A little disappointed for the first time at this Pappasito's. My husband and I shared the medium portion of fajitas from the lunch menu (the choice was either small or medium). There wasn't an option for fajitas for two like is offered on the dinner menu. Our waiter told us the portion size was the same as the dinner option,... More

You can't go wrong with the fajitas here but just about everything is good. Best in the area around airport hands down!

When I was in Houston a few years back I remembered loving Pappasito's and even went back and read my past review. (Same chain, different location in Houston). I couldn't wait to go here again. I even called it one of my favorite Mexican restaurants. I wish I wouldn't have returned. I had such great memories of the first meal... More

The waiting time was ridiculous... The front desk's 10 min ended up being 45 min. They were doing what they please with the seating order, not respecting the queue. Most of the food was greasy with huge quantities & lacked on taste. The only highlights were the fantastic Margaritas, the nachos & salsa & our great waiter. If you can... More

Pappasito's is my favorite TexMex place in Texas. The food is always excellent either at lunch or dinner and the best top shelf margarita anywhere! The staff is always friendly, attentive and helpful!

Went here on a business trip while in Houston area and found this to be a very busy but excellent restaurant. We had about a 25 minute wait but gave us time to have a drink and talk a little about anything other than work. The restaurant was fairly noisy but we asked for a table toward the back of... More

Now this is the way it needs to be, From Service to Food everything is awesome, their home made sauce is great. All dishes are good and you can tell the Management cares.

The place seemed nice and the waitress was professional but we had to get our order to go and it was a shame to notice once we were in the hotel that our order was wrong. The incorrect order included fried shrimp that tasted really bad.

Had to hit this place for Cinco De Mayo and wasn't disappointed. Fresh Salsa that had a smoky flavor that was unique. Thin, crispy tortilla chips and margaritas that were fantastic started off a great meal. The steak fajita burrito and cheese and onion enchilada topped off my meal. The fajita beef in my burrito was grilled to perfection, perfect... More
