Good Mexican food, but Expensive.

On a recent trip to Papasito’s, I ordered an entree salad. The salad was very good, but I felt that the price was high for what I got. I tend to only eat here when friends declare that this is the only place they want to eat. The restaurant is crowded and noisy. I used to love it, but not... read more

My favorite Mexican fix in all of Texas. Any time we get near a Pappasito's city, we go there! Portions are huge but that doesn't mean taste is sacrificed. Love their chips and salsa and wish I could get an IV of their guacamole!!!!! YUM!

Not such a good experience compared to normal. Maybe I was just to late for the fresh food and ended up with what looked like someone else's previously served dinner. One poor visit should not stop me from going back. Two probably would.

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.
