This is very mediocre food and if you want Mexican food, go elsewhere as this Mexican food in name only. Wait staff don't know what Picosa menas, or what Chilies Toreadoes are. It's a busy top rated restaurant which baffles me to no end.

We loved this place. The prices were reasonable, the food was tasty, the menu was extensive, the service was fast, and the decor is festive. So glad my son suggested we go there for dinner. Now, the golf cart to the yogurt store was a bit much, but this is Texas.

I eat there a lot. The food is very good "Tex Mex". A good value for the money. You get a lot of food for your dollar. But in October I was there for a class reunion. The buffet was good had a little of everything and a good price as well. The bar was open to us at an... More

With many many Tex-Mex places in Longview we forget about Papacita's. We had lunch here with family and it was OK. The food was par with most of their competition but the dining areas could use some refurbishing. Is that why it is so dark in here?

This is a fairly typical Mexican restaurant, the food is good. We had chicken flameado, chicken nachos, and a couple house margaritas. The food is a very solid "good" and consistent on both our visits. If you are like us and not from Longview, don't expect to be bedazzled, but you can expect quality food, hot on the table with...

After a long day at the softball park, Papacita's was calling us! We've eaten here several times and on each occasion, except one, we were very happy with the food and the service (I don't know what happened the other time, maybe because we were in a large group, but the food was cold and the service was not what...

I have never understood the great attraction to this place. Yes, the atmosphere is good. And, it's easy to take a large group here. The reason I have to keep coming back is because some friends pick it for their birthday lunches (go figure). The food is just plain tex-mex with very little seasoning. The "con carne" (chili sauce) tastes... More

Every time I visit Longview, Papacita's is a must stop for a meal, weather it be lunch or dinner. The service is great, the atmosphere is great, but most of all the food is super. It is always served fresh and hot.
