We are kind of regulars here. The wait staff always remembers us. Tbe food is good and it is a great place to bring kids. The menu also has a children's menu. They will sing for you and always greet you with a smile.

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.

My sister and I eat lunch here one day each week, our week is not complete until we do, It is the people who make the place. The food is good but it is the willingness to go the extra mile. I have food allergies and they allow me to substitute a particular item. We always eat the same thing,... More

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.

No flavor and shrimp were like rubber. Oh, and the salad dressing came from a packet. Side taco also no flavor with a totally dry finely ground... More

Didn't know a Blue Moon went so great with lunch. Great atmosphere, nice appeal, salsa was about 8 star, cheese dip was not as flavorful but didn't taste like mayo either. Four pages of menu selections. This would definitely be a go to in the area. I'm certain there is an meal in this restaurant that not only is a... More
