Business Description

Located in Grand Forks, North Dakota, The Red Pepper has been a beloved landmark in the area since the 1960s. With its unique location nestled in a residential area between the University of North Dakota and downtown Grand Forks, it has become a mainstay for locals and visitors alike.

Originally a small, no-frills taco shop, The Red Pepper truly became something special when the Tellmann family took it over in 1973. According to the story, Bruce Tellmann, who was working as a writer at the time, couldn't resist stopping at The Red Pepper every time he drove by. Instead of finding a new route, he and his wife Janet decided to purchase the business and turn it into something truly special.

While the name and menu may have remained the same, the Tellmanns brought a level of pride and care to the business that made it a favorite among Grand Forks locals. And while the menu may be limited, with a focus on tacos, chalupas, and sandwiches, everything is made with the utmost care and attention to detail.

The Red Pepper has a cozy, casual atmosphere that perfectly matches its no-frills menu. It's the perfect spot to grab a quick bite with friends or to satisfy a late-night craving.

While the food may not be fine dining, it's certainly delicious and filling. The soft tacos are a standout, with perfectly seasoned meat and a variety of toppings to choose from. And for those looking for something a little heartier, the grinders and burgers won't disappoint.

Overall, The Red Pepper is a must-visit for anyone in the Grand Forks area looking for a quick, delicious meal. The Tellmanns' pride and care shine through in everything they do, making The Red Pepper a true local gem.
