Should be higher on the list!!!! This is the 3rd Mexican restaurant I've been to here close to the hotel. This is by far the best. I had the steak and pablano dish and a large side of guacamole to share. Could not finish everything on my plate. I was that full. The others were good this was better. Great... More

The food...excellent. The margaritas...excellent. The wait staff...excellent. I honestly couldn't say a bad thing about this place if I tried. It was quite busy when we arrived, we were given a number to wait on a table. A member of the staff asked if we'd like drinks while we waited, and they were great. The food was fast, and very...

I've ate here a few times now and it is quickly turning into one of those places that I make sure to stop in for a bite any time I'm in Chester. The chips and salsa they serve pre-meal are great and the meal portions are just right. Its quite a colorful and entertaining atmosphere in and by itself. I... More

I ate at Don Papa Grande while on my way back from a business trip in the Chantilly area. This was a first time visit for me so I am always taking in the atmosphere, cleanliness, friendliness of the staff and the quality of their food. Don Papa Grande hit high marks for all of these. The server Dinora was... More

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.
