Been there twice and it won't be the last. Food was good and Service was exceptional. Both visits service staff was really involved with our table and conversations.

The service and food is consistently excellent! My favorite is the cold boiled shrim with a side of a baked potato.

This is a very good seafood restaurant. You can even find a good steak in case you don't like something out of the water...... Their lobster bisque is the best we have ever had compared to many more seafood and steak restaurants. The place is a little noisy but tolerable. They offer outdoor seating but it's pretty hot and humid... More

I have been to other Pappadeauxs, and have been a fan for a while. It is a "cajun" style restaurant. Of course they have taken some liberties with that style. They have seafood, and pastas. If is always busy, usually a 20 minute or so wait for dinner. It is definitely worth the wait. I love the fried shrimp. My... More

What can I say, Pappadeaux is one of my favorite restaurants. If there's one in the city I'm visiting, I'm there. While not always perfect, they've always fixed the few minor issues I've had quickly and professionally. If anyone makes better blackened catfish, anywhere, I don't know about it. This particular location in Pharr/McAllen is a very nice location, great... More

The menu is very extensive so this is a seafood lovers paradise. Lobster bisque, crawfish, king crab, array of fish!! The crab fingers were so easy to eat compared to cracking full legs. Huge restaurant with an outdoor seating area with a fountain. Very nice place with great food. Plus, our server was excellent. He was personable and humerous.

Really live this place. My favorite restaurant. They make a great fillet. Basem is a really great waiter if you can get him. He will make your visit very enjoyable with custom drinks and meals and desserts.

It's become kind of an inside joke, but my husband can't stop talking about the salad.... Every time we go there he gets the chopped salad with crawfish and adds a skewer of grilled shrimp on top. We recently ate here for our wedding anniversary. We were there for a late lunch at 2:00 p.m. on a Sunday. Although the... More
