I was visiting family in McGregor for the second time this year and insisted that we return to Papi Taco for breakfast on this visit. The place is very small with only about 5 tables and limited staff, so service depends on how many carry out orders come in and how many are at the tables. There is really no... More

My husband and I didn't have the kids with us, and we decided to scout out a hole in the wall, locally owned restaurant. We drove by Papi Taco and knew we would have an adventure. This restaurant is small-very-and not decorated like any page from Pinterest, but we found it charming. We were there about 11:30 which is good... More

Eating at Papi's Taco takes awhile. This small restaurant was reported to have very good food so we stopped there. My husband ordered a hamburger and I ordered Chicken Fajitas, and both were good, but it took almost 45 minutes to get our food after it was ordered. We had to get someone to refill our water glasses and wait... More

We enjoy the scratch cooked fresh ingredient Mexican food. We tried the highly rated burgers and fresh-cut fries! Delicioso! .... We will be back to share a combo plate AND a burger! Really good food!

Tiny little face house with great food. We had tacos, burrito, chiliquilles. And migas. All were good. Don't understand comments about service. Ours was good and they were friendly.

This little mom-and-pop place has some of the best fajitas I've had. The staff that day was very friendly and accommodating. The facilities are definitely nothing to brag about but that's not what you're looking for in a place like this. If what you're looking for is fantastic authentic Tex-Mex made by some fantastic authentic Tex-Mexicans, then this is your... More

Great little place on Highway 317 with authentic, made from scratch Mexican food. Good burgers and fries with a Mexican cheeseburger with pico, guacamole and jalapeños. Nice and greasy bun toasted on both sides just like the small town drive inn joints of years gone by :)

Ok you would never think that this dive Mecican food joint would have great burgers but it does. This place has one of the best burgers I have ever eaten and I eat a lot of burgers. Kinda out of the way but very worth it.
