Jammed packed but worth the wait

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... read 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.

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!

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!

A cheap fast food place,I don't even call these places Restaurants because they are not its fast food mass produced with artificial taste served with artificial service ,they make their staff memorise the welcome greeting which is really funny.

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

Pappasito's is always excellent. I had beef fajitas with extra sides of cheese and sour cream. I always tend to fill up on the wonderful chips and salsa. The fajitas were excellent and consistent with what I have come to expect from Pappa's restaurants over the years. Service was excellent and obviously well trained. Timing was perfect. I highly recommend... More

Went here because my husband had never been and I hadn't been in years, and now I remember why. So terribly loud in there, we could barely talk and this was a Wednesday night. Took forever for our waitress to come and take drink orders. Finally bring chips and salsa and the chips were covered in salt. I think they... More
