Wed rive nearly 90 mile when we want TexMex. Pappasito's is our favorite by far. Great flavor, consistent & clean. It is a little pricey but portions are large & we never leave hungry.

All the food was good but that taco was delicious. Large, slim, crunchy, flavorful shell. It almost put the meat and toppings to shame. Staff was very helpful, we were a large group of 21 and they got us all taken care of in a timely manner

In short, the best tex-mex I've discovered in the Houston area, and I am a well traveled taster:) Their chips have a strange coating and the salsa an unusual aftertaste, yet the fajitas are descent (both chicken and steak)..... It was my understanding that the fajitas are what they're famed for, so that's what we tried. I personally, preferred the... More

We stopped in for "Happy Hour" today(Friday) and had a very good time. The place was packed and getting more so. It was about 6:00pm. We were seated promptly. The waitress, once she realized we were there, was very prompt and attentive. We had a couple Grande Margaritas, some grilled shrimp tacos and chips and salsa. All were very good.... More

First restaurant I went to when I came down to Texas and I was not disappointed. The tableside guacamole was incredible and I've never seen it before either. The staff was very helpful and quick and the fajitas were delicious. It is a bit expensive but definitely worth it. Probably will go again when my family comes down. It was... More

We went here for a birthday celebration and couldn't have had a better experience. The wait staff was friendly and attentive, the appetizer tortilla chips were hot, and the salsa fresh with a nice cilantro tang to it. My husband and I shared the chicken and beef fajita plate, and it was delicious. Ample quantities for both of us and... More

I ordered carry out Quesadillas from Pappasitos. They were $ 17.00 for 2 tortillas with some chicken and cheese in the middle. The meat was really tough. I have been going to this restaurant for 22 years. The prices keep increasing which makes it less and less affordable. Do yourself a favor and go down the road to Jimmy Changas.... More

Was looking for a Mexican food place and Pappasito's was recommended. Well worth the drive, lots of parking and the place was fun and lively, packed with people enjoying themselves. Wasn't too hungry after eating BBQ for lunch, so just went with the beef fajita appy and a couple of handcrafted drinks recommended by the bartender, spot on! Big bowl... More
