This place was packed. A testament that the food and drinks are good. The food was very good, the beer cold and drinks were tasty. Another fine food restuarant I will return to.

I really don't care to come here, but my husband really likes it. I find it very noisy and feel rushed. I think the salsa is too spicy. They are always very busy so that tells me that many other people DO like it. The portions are large, but I just don't care for the taste they present.

Chips and guacamole and queso dip was very good. First time ever having queso and loved it. Hadn't even heard of it before I guess it is a Texas thing. We ordered the fajitas for 2 and it fed 3 of us. Waitress was excellent! Loved the fajitas because they didn't have that heavy fajita seasoning you get at most... More

This is always the best. Always great! We prefer the Fajitas, But love the Soft Tacos too. They hire great kids and train them to be superior as hosts. This please is not to be missed.

This is a great Tex-Mex Restaurant in deep East Texas. With so many choices in the area, this place knocks it out of the park! From fresh chips and salsa to freshly made tortillas to excellent main courses. You will not be disappointed!

This restaurant was chosen by family members who must have some fond memories of family outings here. Surely it wasn't for the food. The server was very good, but he was at the mercy of the kitchen. The last two of a party of seven that ordered were the first to get meals, and vice versa, the first ordering were... More

I can't say it was the worst mexican cuisine I've ever had but left much to be desired. I ate the fajita chicken. First off nothing like fajitas any where else on the planet. The chicken, obviously frozen, came out in a pile covered in a thick government cheese called queso on their menu. The meal on paper looks like... More

The server was good but the food was awful. Worst Mexican we've ever eaten - the whole family thought the same thing about their meal - soup and steak fajitas. We will not be back.

We love the seasoned chips at Papacita's. The food is good; nothing really spectacular, but a good casual meal at a reasonable price. The Chicken Parilla is one of our favorites. The service is always good. The staff is friendly and always keep drinks refilled and salsa bowls full. They are slowly making some much needed updates to the building.... More
