I believe any Pappasito's Cantina you visit, you won't be disappointed! The food is great! They have the best tortilla chips I've ever tasted! And I heard it's made daily from scratch. The service is also great! The young servers are always polite, fast and helpful. The margaritas are huge! A must if you are in the area.

Great food, huge portions, and endless chips with green and red salsa both delicious. Fun atmosphere and tortilla machine interesting to watch. Chicken enchiladas a must!!!!! Never disappointed here.

We have come here for the Plato Amor around Valentine's Day for almost 10 years! We brought our kids with us and we had such a wonderful time at dinner. The service was great, and of course the food was delish! One of our best nights there!

Papa's chain of varied food places is always palate pleasing. Papasita's offers tex-mex that is affordable and tasty. If you speak to the manager they can make you a gluten free meal but don't assume that things that are normally gluten free are here. Their broth has gluten and MSG so avoid the soups.

Nice selection of good Mexican food. Chip dips (salsa's) are very good. Including a live strolling band which played some Mexican and other types of music.

THis is one of our favorite places to eat when we are in Houston. Food is cooked perfectly, guacamole is prepared at your table which is a nice touch. Our waitress Sunshine was excellent and made sure we were pleased with everything we ordered. Will return again next time we are in the area.

A lot of places are closed on New Year's day. But the Pappas restaurants always seem to be open on that holiday. We went for a New Years lunch. The place was crowded, but the service and food were excellent. They offered the lunch menu - even though it was a holiday. We both had the daily (Wednesday) lunch special,... More

Enjoyed our meal, fajitas medium size that was plenty for two. Chicken nicely grilled. Very tasty. Loud, crowded environment - perfect for families. Went to location near Reliant Stadium, very convenient.
