Good food and big portions at a good price.

The Papa's brand has been able to maintain good quality and prices over the years, this experience was no exception.

My wife, my and I were driving from Waco to attend the Rockets game and made our schedule and route to stop by Pappasito's. We arrived around noon on Sunday and got right in. Even though we were in a bit of a hurry we didn’t feel rushed. We ordered the seafood enchiladas, chicken tinga enchiladas, and a side of... More

We loved our server, Joshua S. He was very attentive and helpful. My dining companions had a couple of special requests and he handled it in stride and graciously. It is hard to get good service these days and I don't discount what that adds to a meal. As far as the food, everyone loved what they got. I had... More

Friendly atmosphere, friendly servers. Jimmy, Jason and Stephan are the best. Always aim to please. Extremely efficient, reliable consistent tex mex food. Will not stray from here. Platinum margaritas with quesadillas are a favorite. Thank you Pappasitos.

I travel a bunch and am always in search of a good Mexican meal. This place has it all! Atmosphere, great food, diverse menu, amazing margaritas too! Ended up getting a simple hard taco beef taco platter...didn't know a taco could be made to taste this good! Can't wait to come here again on a future Houston trip. Highly recommend... More

Ended up eating here on a visit from Colorado, on Valentine's Day. The place was crazy busy, but we sat at the bar tables and were served right away. Good food, good drinks, busy atmosphere, very friendly staff. High marks for the spicy chicken, salmon mango salad and Antonio's combo plate.

The first thing my husband and I want to do upon returning to Texas from a trip is indulge in some great Tex-Mex. Pappasito's has always been among our favorites, and is on the way home from the airport. Unfortunately, I was disappointed yet again! The last time (just a few weeks ago) I wasn't pleased with the fajitas, which... More

Want to thank the staff at the restaurant for a great dining experience. We told them we were there for a business mtg and they put us in a quiet corner, very attentive to our needs, but gave us the space to get work done. Great food as well!

I tried the Giant Del Mar, i think that is what the waiter told us: it had the brochette shrimp, beef, chicken, rice, bean..etc. The serving was huge and it was very very very delicious! their fresh tortilla was awesome too, i ended up dipping...

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
