The waiter was not friendly at all. The taco salad shell was burnt, too little lettuce, and the beans quickly turned it into a nasty grey soup. Not once did the waiter check on me to see if I needed anything or if my food was ok. Iced tea was watered down and over priced also, don't bother, get water.

Sub par food , ugly decor and a waiter that we could barely hear. Also don't think you should be storing the table used for making guacamole at the front entry way. Sanitation hazard.

Food and service are always good, quick, and cheap. The bar is pretty stocked, and the drinks are typically great. Go, you won't regret it.

My son kept asking me to go because he frequents the restaurant with his girlfriend. I was not disappointed. A LOT of choices, I picked the fajita burrito on the lunch specials (#25). First, they brought chips and two dips, one salsa and one with a creamy texture, not spicy. Our service was excellent and everyone was kind. The food... More

We have made a point of stopping here in Chester several times on various trips because this authentically decorated Mexican Restaurant has Delicious Authentic Mexican food at very reasonable prices. Located in shopping center. Don't Miss It!

Stopped by for lunch and had a nice meal as we normally do when we eat here. The chips and salsa are hot and fresh and the entrée came quick and hot. The tacos are good and the chili relleno was fresh and well prepared. We enjoy stopping here when we're in the area.

Went to Don Papa for a business lunch while in town, this restaurant rates a 8-9 in our book...... Great Mexican very good ( huge menu, great selection for vegetarians, too ) very fair prices, perfectly attentive service, very cute decor. Definitely I will consider this restaurant for a future convenience.
