Pappasito's was great. Margarita was well made. Chips were crispy and fresh. Love that the salsa was served warm. Guacamole was tasty and fresh. The meals were nice portions and served hot. Staff was extremely efficient and friendly.

We are here during a layover in Houston. I had the breakfast quesadilla and it was great. Wait staff was friendly and food came out quickly.

I like their fajitas. The meat is so tender. I also like the margaritas, they are not watered down. The atmosphere is festive and the salsa is tasty while you wait. The service is attentive, you never wait for any refills on water or anything.

Great food and staff. Skewers are amazing. They give you so much food, you'll need a togo box. Great bar area too.

During a stop over at George Bush airport, Houston we visited Pappasito's Cantina for a bite to eat and wasn't left disappointed. the Burrito's are very big and very tasty, definitely one of the best airport eats i've had on my travels. The Del Roi Burrito was a personal favourite of mine which was definitely fully lodaed.

I've been here a few times. They are a little pricey for "mexican" food but the quality is good. Happy Hour margaritas and food are a good deal. Ambiance is decent and the place is roomy. I would go again :)

Breakfast options are a little limited at times, especially if you have an early flight, but the bacon, egg, and cheese tacos we had were great as well as the customer service. We will definitely stop in again on our next trip.

Ordered a great pitcher of margarita and had some good chips and salsa to go with it. The fajitas were tasty and the tortillas were warm, soft and fresh. Overall a great meal.
