I love this place.

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... read 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.

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 was staying in Oroville and decided to try this place out . I had a hard time deciding what to try as they have quite a few items that sound excellent . I ended up getting the Maria . Its two enchiladas and a taquito split in half . If you order a full meal you get the tortilla... More
