Usual Pappasito's, but in a retro garage type location. Waitstaff were very accommodating and efficient. Had the queso, steak fajitas, quesadillas and an enchilada plate. All were well portioned, hot and tasty. A definite good lunch and would return.

Planning a 65th birthday party for my husband in about two weeks on Sunday, June 25th. About 25 to 30 people. Do you have a private room that would be available and large enough?

Little Zito's do not have private rooms. If you are looking for Mexican restaurant go across the road to Pico's. They have a nice private room and excellent food and drink.
