Great food and lots of it. Located in the Airport which is great during a long layover. The sweet Ives tea is the bomb!

My husband and I love empanadas, and an internet search showed us that Papi's has them in several varieties. Drove up there mid afternoon on the Sunday of July 4th weekend. Were fortunate to get a parking spot in the fairly small lot behind the building. They are located just across the corner from Mary Mac's, which has always been... More

No one in their right mind would do this restaurant when they had to catch a plane. The food may be OK but the service is so slow it's almost impossible to have any chance to enjoy your food. I ordered the race sandwich and 30 minutes later it still had not arrived. Hard to imagine they can stay in... More

Good place to stop for a Cuban sandwich at Atlanta airport, T concourse. The staff is friendly and food is fresh.

If your travel plans take you to Concourse T of Atlanta's Hartsfield Jackson Airport, stop in at Papi's for something a little different from normal airport fare. Before an early morning flight, we enjoyed customized breakfast wraps and good, strong Cuban coffee. Choices are simple but satisfying. Next door is a shop selling tropical themed clothing, souvenirs and a nice... More

The waitress we had was quick and courteous. Food was AMAZING and very reasonably priced. You definitely get your money's worth. I had the polla vaca frita and it was seasoned well. The restaurant is small and you seat yourself. The decor is rustic but fits the theme of the food served here. I Highly recommend visiting if you are... More

Being from So. Florida I can tell you I have had my fair share of authentic Cuban sandwiches. And this, has to be hands down the best Cuban I have ever had in my life! The bread was soft on the inside and crunchy flakey on the out. The sauce was dripping with the perfect blend of spices. The pickles... More
