Good Tex-Mex Chain Restaurant Food

We stopped here while on a road trip to see the two Texas MLB parks. Chose this place based on TA reviews. It's OK, but we've had better Tex-Mex at a non-chain restaurant. The margaritas were pretty good. Chips and 3 varieties of salsa were interesting. For sure, the tortillas are fresh and made on... read more

This is my favorite Tex Mex restaurant in the universe. When I travel to Houston or Dallas I book my flights to coordinate so I can eat the day of arriving and day of departure. Chicken fajita's are my favorite and the butter is awesome that comes with it. The salsa is incredible.

Good atmosphere and courteous staff. The salsa has a smokey taste that we did not care for. The queso was too American not enough tex. On the brighter side, the tortillas were excellent, my chicken soft taco and my wife's chicken burrito were second to none.

I'm not a big fan of chain eateries but the Pappa's offerings are different. This Pappasito's is right on par with all of the others I've eaten. Great service and menu. The food was really well done and the option to sit outside was great.

Found this restaurant while searching for a good spot to meet a friend near Cowboys Stadium. What a find! The atmosphere was delightful from the moment we got out of our vehicles. Very cool, old wood, fountains, indoor and outdoor eating spaces. We couldn't wait to see what the menu provided. Suffice to say the options were all there and... More

The cheese queso dip was great. The chips are light and thin, but be careful with the fillet mignon fajitas, not so good. A little too rare for my taste even though I had them cook it longer. Beware of GPS, it will take you to an abandoned building about four miles away.

They charge US$ 9 for a marguerita - that is way too sweet. They pour beer and margueritas on the same kind of glass. We ordered a chilli con queso and got a tiny bowl of melted cheese with pico de galo. When I asked the waiter about the ground beef and henas, he told me there weren't any and... More

The restaurant has a great atmosphere and covered outdoor patio. It is right next to the Comfort Suites hotel so it is convenient for drinks or dinner. Food is typical Mexican. Good but not amazing.
