Pappasitos is the very best Mexican food! Wonderful menu choices. Superb service. Go early or you will wait. I love a place where the manager will stop at your table to check that everything is to your expectation. Shrimp diablo a MUST!!

This place was really busy on Sunday night so I thought it would be very good.. I was very disappointed I have to say.. The atmosphere was nice but that was about all. Fish tacos were extremely dry. Chips were greasy and the service was not good. They got our order wrong. I won't be going back. Thumbs down:(

I was greeted warmly as I pulled up to the bar. The service was friendly and attentive. They kept the chips and salsa coming. The bowl of Tortilla Soup with chicken and avocado was delicious and a generous serving. The Seafood Enchilada had great flavor, but it proved to be too much food! There was an extensive list of Margarita... More

My favorite Tex-mex restaurant in Texas. Quest Blanco is simply devine. Their seafood specials are top-notch. If you stop in, be sure to have the bacon wrapped, jalapeño & cheese stuffed shrimp; those are not to be missed!!

Love the chicken tamales. Salsa is great. Large restaurant so you usually don't need to wait. My husband likes the fajitas.

I love Mexican restaurants, so it's hard for me to taint this with some negativity, but I must. The food itself was good, but our interactions with staff were lacking. I'll be specific: 1. I was part of a group of seven who ate here on a Saturday night. We arrived early, so there were only a few people waiting... More

I forgot the name of it but it had shrimp and avocados in it. It was an appetizer. I wasn't very hungry so I had it for dinner and it was excellent. My daughter had fish over rice with a creamy sauce. Excellent service.

Crazy expensive with watered down drinks. Good environment, but prices were crazy. We sat at bar, and water was polite and clean. We got a lunch menu. Nothing was cheaper than $13.
