All of the food we had was tasty and we left stuffed. Service was great, very attentive and friendly. Food arrived quickly and was as requested. A little bit noisy but not a big deal unless you prefer a quiet setting.

A great assortment of lunch specials $6-10. You can chose from many options-taco's, enchilada's, etc, all great! The chip assortment was fantastic as was the sauce- excellent service.

Dinner out with the family....Food was great. However, the person who delivered our food did not bring our additional requested items, and didn't communicate our needs with our waiter. We eventually got what we needed, but there was a slight bit of tension for the rest of our meal. This has never happened before, and we hope it won't happen... More

When ever we are in Longview or even just traveling through, my wife lives to go to Papacita's. we love their chips and salsa but the Chimichanga is excellent. And you don't have to go with refried beans. Ask for charro beans for something different. We will be back.

Papacita's is a great restaurant. I love their chips with the different spices baked on them. The service was fast and nice even during the busy lunch time. They have been a Longview mainstay for many years and continue to serve great Tex-Mex food. Easy to fine. Across the loop from the mall. We will definitely be back.

The food here was very good, and the atmosphere is very pleasant. Our server George was all business, and not very friendly, but the food made up for it. Good place to eat, and they stay open later then most other places.

My first time to eat at this restaurant. We are here with a large group Friday. We were taken upstairs to be seated so our group could sit together. However when everyone arrived there was not enough room at the tables we had been seated. 6 people from our group had to sit across the room. I can't complain about... More

We visited on a Friday night. The parking lot was full and many families and teenagers were mingling outside but as we entered we were immediately seated. We were surprised how large the facility was once inside. The food was very good and service was fair because it was so busy.

I have enjoyed Papacitas Mexican restaurant for many years, never dissatisfied. Grandchildren love it. Large groups love it...The second floor and large staircase are inviting, as well as the patio. A good place to be.
