love this place

I've been going here for the past seven years. Its always consistant and well priced! The fajita tacos with a salad is my favorite! Kids kove the cheese dip and the fried icecream. Their Gold margaritas are hard to beat!

We each have our favorites and always order them. Always very pleased with our meals. We usually go at off times as we find it too noisy and chaotic otherwise. The servers are very quick and often have a great sense of humor. It's our go to place for a meal in Hendersonville.

Excellent food. Our go-to Mexican restaurant. We've been going since the doors opened years ago. I understand this is California-style Mexican food. I don't know and I don't really care about whether it's classified as Tex Mex or Cali Mex but I can say it's not your typical Americanized Mexican meal. The seasoning sets the food apart from competitors. Bean... More

Obvious why this place keeps winning awards! Requirement of 100 characters for review totally unnecessary!

The menu,the food, family, atmosphere and an obvious overall commitment to their customers make our recurring trips to the Papa's and Beer restaurant in Hendersonville a joy and a terrific value. You couldn't ask for anything more in a restaurant. We always look forward to the warm smiles and the friendly staff along with tremendous selection of quality food.

LOVE the steak fajitas. These guys do their meat on a real charcoal grill and it tastes GREAT! The portions are so large you can take half of it home in a "doggy bag" for another full meal! Have eaten at the Hendersonville and Hwy. 191 locations, like Hendo best.

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!
