Very good TexMex

Husband & I had lunch there today. Haven't been to a Pappasitos in quite some time simply because the closest one to us is 25 miles away. The chips were excellent-freshly made,warm, and thin unlike some. Salsa was unique, but very tasty. I was blown away by the friendliness of the entire staff... read more

My wife and I had dinner with our old friends here. Funny thing is, our first time together at this restaurant was 26 years ago, not long after this location had opened. I had the usual Papasito's Superior platter and my wife had the beef tacos. Always a favorite!

A colleague recommended this place but I was not impressed. Tables are very close to each other and service not very quick. Food was ok but not very special. Will go somewhere else next time.

Solid product every time, always dependable. We order the fajita packages from the Togo menu, add a pint of queso and sometimes extra tortillas and vegetarian rice. Family members are always happy with a meal from here. Construction obstructions were bad for awhile but have improved.

Whenever we travel to Houston we pay a visit to Pappasito's. The food and service are excellent! Although very large (4 people easily) I recommend the Appetizer Sampler (Chicken quesadillas, beef fajita nachos, chicken flautas, chile con queso & guacamole ) and for dessert I recommend the Sopapillas - a must ! The crispy tacos are really good, and chips... More

The food was good, but the service was rather slow. The restaurant is huge and holds a lot of people, so it's quite loud. Our server was very pleasant but she disappeared for long periods of time. Our drinks stayed full, so I can't complain too much about the service. The chips are thin, brittle, and easily broken but the... More

After living along the northern border I had not had quality Tex mex in long time! This place restored my faith that quality Tex mex is still very much alive and well! Our server Falcon took great care of us, the food was the best I have eaten since the last time I was in Texas! This is a must... More

Value for quality and type is to high. The concept seems to be is it is extremely spicy or hot.....is mexican food. You... More

The food is always great but it is always so loud inside and the tables are very close. They should expand the restaurant to accommodate the business.

We like to come here on weekends for a realitively earlier lunch. At that time it is not as crowded or as noisy. They start you out with some great salsa and warm, thin, crispy chips. The menu has some unique seafood and beef selections. Portions are large so consider sharing an entree. They will divide it in the kitchen... More
