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

We ate here in between baseball games during a tournament and were not disappointed. Had about 12 in our group and the food and service were excellent! Several recommend for us to eat here and I will now recommend it as well!

I visited here with high hopes with my son. Our waiter seemed extremely frazzled the entire time we were there. At one point he came to our table with hot sauce in his beard and on his face from trying to stir the hot sauce that was being made. We split the fajitas and personally we did not like them... More

The food is getting bad. It was never this bad in the past. It seems to taste all the same. Only thing that has stayed the same is the tortillas. If you come to Longview and you want REAL Mexican or Tex-Mex go to Little Mexico or El Sombrero. Oh their cheeseburgers are good.

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
