A “Pepperhead” is someone who’s obsessed with chile peppers, and the founders are true pepperheads. Pete and Tess Montaño (a father-daughter duo) welcome you to the flavors of the Southwest at Pepperhead, a family restaurant in the heart of the four corners.

Because Pepperhead is a locally-owned business, the ingredients are sourced locally as much as possible, working with several area farms and producers. The flavors are true to the area, with emphasis on chile, but check our specials board on the way in — there are surprises to be had with local flavor!
