Found this restaurant online before we traveled to Texas and the reviews were decent. We went there the 1st night we arrived. It was okay. Service was not that great, they forgot about us and took forever to get our drinks. Quality of the food was just average and we ordered fajitas and there was barely no veggies on the... More

Got in late, and got here just before closing. Even though it was late and they were starting to clean up, we were seated and our waiter Edington? I believe, was friendly and attentive. The food was really good and a bonus that it was next door to our hotel.

Food was great! Staff was quick and friendly. Enjoyable atmosphere for family. The chicken fajitas were good! We also enjoyed the fresh made guacamole. Prices are average to high.

We had carryout twice from here while staying at a local hotel. The staff was most helpful in filling our orders and also included many extra items. The food was wonderful and highly recommend this restaurant.

We love going to Pappasito's Cantina and have been to several locations. Whether you go for a traditional meal like Mexico City Chicken Soup, enchilada's or Fajita's or you prefer the premium seafood combinations this restaurant is a winner. We will be back for both.

We invited family for dinner so were a large group of people. The waiting time was long but we found out that it was worth it. We enjoined the food, the service and the overall ambiance. Al in all it was a fun outing and I recommend this restaurant if you feel like Mexican food!

We ended up at Pappasito's during our vacation when we were craving Mexican food. My husband had the watermelon margarita and I had the prickly pear and watermelon margarita. Both were so good, mine tasted stronger and I loved the prickly pear syrup. I had the chipotle tilapia with rice and grilled veggies. My meal was so good, but could... More

I've been going to Pappasito's for many years, starting with the original in Houston. It's never disappointing, although somewhat overpriced IMO. The food is excellent.

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:(
