Don't think diet

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%!

I was not impressed with my dish. I am from California where there is true Mexican food. There was much to our dinner at all.

We've been to Papa's and Beer several times It's probably the best Mexican Restaurant we've been to in the Caroina's. My husband and I have been waiting for our friends from California to visit so we could take them to Papa''s and Beer. Since they both love Mexican food. They finally came to visit. We live about 2 hours from... More

Fajitas! Mole! Enchiladas! Burritos! We are blessed to live nearby and order takeout a couple of times a month....and have never been disappointed. The flavor and spices are wonderful here, and the salsa bar has the best fresh sauces to get it just the way you like it. I love the chicken mole burrito, but be warned...it is huge. All... More

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.
