The food is always cooked to your specifications. The wait staff is some of the best in the metroplex.

A little expensive for lunch, but their vast menu and large servings and great atmosphere make this an excellent choice. Try it, you'll like it.

We have been eating at various Pappasito's since the original restaurant opened in Houston 30 years ago.

We always special order our margaritas, and the bar got them right. We decided to try the new shrimp tempura appetizer and there was a mix-up when we were brought a regular shrimp cocktail. The order appeared after our main dish, and since we'd eaten far too many chips (served with the best salsa I've had at a Pappasito's), we asked that it not be served. The waiter returned it to us with the compliments and apologies of the management for the tardy arrival. My husband enjoyed the shrimp itself but felt the sauce was much too spicy.

We had the shrimp brochette, which we asked to be served on the place instead of hanging on the skewer, getting cold, and they were very good.

It did appear that the post-Cowboy game crowd had overwhelmed the staff and the kitchen a bit.

All in all, I would give them a second chance on a non-game night.

Fajitas and shrimp come with so much food with sides of rice, beans and veggies. Tortillas taste like they are made on site. You must try the guacamole made table side

I love eating at this place. I usually order their grilled beef fajitas. Their fajitas are marinated, tender and grilled to perfection. Their homemade flour tortillas make this fajitas tacos yummy! The atmosphere is perfect for a family fiesta. The service is fast and efficient.
