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.

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.
