Wow - what a combination. Delicious authentic Mexican food, served by a French man in San Fran. On our first night in the city and staying with friends, we stopped in at Papito with friends who live locally. They spoke highly of this place and it did not disappoint. We could not have wished for a better meal. Portion sizes... More

We visited Papitos on our first night in the area so were a little tired. The great service and food certainly perked us up...or maybe that was down to the nice big margarita on arrival! The food was really good...the usual Mexican fare but really well done. Service was fantastic...very attentive. We would certainly recommend the place.

Wife, friend and myself ate here on the advice on the friend who is from San Francisco. Between the three of us I think we had each of the tacos available and also ordered the guacamole and chips. First off, the guacamole was very good as a large bowl was empty by the time we had finished our meal. I... More

Great, small, hole-in-the-wall type of place with great food. The service was excellent and the quesadilla was arguably the best I've ever had.

What a great spot! EXCELLENT eats. Mexican food with a really nice twist - fresh and delicious. Stopped in for lunch and sampled 2 kinds of Quesadillas: Pollo Empanizado and Carne Asada. The chicken version had a great purple cabbage slaw inside - really great! Excellent portion sizes and great flavors! Definitely look forward to coming back here to sample... More

The guacamole & chips are incredible! The grilled shrimp tacos were so delicious! The presentation was incredible too! We got our order to go and the service was great! He was very pleasant and funny! We also got the churros and they were soooo good! I definitely recommend Papito, especially for takeout!

The food here is well done, quick and delicious. Delicious guacamole with pepper sauce, not too hot. The burrito is defnitely big enough for two, and they will happily adjust servings to suit the size of your party if you have an odd number

Stopped in on a Wednesday evening, despite the small space we were seated quickly. Two of us ordered tacos and two ordered burritos. The burritos were fantastic, one of the best I've had. The tacos were very good as well but lacked substance in places, the shrimp taco had only two shrimp. Service was courteous but spotty. Overall our bill... More
