The meal prepared for us was bacon-wrapped shrimp and fajitas. I know Mexican Food places are a dime-a-dozen but I'd eat here over any place on the river.

EXCELLENT...but prices have gone up so much. I'll pay more, but cannot frequent as much as I used to.

We had dinner at Pappasito's after a friend highly recommended the restaurant. Jonathan was our server and provided awesome service, recommendations and explanations. The Pappasito's Reserva Margarita was awesome, and the food was delicious. I could not find one fault. The decor was great too. Only thing I would say is ensure to get seated in the main area. The...

Been to this place many times, food is great but not the first time that we get a below average service. Every time we have been there we felt that the food plate been shrinking. Overpriced for the size of the portion. A fajita plate for 4-5 people won't feed 3 adults and a child. Make sure you order some... More

Went after a volleyball team with a group of about 20. They got us in quickly and great service. I ordered the red fish with lump of crabmeat on top it was soooo good! Will definitely go back!

Pretty good food with large portions. Very friendly and quick service. Clean. Large menu. However, it was so loud in there it interfered with the enjoyment of the food.

When I am on travel to this city I try to eat at Pappasito's every week. My personal favorite is the tableside guacamole. On every visit I have had a friendly, efficient waiter or waitress that really knows the menu and the items in detail on it as well. This visit I tried the chicken flautas after asking for something... More

After a movie, the family opted for Mexican food. Pappasitos was where we headed to. I shared the Combo with beef/chicken fajitas, shrimp brochettes, rice, beans, and guacamole with a friend. It could not have been better! The seasoning was just right and I can't say enough about the service. There were 6 of us, and our chips baskets, salsa,... More
