Fabulous Mexican Food

Pappasito's is one of the best Mexican food restaurants in Houston. All of their food is excellent so it is hard to say which dish is the best to order.

Ninfa's may have my favorite chili con queso, but Pappasito's has the BEST margarita's! Don't misunderstand, Pappasito's chili con queso is excellent and probably my second favorite in Houston; fresh veggies just make it perfect. But the margarita's just cannot be beat! We enjoy everything we have had here, the food is always cooked perfectly; the fish being our favorite.... More

Granted it was 8:30 on Sunday night when we joined family members for dinner. Our first round of drinks were delivered in a reasonable amount of time. However, it was necessary to remind the wait staff that the second round had not been delivered after 15 minutes. One person in the party of 5 required a return by the waitress... More

My husband and I ate lunch here on the way to Space Center Houston. We were treated like old friends from the moment we walked in. This was our first time so the waitress brought us free dip and explained the menu to us before we ordered. The manger stopped by to check on us, saw we were ready to... More

The Pre dinner drinks get you in the mood for the meal to come and the wait is never to long and well worth it. The Fillet Minion Fajitas and Crab stuffed Shrimp are the meal of choice and more tender then you would imagine the fresh Shrimp with Crab stuffing and the Garlic butter for dipping complete a dish...

I had reason to visit on two consecutive weeknights (don't ask), saw them slammed and saw them slow. In each case the food for a large group came promptly, and hot. Seafood is generally of high quality, though the crabcake wasn't up to snuff.

We ordered the Ceviche, which was featured, as an appetizer to share.This was very tasty, though they skimp on the crab. It went down hill from here. I ordered the flautas, which I thought were hard to mess up.It was a long wait with no refills, until our main course arrived. The flavor was there, but they must of sat... More
