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

As an initial disclaimer, I must admit that I have been spoiled by the abundance of excellent affordable Mexican food in Houston and that may color my review. Having passed this place a number of times, we decided to pop in for lunch. The first thing that struck me was that the apps were expensive ($8 for a small queso... More

Went here on the recommendation of a local. Great Tex mex food. Fajitas are clearly their specialty but neither of us were in the mood for them. I had the spinach enchiladas with grilled shrimp and chipotle cream sauce. They were amazing! Having finished a cruise a month ago I was concerned about having shrimp from somewhere other than the...

We had dinner here on a Saturday night and waited 45 minutes for a table; well worth the wait. The food was really good and once seated, service was prompt. We had the fish tacos, mixed fajitas and seafood enchiladas. Way too much food; wish they'd offer half servings! Margaritas are good and we enjoyed the excellent chips/salsa. The level... More
