The food is very good. The prices are extremely reasonable. And the entire staff are courteous and make your dining experience one you will want to repeat. If you save room, try a dessert, very tasty choices.

Nice little place with some good food. Give it a try when you want something different. Drinks are tasty as well.

I met a friend for lunch and we ordered the rellenos de papa ( potatoe balls) and to stones (fried green plantains) with chicken. The rellenos were well seasoned and delicious. Now the tostones with chicken, could have been seasoned better. The tostones with pork that I normally get are well seasoned and delicious. The restaurant is always very busy... More

We have been to Papi's a couple of times- First time was for lunch and it was good, seasoned well, fresh and great service!. Second time was for dinner with friends - it was crowded, noisy, and the service was a little hit and miss. We enjoyed the good Cuban Food!

If you have never tried Cuban food, you must give Papi's a try. I have been to the location in Midtown, Atlanta, GA, but I generally go to the location in Lawrenceville, GA, by work. It is a very spacious location with the most incredible food. They generally have some hearty and reasonably priced lunch specials. I love the Cuban... More

Ordered empanadas; dry, barely warm, tasteless; They need to improve a whole lot. Insult to Cuban cuisine It was worth the money. Great wait staff though; I'll give them another chance one day

Not as good as it used to be. Papi sandwich with white sauce is ok. French fries are oily. Took longer than usual for lunch although they were not very busy.

This is a cool spot to grab a drink and some food. I love the cuban hamburger and the french fries are awesome. They offer a good variety of drinks.

We went for dinner one night with two other couples. Having never been there, we were excited to try a place we had heard such good things about. While the overall experience wasn't awful, it wasn't a good one either. It took a very long time to get our food, and when it arrived, it was below average. I should... More
