if you love Mexican food, this is the place to go. Very popular place. I like a place like this with such a turn over you know the food is fresh. The help is well trained and I go there at least once a month.

My family and I eat here weekly. The food is good. The service is fast and it's inexpensive. The fried ice cream is so yummy!

I live in Houston and come to my vacation home in Laurel Park several times a year. I went here only once when I had a craving for Mexican food....what a mistake. Fajitas do not come with gravy!!!!!! I was so disappointed I threw the food out. Never again!_Y'all need a great Mexican restaurant.

The food was very good and lots of it. It was so good that we had to try the desserts. I come from an area that doesn't have any Mexican restaurants nearby so this was a real treat. We had to top this off with a Margarita. Try the Chimichangas. I had the chicken one.

We were in town on a business trip and one of our local colleagues guided us to Papas and Beers. When we pulled in I wasn't sure where he was taking us but upon entry the service was fast and friendly. We were promptly brought our bean dip and we grabbed a few variety of salsas from the salsa stand.... More

The serving are large-you could share. The bean dip is also very nice. My husband liked his lunch-a grilled chicken & rice dish. I really enjoy Mexican white sauce and it is how I judge a restaurant. This review may not be fair because of that. This was not as good a sauce as the place I usually go.

The bean dip they give out when you get there is AMAZING. I could eat just it. Huge portions, delicious food. Recommend it 100%!
