“Lost it's touch”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

WE have been going to this resturant since it was openend. But it has been a few years since we have visited this place because it is quite busy. They did have the best sausa and the greatest fajita's. Well, we decided to visit this place this evening and we were completly disappointed. The Tex-Mex flair taste of the food has disappeared. The salsa is now watered down, the chips are fresh and so are the tortillas. The fajita's were tasteless, the chicken was dry, the chili con queso was also tastless and the cost has skyrocketed. There are many other fine Tex-Mex restaurants in the area that serve great food. This site has gone south.
The wait staff was okay and the margaritas were -well - Texas style - drinkable.

This place is simply great. Nachos are done in front of all the guests, mariachi playing some nice music, always full house and margarita unbeatable!

“Papasitos - The Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

I crave Pappasito's. Their food is sooo good you will dream of it. Fresh delicious tortillas made right before you eat them. Absolutely everything is perfect and delicious. Indescribable. The quality is tops.

“OK Tex-Mex”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

The menu was heavy on seafood dishes for a Tex-Mex place. The place was busy for a Friday night but we went early and got right in. The tables are quite crammed together so it feels a bit crowded even when there are empty tables.
