I always enjoy eating here, great food and environment. I tried the Plato feast tonight and it is unbelievable, with ribs, fajitas and shrimp. You cannot go wrong eating here.

We visited from out of town & found this on TripAdvisor. Great atmosphere, good food, very good, friendly & knowledgeable staff (shout out to our waiter William). A bit pricey for Tex-Mex - the only downside. We had mixed fajitas & cheese enchiladas. The food was cooked perfectly and came out fast -even though the place was crowded with locals... More

This was a very positive experience. Only suggestion- the young ladies at the greeting/check in desk looked bored, uninterested and unhappy. That poor first impression was assuaged by all the other... More

Pappasito's is a reliable choice, as is anything from the Pappas company. The primary issue is the competition in this area. Grilled items here are the standouts, the TexMex standards are ok. If I'm eating enchiladas I'm going to nearby Lupe's or El Fenix, but this is a good choice.

Always great food and drink. Love the margarita and bacon wrapped shrimp. Fajitas are out of this world.
