Great food, great atmosphere

This place serves great Mexican inspired dishes. The chips are made in house and are perfect. I had the grilled quail and the honey glaze was amazing. In the past I have had steaks that were cooked to a perfect medium rare. I have never had a bad meal at this place.

There was about seven or eight of us that dined. My daughter and her boyfriend had come in for the holidays from Seattle. The food was excellent and the wait staff was great. We totally enjoyed the experience.

The fajitas are always perfect (after 25+ years of going there) and honestly, that is all we usually ever order. Their service has improved over the last few months - something that was needed. Much cheaper to eat at lunch than dinner or carryout.

I love pappasito's. We used to go to the original one in the 80's and I never miss it when in Houston. But.....it is losing the greatness it used o have. Too loud. Food all too spicey. You have to ask for it to be less hot rather than add additional spices to dishes. In fact, it is just like... More

I have only been here once, however I loved it. We had a very large tabel, with lots of special requests and the staff was ready willing and able. Clean tables, great beer selection and fun liquor selection. Next time I am in own I will be back.

Went to this restaurant with my friends whole on a visit to the area. The parking lot was packed, but the restaurant was HUGE and had lots of space to eat. We were greeted by a nice young lady and seated quickly, near the tortilla machine, which was neat. Our server Daniel was prompt and polite asking what we wanted... More

The Pappas chain never disappoints and this location is no exception. The food is great, the portions are huge, and the service was good. The price was higher than most other comparable places in Sugar Land, but the food is worth it. The only bad part about the experience was that the bar is not isolated from the dining area.... More

Pappasito's is always great. We've been going to Pappasito's for over 25 years. Don't go as often as we used to because we're more careful about calories these days but, it's always a treat to go and enjoy some good TexMex food at Pappasito's.
