Good things come to those who wait

The fajitas were delicious. Be prepared to wait for seating on the weekends as it's a very popular place to dine.

I stop here on every visit. Cannot say enough about the quality and consistency of the food- delicious! There's usually a bit of a wait, but worth it! The steak fajitas are my fav.

The table side guacamole is the first reason we come here ... Great place to meet friends or have a family night out ... the chicken tamales and shrimp diablo are fantastic. As far as the enchiladas ... not my favorite; they use a red sauce that is bitter. Great drink selections!!

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!

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.

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
