Loved this place, great atmosphere, food was great, service was awesome. The only draw back about this location is that it is very loud and noisy. Could barely have a conversation and they has a mariachi walking around singing and you couldn't hear him unless he was sitting on your lap. Still a good place with good food.

This is a great Tex Mex restaurant. I love the fish tacos (fried). When I first moved to Texas, they gifted me a free dessert and introduced me to the gem that tres leches cake! The servers are friendly, and the bar area always seems to be hopping (but not in an obnoxious or loud manner.) It has a fun... More

While on a layover at the Houston, TX airport, a local resident recommended Pappasito's for a meal..The Cantina is located in a food court that was quite large & thankfully had plenty of seating. Our service was helpful, friendly & fairly fast. The prices are reasonable for the size of the portions, and best of all,the food was delicious. Should... More

Corn chips were okay had a weird soapy smell to them. But service was good and thr food was fresh. The salsa was weird too I dont know what was up with it but it had a funny taste like the chips.

One common thread among all the Pappas restaurants is the use of fresh food and good service. The atmosphere is relaxing and casual. Tables are available on the deck/patio. Expect a wait time to get a table on Friday and Saturday nights. If you have trouble getting into the lot go to Cutten Road and come into the parking lot... More

Great food and great services. Service is a little slow when they are very lack but not too much of a problem. We always sit at the bar if the restaurant is pack. The bar service is alway better in my opinion. The food is always excellent. The customer service is great and if there's a mistake, the manager always... More

So we came here and ate and its amazing the best part is that they come to your table and make the guacamole from scratch it was simple amazing. The tortillas are made in front of you so everything is home made.

I had a nice experience here for lunch. The restaurant can hold a lot of diners, was clean and has an enjoyable atmosphere. Our server was pleasant and attentive. The food portions were large. The prices were reasonable. I enjoy this type of Mexican food so will return when in the area. Worth a visit.
