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

Papacita's is a locally owned and NOT A CHAIN Mexican restaurant. They are known for their seasoned chips and salsa. We have ate here more times than I can count. Food is good not exotic, but good. They have a great meeting room to have parties in too.

Great value, tortillas are good, fajitas were just okay with limited seasoning. Menu states "ask server about our wide selection of tequila", they have 2, Cuervo and 1800. Servers all seem young and very inexperienced, however friendly and respectful. Just okay, doubt I'll return, unless I want cheap mediocre tequila.

Nice ambiance as usual, very clean and above average wait staff. The menu has never changed since I've been coming here beginning in 1999. Its always been a consistently average Tex Mex restaurant. My favorite item is the Quail Cordoniz.

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
