Doesn’t get better than this!

Delicious Tex-Mex, cold beer and great décor. Plus, good service at the bar. Outside seating is very pleasant in the evening.

You will enjoy the fresh chips, salsa's and the fajita's- chicken, fish, or beef. It is pricier than other Houston TEX-MEX places in the area but the atmosphere is what the difference with it being very clean, relaxing and vibrancy of the area.

The accompanying salsas were tasty. Everything was ok except for the taco. It was so salty that I couldn't take another bite. We were satisfied with the food... More

I absolutely love going to Pappasito's, it is always included in our annual trip to see our grandparents. The chips are fresh and crisp, and their salsa is often made right there in the restaurant.
