eated right away, but it took forever for a server to come to the table. My 5 year old just stared at his plate and asked if he had to eat his food. I didn't blame him!

I left like I was over charged for rice and beans!

We ate lunch there on a Saturday and ordered of the menu we were given. The waiter comes back and from what I could understand we were give the wrong menus and they don't serve lunch on the weekend. So basically the same food with higher prices. We ordered again and when we got our food it was stone cold! Not even a little bit warm! They have a salsa bar and every single one I tried had absolutely no taste at ALL! My kids food was so bad they wouldn't even eat the fries! I would have been better off down the street at taco bell. We all left hungry! With all the mexican restaurants in town you can certainly do better than this one...don't waste your time or your money!

First, once inside you will NOT believe you are in Anderson, South Carolina! The location is behind a Holiday Inn just off busy, busy Clemson Boulevard. Hard to find if you are not local. That is the only negative!

The staff is wonderful and extremely attentive, making everyone feel welcome. They are especially nice to children and we always see happy family groups eating together there -- there is absolutely something for everyone. The food is fresh and attractive and the prices are great. It seems that everyone leaves with extra food packaged for them - i.e., huge portions.

It is a fun, noisy, lively place that everyone likes. Beer is cold and priced correctly. Anderson has a lot of smaller Mexican restaurants, but why go there when you can go to Papas?? Enough said. P.S. The bathrooms are spotless!
