This place used to be really good but last time I went food was cold. Took forever to get an it was empty. Won't be going back there's a lot of other Mexican food restaurants in town that are better.

This restaurant used to be our families favorite, but as time has gone on, the quality had gone down. The service is always good!

Service was good, food was average for a Mexican restaurant, prices average, overall a decent restaurant but not something special.. They do have a full bar which is a plus for me. Would return.

I found the food to be average. The biggest distraction is the "ambience" of the place. It's a large room and sound almost echoes around. The bar area is much better in appearance than the main restaurant.

Papcito's is a gold restaurant overall. The food is always good and satisfying. Most people like to sit in the cantina. They have tv's so you can watch your favorite sports program ( mainly baseball and football :) ). They accommodate large groups if you call ahead. The service has always been good, staff is friendly. Love the margaritas. Very... More

It's a cool little authentic Mexican food place with great margaritas, tasty chips and salsa and pleasant service. We had a early lunch and had a variety of tacos. Many t.v.s of varying quality. You can tell the cable has been spliced as the signal degenerates. What do you expect? I'm ok with it. We never sit in the dining... More

I like the meals here, and the pricing is typical and worth having freshly prepared meals compared to fast food. While Papacito's isn't my all time favorite, it is one of the better Mexican restraunts in town.
