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.

I travel the nation in my job, and my wife and I frequent Atlanta because of Emory U's medical facilities. I had discovered Pappasito's about twenty years ago in Houston. I'd guess since the Marietta store was built we've dined there forty or fifty times. We were there this past Wednesday and will be back there for lunch tomorrow.. My... More

Add enough cheese to hide the fact that there is no seafood in your dish . Been patronizing this place fr years as well as other pappas restaurants and i think this small... More

I have been here a couple of times before. Luckily we didn't have to wait too long and waited at the bar for our table. Great guacamole and margaritas! We had shrimp taco's and they were excellent. This place is always packed on the weekend which makes it hard to find a parking spot right away.

We stopped at Pappasito's on Saturday and were really pleased with lunch there. We had the freshly made guacamole, prepared tableside, and it was delicious. Because it was lunch, we had some salads and other light fare but all was quite tasty making me want to head back for dinner to try all they have to offer. The service was... More

Great service, large amount of food for the money and very delicious. I had the Pappasitos Salad with shrimp ad it was enough for two people. The waitress was very attentive and made my visit very nice.
