We enjoy Pappasitos! The food is always good. My favorite is the Plato Del Mar with the beef fajitas. The portion is large and enough for two. The margaritas are refreshing. The only drawback is the noise. When crowded expect to wait but they do their best to get you seated quickly. Whether young or old the experience is good!

Went there on a Friday night. Packed as usual, but that is expected. Wait wasn't that long. Our group was seated soon enough. Our waitress was friendly and knowledgeable. Everybody enjoyed the food, and the atmosphere was great. I always look forward to coming here. My 2 knocks (if you can call them that) are that bottled Coronas are $5.50... More

I'm sure if we had been any other day, we'd have had better service. We finally moved from our table to the bar and even then had to wait for service. I had crab cake stuffed shrimp. WHOA! I'd order this every time for the rest of my life. So yummy. Just busy, and busy servers.

The waitress we had was real nice and friendly. I sent her to the bar bar many times to check on beers and drinks! We ordered a grilled salmon and bbq ribs. The food was great. I was somehow not too impressed with the salsa. The guacamole was good, but how hard is it to make fresh guac? The beers... More

Hostess very professional. Our waiter, Nick, was very attentive & engaging. Sopapillas are tiny puffs of Heaven. Large platter of enchiladas.

The queso, chips and salsa rival the best! Try the fajitas or the bacon wrapped shrimp. The atmosphere and decor is bit upscale in comparison to other restaurants and the wait staff will always take good care of the diners.

I love the grilled quail, fresh guacamole, and grilled shrimp! Great place for family gatherings. There is live music on weekends and the bar is a good place to watch football and baseball games!

Had a group of 8 and had a great time with good food and authentic taste and flavor. Fresh made in the house tortilla chips with a good salsa to dip them in. All entrees were good with plenty to satisfy the biggest appetite. Although we did not have any the desserts looked amazing as we saw some going by... More

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.

Thank Logan P
