Papcito's is a gold restaurant overall. The food is always good and satisfying. Most people like to sit in the cantina. They have tv's so you can watch your favorite sports program ( mainly baseball and football :) ). They accommodate large groups if you call ahead. The service has always been... read more

When having out of town company, this is where I always plan to take them. It never fails to be the best food, the best and friendliest service, a comfortable and fun time. The decor is so fun and happy and colorful. All ages can have a great meal and a great time here. Patrons have the choice of seating... More

It's a cool little authentic Mexican food place with great margaritas, tasty chips and salsa and pleasant service. We had a early lunch and had a variety of tacos. Many t.v.s of varying quality. You can tell the cable has been spliced as the signal degenerates. What do you expect? I'm ok with it. We never sit in the dining... More

I like the meals here, and the pricing is typical and worth having freshly prepared meals compared to fast food. While Papacito's isn't my all time favorite, it is one of the better Mexican restraunts in town.

Doesn't matter what I order, I am so happy with my dish. Everything about this place is wonderful, service, location, kicked back setting. Will probably eat here every time I'm in Oroville.

I am a purchasing agent in Oroville & the place I take most of our vendors when they come into town is Papacitos ! It is the best Mexican restaurant in Oroville. The chips & salsa is awesome and they never charge you for extra chips like some other mexican places do. If you want a tip on what to... More

This Is In Response To Davidh75's Review.. Not To Be Rude Or Anything, But Just A Little Heads Up, Before You Criticize A Restaurant, Make Sure You've Got The Right One.. The Mexican Restaurant Across The Street From RaboBank And Blondie's Diner Is Called "FRANCISCO'S" NOT Papacitos.. And Papacitos Is An Amazing Restaurant With An Even More Amazing Staff And... More

I went here with my husband and the food was average. I came again with co-workers and received average food again. The salsa is good, but not exceptional. I ate carnitas that were a little dry. I ate a tostada with wilted iceberg lettuce that was nothing special. The beans are bland. The Spanish rice is under seasoned and bland.... More

Prices are great, menu selections offer variety, and most importantly - the food is awesome!! The location is good as well, being right on the main drag in Oroville. Nothing negative to say.

I ate at this place one time, located across the street from RaboBank and Blondie's restaurant, the food is a little bit expensive for mexican food, and the food is really bland and premade too.. not memorable at all.. would not really recommend this place.
