It's a nice Mexican restaurant which makes fresh guacamole right at your table. It's the most awesome guacamole I have ever had. The waiter was really nice to specially arrange vegetarian options for me. The enchilada was hugeeee and cheeesy but the rice and beans were quite good ! The mojito was quite nice too

Obviously a popular place with the locals. It was crowded and a bit loud, but the fajita's were delicious with very tender and flavorful meat. The wait staff was very efficient and courteous.

The food and service were excellent. After a long day of travel and shopping we went here to eat. Even though it was crowded, we were seated quickly. We were promptly waited on and out food brought out in a timely manner. The waitress was very attentive. Great visit.

You really can't go wrong with Pappasitos especially if your from out of town. The food is always very good and the portions are large. The have a large menu selection. We have always had good service. As with any Pappas or Pappasitos, it is very loud. So if you want a quiet romantic dinner, go somewhere else.

Mother's Day at 2:00 pm, and we waited for just 20 minutes. Anticipating a long wait, the patio was stocked with free cold water, chips & salsa. Extensive menus with plenty to choose from. I was most impressed by our server Bryce, who was professional, attentive & very cheerful.

The Good: It's affordable on Wednesdays, if you love chicken and/or beef fajitas, because it's good value at half price. One can discern the tenderness of the beef/chicken once it's in your mouth. And once you start having one you can't help but readily fork another piece to follow, one after another :). Guac: has good texture, chunky and not... More

Great food and great atmosphere but the highest price you will ever pay for Mexican food. Always very crowded and usually a wait to get in. I prefer Chavez on Gessner for a lot less money.

I occasionally got work invitation to this place. The food is so great but costed to much. I luckily got paid by my company. That's nice to know that existing quality Mexican restaurant. And don't miss a menu; Chicken, Beef, Filet Mignon or Shrimp Fajitas.

We dine here at least once a month whether we need it or not. The food is very dependable but not cheap! The drinks are OK and pricy. Watch the waiters, we ran up a $154.00 ticket my last trip, I paid with 2 $100 bills, our waiter tried to wait me out delaying bringing my change so I would... More
