Always Good

Ate dinner and had drinks. What is there not to like about the restaurant. Frozen Top Self Frozen margaritas are excellent. Staff always attentive and helpful. Shrimp Brochette is my favorite and which I highly recommend. Good service and great food. Go here when in Pharr!

Since this restraint is a bit pricey for me I usually only go on special occasions - and they make it really special. My favorite is the seafood Cobb salad. They have wonderful warm bread and great desserts!

3 Couples of us went to there to celebrate a friend's birthday. We were impressed with the place from the moment we sat down. Nate, our waiter, was outstanding, and the food matched the wonderful service. Everyone had something different and everyone was impressed with their food. I had Cajun crawfish etouffee and a tomato salad and they were both... More

2nd visit for us this winter, but not the last...we'll be back again. Alligator was the most tender and best I've had anywhere. Crawfish & shrimp fondeaux is awesome. Scallops are perfectly cooked and seasoned! Gumbo is incredible! Not much more expensive than Red Lobster, but so much tastier. It's a lot of fun to watch the bartender ballet, the... More

I've been to this particular Pappadeaux several times, tried most of their menu, and drank some drinks... I've never had anything but the quality I hoped for, in food and service. It's not cheap, but why would you think it would be? It's among the best places in the RGV for almost any occasion. Go when the weather is nice... More

Like every other Pappa's restaurant that I have patronized, this one is no different. It was bustling and noisy, but the food was delicious. We asked to be seated in the bar area away from the noisy main dining room. The fried oysters were perfect! They were lighted coated with the right amount of seasoning. The Ginger Salmon didn't disappoint... More

I love this restaurant. I currently live in El Paso where there are no good seafood places. I was in McAllen for a family funeral when I came across this wonderful place. The service was fast, and the food came HOT and quickly. Parking was great and no wait for a table. If your feeling like having seafood, this is... More

There is no place on earth better the this restaurant if you want to enjoy the best sea food in Mcallen Tx. It might be pricey but you will not regret the flavor and selection on their menu.
