“Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

The second time we eat here during our vacation. There was no wait and they were able to accommodate our large group. The food is very good and the servings are large. Expect to pay a lot for the food, but it is well worth it. Will definitely return.

“not authentic”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

after having worked in LA for several months I was craving cajun food. Thought maybe Pappadeaux's would satisfy the craving. Boy, was it ever disappointing. It was bland, chain restaurant food that was overpriced.

“Happy Hour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

I always have a great time when I go to happy hour. They have good margarita's and the best oysters on the half shell. Friendly bar tenders!

“A Tasty Chain”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Make no mistake, Pappadeaux is a chain. However, so far as seafood in the desert landscape of New Mexico goes- it is pretty darn good. There are some unique entrees, and oysters are never in short supply. As other reviewers have mentioned, it can be a little pricey- but not more than you would really expect for seafood. Also, there are some great deals during happy hour. This is a very good after work spot.
