Best value in town. Houston has very bad economy due to oil price war. Restaurant business hits the lowest point. Taking advantage of 1/2 price promotion, we enjoyed dinners very often. Beef fajita was very tender. But avocado dip didn't taste the same as before. Otherwise, it deserves 5 stars.

Can't beat the chips and salsa at Pappasitos! Wednesday night 1/2 price Fajitas are such a wonderful deal. Home made flour tortillas are the best!

One of the best Pappasito's in Houston. You can tell the cooks here take pride in the dishes they service. Great flavor and presentation.

On this this visit during the Sunday rush we received outstanding service from our server, Rebecca. She attentively took our orders and menu changes were correct. She ensured our condiments, drinks, and chips never ran out. And we had surprised guess who Rebecca happily accommodated by bringing in another table. Our food was great as always, the combo platter of... More

Have been going to this place for a lot of years, and travelled back this month. Huge place, not much personal service. Good food and drinks, but lots of it, way too much. My Combination Plate was $20, and my friend's fajitas was $26. With drinks, it cost us over $100 for Houston. FOR MEXICAN FOOD! No good.

Excellent service at the bar. Always seems the best and most experienced staff are there. Margaritas and Nachos are heavenly.

Friendly hostesses greeted us and escorted us to our table. Waiter was a bit aloof and ignored me while taking good care of my daughter. I was never asked what I wanted to drink, and had to ask later for a drink when he took our food order...and it took a long time for him to take our food order.... More

I have repeatedly taken guests to Papasitto's in San Antonio for a predictably great meal, and have twice now been disappointed at the Humble, TX location! The food is never quite the same, is lacking when I would think that the recipes would be used at all locations. The wait staff at the Humble location is inconsistent, and at our... More
