I won't get into the "authentic" debate, but I will say that you will have to look hard to find better flavor and quality elsewhere. Starting with the chips and salsa, to the queso dip and fresh made flour tortillas, to the myriad of entrees, there are no wrong choices. All of the standards are... read more

The service was great and food was very good. Manager came to table and greeted us and because it was our first time there gave us free dessert.

For a Thursday evening prior to a holiday, this placed was packed. Since we don't mind sitting at the bar, we we able to get a quick adult beverage and place our order. I had the chili 'relleno along with a cheese enchilada. The 'relleno was a little tough but the enchilada was right on as were my wife's. Service... More

This is a great place to go if you feel like paying $24 for a plate of really average Mexican food. The host staff greets you with the warmth and familiarity of a traffic cop. The managers respond to complaints with terse, monosyllabic grunts. The wait staff move with all the speed and urgency of somebody nursing a really bad... More

This is an excellent choice for locals enjoying Mexican food. It is also very convenient for travelers using I-75 on the north side of Atlanta. Easy access on and off at Windy hill exit

This is a great place to go as a couple or family. Although it is noisy and there can be a long wait, this is a spectacular place for tex mex food, large parties and amazing margaritas. I have eaten here for years. If you plan well it is worth it. Fajitas to share are awesome! If you have small... More

I ate here last over 6 years ago when I lived in the ATL area. This was my first trip back and the meal was fantastic. My husband said the food was better than what we ate on our trip last year to Mexico. It's a little pricey but excellent food and service so we will visit again if we... More

Whenever we are in this area, we make it our restaurant of choice. One of our favorite plates in the Plato Del Mar. My personal favorite is the Shrimp Brochette. The Guacamole is worth a try, too. Actually, I have liked everything I have ever had at Pappasitos. It's a little noisy, so don't go if you want to have... More

I had a great time at this Pappasito's Cantina location! I ordered the Shrimp, Steak & Chicken Fajitas. Since it was the day after Mother's Day, and there was still lobster leftover, they offered to switch-out the shrimp for lobster! I accepted...and I enjoyed! Very friendly staff!

Recommend at least a meal here with friends. Try out the different margaritas, especially the tequila margarita. Also, the shrimp bruchette was really tasty. Service was good and staff knowledgeable. They would be able to recommend food and drinks to order.
