Fab food!

Pappasitos is one of our favorite places to go. This location we were extremely pleased with. On a very busy schedule we had a big party and they worked very quick,and diligently to seat us. The ultimate wave is fantastic and our fav dish is the del Mar.

After an initially amazingly poor seating introduction (host tells us he can only sit a business dressed couple he can only seat us in an aisle or by a water station rather than an open table by a window when only 20% of the restaurant was even full yet before dinner crowd arrived), thankfully the manager cleared things up (I...

Pappasito;s has very good Tex Mex food and this location is indicative of the franchise. The only downside to this and all Pappastio's is the acoustics of the restaurant make it very noisy.

One of the reasons we always come back here is for their wonderful, delicious flour tortillas. My husband absolutely loves their shrimp wrapped in bacon. One I'd the best tex-mex restaurants here in Texas in my opinion

Me and my family went to Pappasito's for Sunday Brunch and found ourselves cast aside due to 2 large parties seated immediately after us. We were seated promptly which was nice. However, immediately after we were seated 2 large parties were also seated. These parties had were given chips, salsa and they had their drink order were taken as they... More

I really enjoyed the food and atmosphere here. It was excellent. Not thrilled with the service. They say me and left me but that doesn't take away from the food.

My wife and daughters and I had eaten at the Pappasito's in Austin and really enjoyed it. We came in the middle of the afternoon, and it did not appear to be crowded. The hostess seated us near (very near) a large group that was apparently having some type of celebration. The server that was handling that table was run... More

Whatever you order off the menu it will be awesome. I have never eaten anything at Pappasito's that wasn't delicious. Very good restaurant.

My family and I have been here more times than I can remember over the last couple of years. I can't rave enough about the fajitas (better than Uncle J's IMHO), the fresh seafood (seriously fresh you will think you are dining on the coast), the guacamole, the tortillas, the drinks (especially love the $1 mimosas on Sunday) and the...

The atmosphere was busy and loud. I prefer to sit in a booth, so had to wait a little, however once seated, service by David, was great. For starters, the Wave Margarita was ordered. Next, I ordered the Chili Con Queso (with spicy ground beef), as my appetizer, which came out hot and tasty, with the right consistency. Finally, as... More
