Pappasito's is definitely not your average "run of the mill" Mexican restaurant. After eating there you may consider it to be gourmet Mex. Fresh ingredients all the way around from salsa to dessert. Great bar drinks and the menu also has wonderful shrimp, fish and even BBQ all done with a Mexican flair and all very flavorful. Large portions and... More

We sat here for hours and the server just kept bringing iced tea, chips and salsa. Relaxing atmosphere, very clean and friendly.

I thought $10 for guacamole appetizer was a little steep, but it was pretty good. My daughter and I shared a lunch combo (fish taco and a beef enchilada), which was also good. The service was excellent.

My first time at Pappasito's. Parking lot was packed... hostess said it would be about 15 minutes, gave us the vibrating coaster and we went out and sat on a bench. Coaster never buzzed. 25 minutes later, I went inside and saw lots of empty tables. Hostess took us straight to a table with no apology or smile. Kinda ticked... More

This place came highly recommended and it did not disappoint. The Salsa and chips is very different than your standard Mexican restaurant. The shrimp in seasoned olive oil and butter was great. The rice and beans was very tasty as well. The servers were fun and worked as a team. The lunch meal has a great variety and the portions... More

It is amazing how the Pappas family has been able to replicate in Atlanta exactly the same ambiance of the Pappasito's restaurants in Houston. The food is excellent and sets the standard for Tex-Mex found. I will definitely return for more Pappasito's dishes but next time I will skip the fajitas. The flavor of the last 2 fajitas I had...

Started out a little slow but when Agustin figured out we had been waiting a little while he swooped right in and took over our table and saw that we received outstanding service for the balance of the meal. Great service recovery Agustin!

Food is always good. Its tex-mex though, not authentic Mexican. But it is always quick. I have been there when they were packed and still get seated pretty quick. Don't let the full parking lot fool you. I have driven around looking for parking longer then I waited for a table.

The steak quesadilla was excellent. Ceviche has changed at pappasitos but not as good as in the past. Service was very good and the best we've ever had at the restaurant.
