I have been to papa gallos several times and have enjoyed the food and drinks very much. I like the house Margherita and the chips and salsa. Decent wine selection too. Sitting outside in the summer is lovely.

We went the day after the latest major snow storm. Light crowd on a Wednesday night, all due to the weather. We started with half off house margaritas and steak nachos. The margaritas were wonderful and the nachos a hit, with tender meat, crisp veggies,...More

My wife and I love hitting this place... super friendly waitstaff, fast service and yet not rushed... We tend to go there at lunch for the $9.95 lunch special (lots of choices to pick and a drink). I get the diablo burrito. Spicy, yet not...More

Wish we had checked Trip Advisor before our visit. Like others mentioned, most Mexican restaurants have free chips and salsa. Their chips and salsa are a $4.99 appetizer. I ordered an ice tea for $2.50 and received a small bar glass (maybe 8 oz) with...More

We love southwestern food but this is not a place to get it. The meal was OK, but we found it expensive for what you get. It was also noisy in a bit crowded; did not like the atmosphere.
