Good service at peak time during holiday season

Very attentive service even with all the hectic traffic in the restaurant. The food was great too at a reasonable price.

If you want the real Tex-Mex type food this is the place. I have the red fish grilled seafood with shrimp served on a sizzling plate with butter, guacamole and Pico de Gallo

I first actually went to this very Pappasito's in 1998 and have visited it probably at least every 3 years since then, whenever I am travelling to Houston. When travelling you can only have so much fine dining, and sometimes you and your mates just want to chill out on the Veranda with some Margaritas and good food served well,... More

If you want to have a really tasty meal in a nice environment don't miss this spot. The fajitas are always good, but any selection you try will be sure to please. This is a really nice spot for a large group or just a couple. The noise level is high, but the food outweighs that negative.

Tonight's meal at Pappasitos was a big disappointment. What is happening to this restaurant. People still flock there but I can't imagine they are receiving the same lack of service and quality that I received. I asked for no lime in my beer. The beer tasted of lime because they obviously had it in there and thought they could pull... More

A really busy place, very noisy. Went with some friends unable to talk as we couldn't hear each other very well. Food was ok, nothing special. Defiantly would not return to this one.

Decided to have a TexMex meal before heading north. Saw the bright lights and turned around on I10. Daniel was waiter. Nice manners. Marguerita and beef brisket tacos. Delicious. This is a popular place.

Have eaten at pappasitos for years. Not sure if they are still doing half price fajitas on Wednesday but it was a great deal. One restaurant I really miss.

Couldn't wait to dive into this meal. I was formerly a resident of Dallas and used to eat at that location frequently. Now, living in Orlando, we have nothing on par with Pappasito's tex mex. The margaritas are pretty solid as well.

The food, service, and atmosphere were fantastic. The fajitas with the Mexican butter are to die for. Great quality and great tasting food. I was in town for a conference and ended up going back to this place for the rest of my visit because it was so good. The chips and salsa are very good as well. HIGHLY recommend.
