I got the mixed fajitas with garlic butter and ate every last bit of my meal. They have great drinks, great food with big portions! Make sure you don't get full on the chips and salsa!!! Also, expect to wait if you get there at dinner rush...we just ate at the bar was a lot faster.

I have been a Pappasito's customer for years. Their food has always been consistent and service fairly good. I have not been to any Pappasito's in more than a year, opting for smaller family restaurant but decided to go today, since I was in the areas. It is always busy at lunch time or dinner time for that matter, which... More

I usually grab a seat at the bar, they will serve you meals and stools are very comfy. It doesn't get any better then their Shrimp Brochette (huge stuff shrimp wrap in bacon, grill... More

The food and drinks here were awesome. Unfortunately, when a place like this is so good it is very crowded. There were a lot of people and it was extremely noisy. Normally noisy places don't bother me, but this one was overly noisy. I rushed to eat my food and bought only one drink just to leave. I would go... More

My family celebrated Valentine's Day here. They had a "special" Plato Amor (Love Plate) that included lobster tails, bacon wrapped stuffed shrimp, chicken fajitas, beef fajitas, rice and beans. It was awesome. We had really good frozen margaritas and chips and salsa. Our waiter, Isaac, made the day special and gave us the best service ever. We'll definitely be going... More

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
