Great Mexican

Had a small group (6) and the service and the food were excellent! Nice assortment of appetizers and main courses. Did not try the desserts - no room left for dessert!

I always enjoy visiting Pappa when I come to Houston. On this trip I brought along three newbies who had never eaten here. I warned them of the large portions and they were pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere is great, like a fun party. Come hungry and leave happy!

Met someone here for a business related meeting. Not a good idea. The place is popular -- got there at 7pm on a Tuesday and was told 30 minute wait. We decided to sit in bar area at a hightop. Service in bar area wasn't too good for eats ... had to flag down waiter and ask several times for... More

First time here. I love Mexican food but this was not the best I ever had. Chips were cold and the salsa was very runny. Service was friendly. It was a Sunday so we did have to wait a good 20 minuets for a table of two. I don't remember what we had but I do remember it was A... More

Most of the time Pappasito's is very good - if they continue in the way we were treated this particular Sunday, we will not be back. We were a party of five for lunch on a Sunday. Tables were empty every where. We could see tables next to one another that could be put together, but we were not offered... More

All of the Pappas's restaurants are excellent and Pappasitos is no exception. They have fabulous margaritas and the best chips in town. Be careful or you will fill up on chips. The food is delicious and they are very generous with their portions. We especially like their pulled pork Quesadillas.

Friendly, kind, humorous waitress. - And the best Guacamole, I have ever had! - The down side is the extreme noise, when the restaurant is crowded. If you want to have a normal conversation, don't come here during lunch hours!

Wednesday is half price fajitas. Best sides around the pico is made fresh and the refried beans taste smokey and delicious. Torrtillas are made for all to see and the Mariachi band added to the atmosphere. Only negative is we dont have one in Oklahoma.

I've been a Pappasito's fan for years and everyone I've taken there always tell me that it's the best Mexican food they've ever had. If you're going for the first time, I suggest you order my favorite, beef fajitas. I recommend getting the charro bean option when asked. Also, request some melted garlic butter because they normally only bring that... More
