This review is for the Pappasitos on I-45 at Airtex. I had the medium chicken fajitas and dessert. Both were excellent and each dish was made to perfection. The best and only place for authentic Mexican food. I highly recommend it!! Watch for a review of the new Woodlsnds Pappasitos coming Summer 2015!

While visiting family in Houston, they said we have to try Pappasitos. The atmosphere was super fun and loud....festive!! Margaritas were very good along with the four different kinds of salsa. My food was so fresh and tasty. Will definitely revisit.

This restaurant was nicely decorated and the service was good. However, the menu was very predictable: mostly gloppy, heavy Tex-Mex. Even that would have been ok, except the night we were there the kitchen/restrooms were giving off a very powerful disinfectant kind of smell. Very unpleasant. With so much good Mexican food in Houston, you can definitely do better than... More

I try to eat here every time I am in Houston. Just love their fajitas. We always do the family style chicken & beef. More than enough for 4 people. I enjoy watching them make their tortillas. Can't say enough good things about this place. Highly, highly recommend!

Food was good, as was the company. Staff went the extra mile to ensure we all laughed and smiled while we ate.

Prices have gone up since I've first visited a few years ago. But the quality and presentation seems better. I must say that I am very picky about food (quality, taste, appearance, price, etc). And I do not each red meat or pork. Yes, you can taste the quality of the food. Not the best, but not bad either. On... More

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
