It was okay

Service was good, almost too much service for the bar food we had, but we were there at an off time. Food was okay, nothing special. More of a bar atmosphere.

Tourist trap. Margaritas have no alcohol in it. The 2 glasses of Tequila we ordered to add to the Margaritas because they were so soft were mixed with water that's ridiculous! Avoid this place if you're a tourist they are just trying to take advantage.

Barely anyone there. I had a few beers and then some papas. When the bill came there was a 'new' charge for ketchup. Rubbish. I felt ripped off but thought, 'I won't raise it. That can be their tip'. So I left a very small amount in change. As I went to go the waiter had the hide to ask... More

This is one of several Papa Bills in Mexico City. The one in Polanco is much better. This is basically a sports bar serving Mexican standards and American food. I ordered a small steak. It was tough and poorly seasoned. The drink was small and overpriced. The service was also really horrible, despite the place being empty. I recommend avoiding... More

I went with my wife and the waiter Alfonso didn't inform us about the specials. They charged us extra and when they accepted their mistake... we did not recieve an apologize. At the end the waiter gave us our change in my hand!! That is so rude!

I loved the Margaritas, I come back there only for having some in a nice weekend afternoon. I tried the food only once, Chicken Wings, they were warm up, the flavor was awful and they were still cold in the middle.

I been going to this place in its other location on Polanco to have lunch on business purposes, this was the first time I went with my wife and son, it doesn’t offer much for kids and well I should have known that it’s more like an expensive taco stand where the great value are the beers specials. Its busy... More

My husband and I had chosen a MX$ 99.00 menu and when we received the bill the total was MX$ 232.00 (MX$ 99.00 X 2 = MX$ 198.00). When we asked what did this difference mean, we were told that there was a MX$ 17.00 per person cover charge. We asked to see the menu for the special again and... More

They added salsa, which was not orderd to the bill. They changed the bill and added 101 Pesos manually. I asked for the reason but I got no answer. They told me something like Tip. But 101 Pesos Tip for a small Dinner for two is not fair. Don't step into that tourist-trap!!!!!I We will never return to that place!!!!!!!!!
