Getting Better

Posted on 04 / 10 / 2014

The first time I went to The Pepper Sisters, I was mostly underwhelmed. The in-house salsa was okay, dinner was anti-climactic, and I had absolutely no desire to ever try it again. However, on a whim I ended up trying it with my partner again a couple weeks ago. Having extremely low expectations and only getting something so that we basically didn't go hungry, we shared the bean burrito entree veganized, figuring it would at least be hard to make horrible. Boy were we pleasantly surprised! It was actually a really enjoyable night out, and we enjoyed the meal so much that we went back again for the same thing a week later.

Bellingham's restaurants tend to underwhelm me almost every time. I feel like the money would be better spent on a home-cooked meal. While I haven't had a "knock my socks off" restaurant experience here yet, the Pepper Sisters has given me the best experience I've had so far.

Mediocre food, bad service

The food here is over-priced, mediocre Mexican food. As a Hispanic who grew up on the southern border, I was a bit nervous to eat at this joint; however, I was pleasantly surprised that the food was not terrible. Unfortunately, it wasn't that good, either, landing solidly in the nether realm of "it was ok, but I wouldn't go back."

The brisk, almost rude service (from more than one waitress) definitely reinforced that "not going back" sentiment. We were not at the restaurant while it was busy; in fact, when we arrived we were only the third of small parties. When we left, the place was slightly busier, but certainly not hectic, and not at all an atmosphere that excused our treatment at the hands of our servers and cashier.

I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone who knows and enjoys real Mexican food, and I definitely wouldn't recommend this place to anyone who expects warm, friendly service.

Pros: Fresh ingredients, Vegan options, Cool setting
Cons: Mediocre food, Bad service, Expensive

Pepper Sisters has always been a favorite. I love the bright open atmosphere, friendly staff and vegan friendly dinner choices. It is a fun place to be and it shows in the bustling business that they do throughout the year. The deck is great in the spring and summer and the lounge area to grab a sangria while waiting is whimsical and comfy. When you look around the restaurant you will see all ages having a great time and enjoying their food with smiles on their faces. Prices are inexpensive and you will not be dissapointed. Check it out!

Pros: Consistently Good Food, Great vegan options, Nice art

Went with friends for my birthday..
First the enviroment was AWESOME! The menu options were great as we had a "mixed crowed". Everyone loved their food!
I thought the prices were "ok" not the best but certainly not bad for the options we had!
The sopapilla is vegan and TO LIVE FOR! We ordered more for everyone it was SO good!
the biggest down fall was the inability to seperate the checks, so if you're going with friends remind them to bring cash!
I will go back again to try more food for sure!

Pros: Awesome food , Great Service
Cons: a little pricey, unable to split the check

I always make it a point to eat at Pepper Sisters whenever I'm visiting friends in Bellingham. The food is always tasty, the atmosphere is always lively, and the booze is always chilled. Makes for great nights out!

Exceptionally veggie friendly

We eat here regularly and the food does not disappoint. Every night they have two specials, and one is always vegetarian. Many menu items can be prepared to meet vegan and food allergy requirements. This is a great restaurant to visit if you have vegetarians and meat eaters in your group. Everyone will leave happy and no one will feel like they had to compromise. Oh, and every table gets a basket of fry bread with honey butter....absolutely fantastic.

Pros: Delicious, Not your standard menu, Menu clearly marked for vegetarians
