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?

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
