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.

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.

I know a lot of people that have gone there so I tried it for lunch. I was disappointed in the food and then I got the bill. Never went back.

I had lunch there last week and it was great! They serve all the usual dishes. I like that, since I know what to expect. Atmosphere is casual. The cantena side is decorated with customer's graffiti on all the walls. Service was excellent. Located just east of the railroad on Oro-Dam boulevard.
