We foodies want to make sure we share all the love so why not right in our own backyard here in Kvegas (Kernersville to all you outside of towners). J.Pepper’s Southern Grille opened with much anticipation and CROWDS a little more than 15 months ago and they haven’t disappointed. Or let up….they actually added onto the space a few months back. I’ve eaten there many times for brunch, lunch and dinner and it’s usually pretty fab. J. Pepper’s is the type of restaurant that has a little something for everyone (as you’ll see from the beauty shots below), another local place that uses fresh local ingredients from local farmers and purveyors in our area. The restaurant is spacious with a great bar complete with community table and a brilliant outdoor patio with umbrellas and a beautiful fireplace. Perfect for dining al fresco. And the menu changes to reflect seasonal offerings as well, on top of the great specials any given night. Last night, I had dinner with my parents and sister’s family so we got to see and try many different dishes, which was super fun. If you are ever there on the night when the Blackened Drum is offered, it is amazing with its spicy tarter sauce and tomato chutney. And with TWO sides (I got the petite salad and grilled zucchini squash), it was plenty…um, yes I ate all of it. Others at the table got the Kernersville Cobb (awesome and different with homemade pimento cheese and roasted beets), Salmon Patties (my Daddy says it was really good and he doesn’t compliment often), Meatloaf (liked and had plenty to take home) and the Filet (sis says OMG). I can tell you their Mac-n-Cheese is delightful and then you can be real adult about it and ask for the Lobster Mac-n-Cheese…YUM. My favorite appetizer by far is their Sweet Potato Guacamole. That could be a meal, but don’t let it be…share it and save room for one of their awesome entrees, salads or sandwiches. And they have amazing sides that are not just your every day stuff. Oh and they have a fantastic brunch with these little biscuits that are so fluffy and perfect. Definitely worth a try…right here in KVegas. And we really needed a place like that in our little in-between town.
