This review is the 1960 location near Willowbrook mall. However, I've been to this location and the one on Katy freeway in the past. This place is not only consistent but very good. First, we were in the mood for seafood and Pappadeux had a 45 minute wait. To which we certainly did not want to do. So we went... More

I enjoyed my food but it was way too much and was pretty pricey. Would have preferred a little smaller portion with a cheaper price. Atmosphere of restaurant was great! Overall, an enjoyable meal.

Fajitas were very good and the service (we had a trainer as our server) was excellent. Only one thing to be aware of...when you order beef and chicken fajitas mixed on the same platter, you will get a lot more chicken than beef. This is not a good option if you want more beef than chicken. We had to learn... More

Good food, great service...what else is there to say? Very decently priced lunch specials. Get the Mexican Cheesecake for desert!

Had a great start w/chips and salsa, love the salsa! My husband and I were looking for a lighter dinner so we had the grilled salmon, split. It was great! The black beans were really good as was the cilantro rice. They put a lot of cilantro on the side for the fish and I LOVE cilantro so it was... More

for those looking for a cold beer and tex-mex kind of place, this is good. Taste and quality of the food and service were very good. Portion size is large.

This chain used to be great. The prices have gone sky high for what is offered. We also noted that everything was very, very salty.

I've been to this Pappasito's twice now and had tasty food and friendly servers both times. Our server Nequila (sp?) was knowledgeable about the menu, attentive, and warm. The time we went to Westheimer the food could best be described as "over-charred". At the South Loop restaurant, the beef was delicious (maybe not spiced the same as the amazing beef... More
