Queso is fantastic!

Unfortunately, I'm married to a man who swears On The Border is delicious but he's wrong and this place is fantastic! I am in love with the queso and the charro beans and would come here everyday if it wasn't all the way on the other side of town. This place boasts some pretty good Tex Mex and... read more

I went to this restaurant because it was in walking distance of my hotel. I was not impressed with the quality of service or timely service. The portions for the price are ridiculous. The atmosphere was good liked the design of the place.

One of my favorites in Arlington, TX. Salsa is served warm with warm think chips. Goes great with their margaritas. My boyfriend and I like to split the San Juan platter with the ribs and stuffed shrimp. Staff is very friendly and food is great.

We came during lunch. The music was louder than it needed to be, it was lunch not happy hour. Our waiter wasn't really all that friendly and seemed like there were other things he'd rather be doing. The service was also slow. The food was okay. The chips are good when they're fresh and warm. The tamales were delicious. I... More

Pappasito's is always a great meal, however we were disappointed when waiting more than 30mins for essentially appetizers! We only waited 5-10mins for a table so it wasn't overly busy. We are fairly certain our waiter just forgot to put our order in. He kept blaming it on the kitchen staff.

We recently dined with our family at Pappasito's. What a treat. The restaurant has such a fun atmosphere you think you are in the middle of a fiesta. Drinks are very good but expensive. I had the chili relllano and enchilada combination and both were outstanding. My daughter had the shrimp dinner and it looked fabulous and she said it... More

Great place to celebrate a special occasion. The food was awesome, shrimp broche is the way to go, but the fajitas we're great too. Mariachis were playing and the drinks were perfect! Had a great time.

Amazing food, great drinks. The only time I drink Margaritas is here BC they do such a great job making them. Been here a few times, food is always on point and service runs from good to excellent.

We visited Pappasito's on a recommendation from local friends as being the best TexMex in the area. I believe they were right. Everything about this place was wonderful from the atmosphere to the staff and especially the menu and food. A must stop if you are in the area. Fabulously delicious!

Our family celebrated my birthday lunch here at pappasito's. It was very good. With a group of 6, we shared the queso blanco which was incredibly rich cheese with delicious slivers of jalapeno, bell peppers, and fajita. My husband and I shared fajitas with cream sauce and sauteed mushrooms. The food was over-the-top delicious. The fresh flour tortillas were wonderful.
