This was our first time to eat at a Pappasito's and we were highly impressed. Even though we went at 6pm on a Friday night we had no wait time because it's a HUGE restaurant. They had live musicians, and the food was fantastic. I had the grilled fish tacos which were excellent. Will definitely be eating here again if... More

Having just moved to the area, I was just looking for places to try. I did a search to find good chhese dip in the area, and this place came up on a few lists. I really enjoy eating some of the Pappas restaurants, so I expected it to be pretty good. We arrived and were quickly seated and had... More

We love Pappasito's and always have great service and usually great food. We had a large group of about 15 and all ordered a variety. Two of us went with the fish taco and enchilada combination. I noticed immediately that the fish taco had a strong and pungent odor of fish and opted to give it a try. Much to... More

While I'm a Pappas fan, I don't come here too often because of all the great authentic Mexican Food you can get in San Antone. However, my hubby and I are big fans of the Seafood Enchiladas. We came to celebrate family and two birthdays on the Saturday night after Thanksgiving. Everything was great! Half of us had the Seafood... More

Overall, the menu is typical of most chains in San Antonio. There is a variety of dishes in Mexican American traditions. Really nothing outstanding.

Brought my son here to celebrate his 12th birthday. We both have been a fan of Pappasito's for awhile. Our server, Nelson did a great job making my son's birthday special. The serves was good and the food was excellent but there seemed to be a problem in the kitchen. Our waiter and the management came out and apologized for... More

Excellent service in this atmospheric restaurant. We had not made a reservation for what was a very busy night but we're seated within twenty minutes. The speciality of Filet Mignon fajitas was to die for and the margueritas top class. Just remember to book in advance!

Decided to go to Pappasito's after reading all the good reviews. Really was looking forward to dine on a delicious steak fajita on my birthday. Well, here is what my husband and I got served: The server brought our food within a minute (literally one minute after we placed our order!). Now thinking back, was this someone else's leftover?? HOPE... More

We had lunch here on 26 oct for 7 people and a newborn. We had to wait for maybe 30 mins for a table. The food was awesome and the staff was great. We will probably return the next time we visit S.A.
