We went for our anniversary dinner. This was our first time here. The server we had must have been having a bad night because he wasn't that great. The food was good and the service was fast. The margaritas were good but all in all this place is a little over priced.

Excellent selection of Tex-Mexico dishes. Everything ordered was great including the GF meal. Went on a Sunday afternoon. Busy but seated immediately. Great wait staff. Knew the menu and answered all questions with patience. We'll return!

Very popular place so be prepared to wait a little. The food is really good so it's worth it. The chips are always fresh and warm.

The Mexican food here has a bit of a "twist" from the average Mexican place. Their seafood dishes are fantastic! And I've never had a better Margarita! They are more expensive than any other Mexican place, but, but if you can swing it, it's worth it!

We ordered the fajitas with bacon wrapped shrimp. We miss the casagalardo and Rio bravo this is as close as you will get and better. They even make the tortillas fresh rite there on the spot with the queso dip yuuuum.

I like the food at Pappasito's but the value is not good. Their Fajita's are delicious but the cost is so high you could have gone to a Steak house and had NY Strip vs the flank steak served. The have fresh made tortillas and decent Salsas. The price for Beef Fajitas are Beef $23.95 - $51.95(for 2). If you... More

This review is the same one I wrote in Dec. but that review was under a different user name that I didn't mean to set up. I want my review to go under my main account and so this is a repeat.

This, and the neighboring sister restaurant, Pappadeaux are both very popular restaurants for the atmosphere, quality and quantity of food. Lots of (good) service and high energy. If I had to note some negatives, parking is tight, lines are long on weekends and the "baseline" Mexican food is pricey. Nonetheless, a great evening out and worth the money.
