Had the spicy chicken chipotle lunch this past week. Very delicious and the staff was very accommodating to replace the chicken with fajita steak for a very small charge. Lunch was quick, delicious and attentive. Ordered the side salad which was hefty in size rather than the beans and rice and could have fed 2 with the meat as the... More

The hotel staff recommended this restaurant when I asked about where to go for some good Mexican style food. I am from rural upstate NY and our version of 'ethnic' food is Italian. Pretty much, that's it. So I was thrilled to be out and about where I could get some of what I love. Some spicy Mex (or Tex-Mex)... More

Pappasito's is by far one of the best Tex-Mex Restaurants you will find. The table side guacamole is excellent and the fajitas are worth the price. I always try to eat at a Pappasito;s whenever I am in town.

This was my second visit to a Pappasitos in the last 2 months. Prior to that it had been several years. We used to be regulars. No doubt you will get a large portion of good Mexican food. I have no complaints about that. They use undersized tables that are too small for 4 people so you are crowded at... More

Went there on a Sunday night in February, place was slammed. Huge portions so think before you order how hungry you are. My friend and I split fajitas combo and could barely finish. Her husband had a full plate. Great food you cannot go wrong. Only fyi your clothes will smell like the place, had to air my jacket outside... More

Highly recommend the table side guacamole. Awesome chips and the best Mango margarita. Staff is very courteous. The tables are close together and that would be my only criticism.

Let's get this out of the way, the food is excellent, and this place gets crowded quickly, but I still feel it's a bit overpriced. Yes I know you pay for good quality, but still, $30 for Snapper and shrimp with rice/beans? The service is excellent despite the long wait to get to a table. The place is huge and... More

Everybody said we must have Tex Mex while in Houston so a friend took us to Pappasito's. Food was amazing. I recommend the loaded nachos.

We were flying through Houston with only one meal to eat in the area, and chose Pappasito's based on other locations of the same chain. This location did not disappoint. The service was good, the food was great, and the fact that we had to wait almost half an hour at 2:30 in the afternoon tells you that we're not... More
