Ladies, you'll want to wear pants (not skirts) to this rowdy bar: fun-loving waiters will turn people upside down while feeding them tequila slammers.

Trying this again...below is a somewhat PC description of what we witnessed, as my first description of Papas and Beer was too explicit for TripAdvisor. I was not in Papas and Beer for more than 8 minutes, and this is why: Having never been to Ensenada, but hearing that it was the place to be, I made sure to go... More

If your looking for a nice quiet and classy place to eat.... this is not it! It's just about having fun and people watching. The food is good and the beer is cold...what else can you ask for?

We went to Papas and Beer for 2 birthdays. I was actually a little surprised at the level of service we got while there. The drinks were always flowing and the food never took too long to come out to us.

The nightclub is substantially better and the layout rivals clubs in Vegas. It has two levels with a DJ booth at one end with a great led wall. There are multiple tables to book based on your group size.

I had a lot of fun at this place! Nothing fancy here... Cheap beer, tequila and entertaining waiters. Food was what u expect from a place packed with frat boys but is was still just fine. I really did enjoy the chicken wings:)

All of my friends and I were looking forward to going to Papas and Beer. Everyone talks about it and we were all excited to finally go. We reserved the VIP table closest to the DJ booth and we were ready to have a good time. FAR FROM IT. The moment I walk to the door I got dirty looks... More

Don't bother going here! The food is not good and the drinks and the experience is WAY overpriced compared to other local establishments that treat you better! Their drinks are made with cheap Jose Cuervo Tequila and taste terrible. Didn't even use real shot glasses or give you a full shot in the little plastic jello shot things. We came... More

The credit card transactions are slow and kinda sketchy. My husband and I had a beer. It was ok. It was one of those things like "when in Rome". When in Ensenada Mexico, you have to have a beer at Papas N Beer. It wasn't that great. I wouldn't go again. The entertainment is raunchy. But if you don't mind... More

You get off ship, plastered every where. Papas and Beer. So I head there, I've heard of it before. Time to try it out. I get to table where both chairs are wobbly, and table covered with salt. And this was given by a employee, I didn't go to this table by self. It was closest to front of store... More

Went here and had buckets of beer, margaritas, nachos and way too much fun. A little over priced but made up for it in entertainment value. The only complaint is about the street vendors. If you are seated near the sidewalk you will be approached numerous times, but a table change easily remedied this. The waiters were great and very... More
