Excellent group service

We recently went here for a family/informal wedding reception. Called ahead for reservations but they don't do them. I arrived first and said we needed 27 seated. They said no problem. Everyone arrived and we all ordered. Our waiter was very good at handling a large group. He kept all glasses full... read more

We met with a large family group about 8 pm on a Friday night. Atmosphere was nice and wait staff friendly. Just wished the food was better. I heard several people in my group state the enchiladas were poor. Mine was barely covered with chili. The tortilla soup was more like chicken and rice soup. It looked like the meal... More

Our favorite restaurant for Tex-Mex. They have a special on Tuesday night and a really good grilled chicken breast. My personal favorite is their puffy taco and tortilla soup.

The food and drinks here only merit 2 stars...the service bumped it to a 3 with qualifications. The restaurant itself is nicely decorated and looks inviting. We were presented with a choice of upstairs or down, so my husband said, "Wherever I won't be seated next to a 5 year old's birthday party!". We laughed, the manager laughed and sent... More

Drinks weren't bad but the salsa and food left a lot to be desired. Would stop here again but only if I am really thirsty.

My favorite thing by far at Papacita's is the chips and salsa, really good! I will go just for that. The food is pretty good, always good service when we go. They bring the food out quick. It's a big restaurant and they can fit a lot of people. Highly recommend.
