Good lunch spot

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.

Always a delicious meal served here! They know how to serve seafood! And of course their Tex Mex is perfect!

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

Huge restaurant, comfortable, great dips for the fresh chips. People were making fresh tortillas off to the side. Seems that all of us (17 or so in the party) were happy with our meals

Excellent fajitas, great service, plenty of parking. Although this establishment has a pretty famous reputation, the food and the experience live up to the hype. Don't miss the guacamole.

The food is great, I absolutely love their Diablo Shrimp and table side guacamole. Can't have them too often since the shrimp is pretty expensive. Staff is always friendly and the restaurant is always clean.

I can't give a 5 rating to any Mexican Restaurant that doesn't offer "AUTHENTIC MEXICAN" food, having been born and raised in Los Angeles. But, this is a very nice option. When in Texas, do as Texans do, right?
