“Good food, quick service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Papi's is in a little strip mall near Chastain Road and Busby Parkway. We both had the Friday special--shredded beef, salad, black beans, rice, and fried plantains for $8.99. It was very good, and more than enough to fill us up. The waitress was very friendly and patiently explained the menu to us. A very good dining experience.

“Just OK!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

Tasted Cuban sandwiches at other Cuban restaurants and was not impressed. These are a little better. Therefore, I came back a couple more times (1st time was 2009). However, I'm still looking for other Cuban restaurants to check out. Can't seem to find one that reminds me of Cuban food in my hometown of Miami. Service can be a little bit better.

After last trip in November 2012, will not go back. Food is still just OK and service did NOT get any better. I must find a better Cuban restaurant.

“Wonderful & Authentic Cuban Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

Great food! I love to visit this location and the one in Midtown. This is a great place to try food that is not Mexican. I am not saying that to be mean, but the flavors are much different. I say this in the best possible way. The beans and rice are to die for as are the maduros.

“Best Cuban food this side of Miami!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Papi's is in a little strip shop near Chastain Road and Busby Parkway, hidden in the corner with both inside and outside patio dining. It's looks and feels like you're in Key West or the Caribbean,No hype - just wonderful authentic Cuban and Caribbean food. Cuban Sandwiches, inexpensive meals, good bar, great flan for dessert (regular caramel and coconut flan...) Guava pastillitos if you get there early enough. Good Cuban coffee. Best appetizer is the Puerto Rican Mufungo. Grilled mashed plantains with garlic and crispy bits of browned deliciousness in a perfectly formed cake. Try the daily specials - or get my favorite - grilled chicken breast smothered in onions, with black beans and rice, perfect golden sweet plantains (maduros) and a delicious simple salad. Save room for the flan. We've eaten there a few times, and will eat there again (even though it's a long drive from our home...) Excellent attentive but not obtrusive service. Friday and Saturday nights, they have live music.
