Papas and Beer never disappoints. The food is great, the portions are huge and the service is always fast and friendly. I enjoyed the cheese dip appetizer, about 1/3 of the fajita burrito, and a side of rice. My husband enjoyed the remaining 2/3 the next night for dinner. Always a great spot for good, "cheap," Mexican food.

This was one of our favorites when we lived in H'ville. This January we had a family gathering there and they accommodated our raucous group beautifully. Food's excellent, too!

I've been to A LOT of Mexican restaurants. My quest is the perfect Chili Poblano. It's hard to find. Usually it's made with cheese. I want one made with meat and authentically made. Papa's and Beer knows what it's doing.

I have been going to this place for about two years and I will say that you can't ask for much more.... Great food, great value, great service, great drinks, and always a smile from the staff!

I live in Henderson County, NC and this is my all-time favorite restaurant in the county! I have ordered most of the menu so far and have loved everything! It's California Mexican food that is just plain wonderful and the interior is rustic and fun though if you want something quiet don't go here as it's always jam packed with... More

Great California Mexican dishes in a noisy, family atmosphere. Crowded and long waits on weekends, but worth the wait. There are several dishes without spice that are still clearly authentic Mexican--but from the east coast.
