This restaurant rocked! I was recently in Houston for business and Pappasito's was next door to the hotel. I didn't feel like battling traffic so picked something close. I am so glad I did! I ate there 3 nights in a row. The menu is massive and and margaritas rock!

Pappasito;s always has great food. Usually has too much food per serving dish.Service is quite good, responsive to your needs. Usually go to Pappasito's about every 1-2 months when we have the need to great mexican food.

My wife and I along with another couple had dinner at this restaurant last week. As stated the food was good and the portions were large. It was served hot and our waiter was very good at making sure that our drinks were filled. It was a pleasant dinning experience and I am sure that I will dine here or... More

The prices are extremely high and it's always packed with a semi-long wait, but the food is always fresh and absolutely delicious. Service is friendly and atmosphere is cool. Loved this place and continue to do so.

When you think Mexican food is too heavy, think again about Pappasito's. I tried their lunch menu salad with seafood and I was the envy of the lunch table. That moment when everyone ask, "What did you order? That looks yummy!". UMMM yummy. Sliced avocados and good size shrimp(not the cheap little ones) along with a variety of dressings ranging... More

Being Latin, I don't usually order tamales at Mexican restaurants to avoid disappointment but on a friend's recommendation, I tried them at Pappasito's. OMG, I have been hooked on their tamales since. it's the only item I ever order at Pappasito's. They are full of meat & both types of tamales. & salsas are excellent. 3 tamales are very filling.

The Fajitas are always great here, and the Swirl Margaritas are fantastic. The best salsa and chips around.

The steak arrived cool, not hot. Wine list was very extensive but priced at 3 times retail. Service was good and decor was good.

Pappasito's is one of those friendly restaurants, where you can be relaxed and enjoy the atmosphere, as well as the delicious food choices. One of my favorites is the bee fajitas with the cheese, peppers and onions topping. It is one of those favorite spots in the area that always has a crowd and if you're interested in Happy Hour,...

Pappasitos in SL has so many wonderful meals to choose. The only reason it does not get a 5 is because it is always to noisey to hear the people at your table.
