The place was packed so rather than wait I found a seat at the bar. They had Corona on tap which was a first for me. I went with the goblet size glass ($7) and a lime accompanied by fresh chips and warm salsa. The small dish of salsa was excellent as were the chips however due to the inattentiveness... More

Fun restaurant, huge portions, tasty Tex Mex! Be prepared to wait though, it's pretty crazy! It's a more casual vibe in the restaurant, but we really enjoyed the food and would come back again if we were in the mood for Tex Mex.

Although most of my friends love this place, I am yet to be amazed by it. In the 25 years that my friends have dragged me to the different Pappasitos (including this one), I am still waiting for that one dish that makes me want to come back. Yes, you do get a ton of food, but you can get... More

I had lunch with my work colleagues, and we had a great time. Food took a little bit to arrive because we were a large group, but it was fantastic. Chips are thin and crispy, and salsa is just good. I ordered a freshly squeezed lemonade that was really refreshing. My main dish was " Beef fajita tacos al carbón",... More

Good Tex-mex food, not much different than many of the other sit down tex-mex places in Houston. I can't think of anything specific that sets it apart from similar restaurants. If you rarely get tex-mex food or are visiting the area, this is as good as place to get your fix as any. Salsa and green dip are really good... More

Our favorite TexMex restaurant. Restaurant can be loud when crowded but don't let that deter you. The food is fantastic.

This is exactly what I wanted when we came to Texas! We were searching for a lighter lunch after a long afternoon of shopping, and we randomly discovered this restaurant. We ordered the shrimp fajitas for 5, and it was out of this world delicious. I've never had fajitas before, but they were just indescribably flavorful and delicious! Everyone at... More

When at home San Francisco, I'm a regular patron of taquerias where the food is good and easy on the wallet. However, there's nothing tasty or authentic about Pappasito's food. The food was bland and overpriced. Even the name has a double "p" which one would never find in Spanish. Avoid

Let me put it this way... I live in Washington and travel all over but I will not eat any other Tex Mex than Pappasito's in Houston. I stick to my all time favorite - chicken and shrimp fajita's. Now keep in mind, the portions here are large so be careful in ordering. If you are thirsty, try the Reserva... More
