Stopped by for lunch and had a nice meal as we normally do when we eat here. The chips and salsa are hot and fresh and the entrée came quick and hot. The tacos are good and the chili relleno was fresh and well prepared. We enjoy stopping here when we're in the area.

Quit, friendly service. The seating was comfortable, the atmosphere engaging. I wish there was one in my hometown, I'd eat there a couple of times a week.

Our young family and friends love this place. Large portions, great food. We have had chimichangas, Seafood dishes, huevos dishes, quesadillas. Our favorite is their fresh salsa, which has some heat and is always fresh. Service is attentive and quick. Appeals to a variety of tastes.

We were staying at a local hotel and asked the hotel staff to recommend a "good" Mexican restaurant. Sooooo, we headed to Don Papa Grande's. Typical Mexican fare and ambiance. We ordered the "Dinner for Two", which featured four or five different entree's plus re-fried beans and rice and a dollop of guac. The food was bland and tasteless. Sufficient... More
