Amazing Food

Enjoyed great food . The portions are large and a must share size. I have allergies and the chef came and modified my meal choices. I highly recommend this place. The only reason it's only getting 4 stars is because our server was very slow.

The (free) chips and salsa were awesome, and our food and drinks both came out very quickly. The staff was very welcoming and attentive. I highly recommend the watermelon margarita and the beef/chicken fajitas. The meat was cooked very well, and the sides were fabulous. We will definitely return!

There's nothing not to love about this place. It's been a hit every time I have been there with friends or family. Love the service, love the selection of food, the great happy hour drinks, the fajitas, the shrimp, and the atmosphere. The price is also right. Just be warned, they can get busy...but that's a good sign.

Went for lunch, was good food, reasonably priced. Service was really good, and they got us seated and served and out the door in under an hour. Will return again!

I am not to thrill about this Restaurant, I was happy with the service but not the food. Not a lot of flavor in the food and yet maybe to much of a flavor in some that does not quite have the spanish taste.

This was our first visit to Pappasito's. We had heard good things about the chain so wanted to give it a try. Just off I10 so very easy access. They didn't do reservation but we called ahead to get on the wait list. Good thing! the wait time for dinner was 50 minutes!. VERY NOISY but the food was excellent... More

We enjoyed our visit. The food was tasty and the service was good. The only reason I didn't rate it a five is because it was pricier than expected. Overall, good experience.

We've always enjoyed Pappasito's (and all of the Pappas' restaurants, for that matter), but this visit left us disappointed. The basic margaritas were great. We got the larger size (I chose to have 'The Great Divide' - half strawberry and half lime) and they were perfect. We came because we wanted some really good fajitas. We got the medium size... More
