This place is hugely popular and tends to get crowded quite easily, especially on weekends. But the food is worth the wait. It is also good value for money. They have friendly staff who are prompt with service. They provide recreation for little kids too,

Pappasito's portions are always large so plan on sharing or some take home. The food is always good and service excellent. Never been close to being disappointed there.

If you're interested in lots of good Tex-Mex food, this is the place. The restaurant is huge, but so are the crowds, so don't be surprised to wait a few minutes if you come at the busy time. I've never had anything bad there. Their servings are huge, way too much for a normal person. Don't do what I do... More

It has great Mexican food and plenty of it for a good price. The atmosphere is great. It can get a little noisey because it is usually crowded. You will have to try the fried ice cream and it is enough for two or three people. It is excellent. One can't go wrong with the menu. There is outdoor, covered... More

Love just about any Pappas restaurant's food and the Sugar Land location is no exception. They do food well, and used to do service really well also. Through the last several years I have seen the service trending down to the point where there are other Tex Mex establishments where the service is what Pappasito's used to be. Only go... More

Papasito's in Sugar Land seems to always have bustling crowds and lots of folks having a good time. You would think it were perpetually the holiday season. Actually, people just like their food. Everything they make is better than the same dish at every other Mexican restaurant. But do not go to Papasito's if you are in a hurry. You... More

Food quality is always consistently good, but a little pricy. Not the place for a quiet conversation. Fun place for fajitas.

Pappasito's is one of our all time favorites. The food continues to be very good - ample servings. The quality of the food is always very good. The only "complaint" is the cost - the cost over the years has continued to go up - sometimes greater than inflation??

There are lots of great "hole in the wall" Mexican restaurants in Houston/Sugar Land, but I keep coming back to Pappasitos because it is soooo good. The shrimp brochette are incredible. The pork ribs are better. The margeritas are perfect. Pappas restaurants follow a predictable formula ... but when the formula is good ... why change it !
