I lived in Houston 15 years ago, and at that time, they had the best Tex-Mex food in town! I was very disappointed with the service (sat at the bar), and the quality of their entires I order. I started with the tortilla soup, it was served without any chicken and avocado's (as described), and overloaded with white cheese! I... More

This was right beside our hotel so we tried it....Very good choice. It was a Friday night and we were seated within 15 minutes. We had our drinks in minutes and water and soda refills were quick all night. I wasn't in the margarita mode but my friend said his was great. They brought out some chips and salsa real... More

Based on a recommendation from a friend we ended up eating here and it was wonderful. The atmosphere is typical of a Tex-Mex location and I was a little apprehensive but I was quickly amazed by the table side guacamole which was great, as well as the hot chips and fresh salsa. I also ordered a shrimp and crabmeat cocktail... More

I have always loved the Pappasito's food. The chips and salsa are some of my favorite. Enchiladas are tasty, I especially like the chicken ones with green sauce. The flour tortillas right off the stove are scrumptious! I do think the food is overpriced but I keep going back! Usually the service is great. Our waitress last time was not... More

We were there after a ball game and got right in - a few minutes later there was a hour wait. It was very busy but we had really good service for food and drinks. Portions are large - we had four people and ordered three meals - still to much food. Would go back.

Moved from Arlington 5 yrs ago. Met my family at Pappasitos when I was visiting. The menu has changed, prices much higher, and the noise level was so high that we couldn't hear each other talk for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. The service was slow and felt ignored at times. Food did not make up for the noise or... More

I always eat a Pappasitos when given the chance. Outstanding Mexican food every time! If you want good Tex Mex food this is the place to go in Texas!

We returned to Texas and Pappasitos was on the list for a return visit, we returned twice, and very much enjoyed the two nights of dinners, the second night we went we had the half price faita and shared plenty of food for two and the ideal night to go to dinner, The first night my sister had seafood enchiladas...
