As many have said, I am not aware of a better Tex Mex restaurant in Atlanta (although I would also say Uncle Julio's in Dunwoody and near mid-Town is at the same level). If my understanding is still up to date, Pappasito's is part of a truly remarkable group of restaurants in Texas, mostly concentrated in Houston and we have... More

Ecstatic about the great service and diet accommodations. Although few vegetarians dishes are noted on the menu, my server cheerfully offered to provide veggies in my tacos when I requested if black beans and rice could be substituted. She also was knowledgeable on the type of vodkas stocked by the bar which made drink ordering a snap. The establishment was... More

Think you know what great Mexican food tastes like? WE thought we had until we experienced our first day in ATLANTA and visit to PAPPASITOS. This place is a gem and the attention to detail of each meal was superb. What a wonderful find. We arrived just in time before the rush and were served in the most professional and... More

This restaurant was amazing. From the free chips which were as light and airy as if angels made them, to killer frozen margaritas (ask for the mango + strawberry mix!), to the seafood entree, everything was amazing. Terrific service, no wait for our table, nice ambience. Don't miss it!!

We were in town for a wedding and myself and one of the other bridesmaids decided to go to Pappasito's for lunch. The food was absolutely delicious. I had a watermelon margarita which was also wonderful. We sat outside in the patio area-super nice, covered patio. We also had a fabulous waitress. I would definitely recommend.

Good as always! This is the closest you're going to get to TexMex. For all my Texans, you'll know what I mean if you go to another Mexican restaurant here in GA. Everyone serves white queso and red sauce on their enchiladas. Ughhh....

Fun decor, wonderful staff, awesome food and presentation. My fish tacos were the best I have ever eaten. The Mariachi band was entertaining. Best Tex Mex!!!
