Very Good Food, Okay Service

We have been going to Pappasitos for years, and we have always done take-out. The take-out service is not the greatest, but is better than others. Sometimes it takes forever because they can get extremely busy. But it is worth the wait.

I had a wonderful time eating at this location. Pappasito's prepared a wonderful salmon salad for my dietary restrictions and I was throughly delighted with the dish.

My wife and I decided to try Pappasito's after we had a bad experience at the I-10 East location. We went in mid afternoon so it wasn't as busy as they can be. We were seated and the chips and dip was bought, but we were headed down the same path we had at the I-10 east. We sat there... More

Stopped here to grab a quick bite and couldn't have been more pleased! Very flavorful and perfectly seasoned tacos and chips with salsa. Wish we had one of here places closer to home!

Gone here many times and have never been disappointed. The food and service has always been excellent. The only drawback is the noise from customer chatter.

Don't know how the PAPPAS brothers do it, but they do it well- every time. Great cheese enchiladas, massive potions, margarita? Oh yes please. Chips? Light and crunchy. Treats for the kids... Balloon animals. In door, outdoor seating, a definite plus. To go orders nice an efficient, always fresh.

Really enjoyed this place. Service was only fair but the food made up for that one shortcoming. Great Tex Mex in great surroundings. Very homey and comfortable. Good hot food if you enjoy that also. Desserts were wonderful.

As usual on a week night this place was packed. Our party of six started with a couple bowls of fresh thin nacho chips accompanied by an excellent red salsa excellent and a decent “white” salsa with either dill and / or cilantro. The queso was excellent and the guacamole very good. Out meals varied from with seafood, beef and... More

I've dined both here and on the Gulf Freeway a total of about a dozen times and it has never disappointed. Their table-side guacamole is great as you can tailor the amount of chilli added. And if you're there during happy hour (or slightly after) you get great value margaritas. I usually stick to their fish - snapper or mahi-mahi.
