Chips and Salsa are the best!!

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.

Huge restaurant. Bet they do a great job with large parties. My friend and I walked around and ended up in the kitchen. Was surprised that it was very clean. Reminded me of the Gallo on the cruise ships. Food was just alright. I would try else where next time. Bartender was very friendly and did a great job. Beer... More

My relatives took me out to this restaurant when I was visiting in the autumn, 2014. It was quite busy on that Friday night, but the staff were fairly prompt in taking our orders and getting the food out to us. All three of us were pleased with the quality of the food. I would definitely want to go there... More

Can't think of one complaint for this place. I was immediately greeted with a smile upon entering. Chips, Salsa, and Tortillas immediately served. Drink order taken before I could blink. I ordered the Steak Fajita Burrito $7.99 had a fair serving of tender steak inside. Not too spicy not too bland just right for me. If you like spice you... More

Almost always enjoy Papacitas! Probably our favorite chips of Tex-Mex spots we frequent. Started with a bowl of queso, and drained the bowl! We all had enchiladas - cheese and chicken. Very good taste, though the amount of cheese inside was a little skimpy. Mucho meat in the chicken enchiladas. Not my top pick in Longview (more freebies at Posados... More

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.
