Wednesday specials are Fajitas half price - and they come with all the fixin's: chips and two kinds of salsa, guacamole, fresh tomato/onion, cilantro, juicy chicken strips, tender beef flanks, rice and beans, all served hot and promptly after placing an order with our friendly and attentive waiter. Seating outside is quieter than inside. Very popular for dinner. Plenty of parking, overflow behind restaurant. Great value. Recommendable.
Oh, and they of course have margaritas and try their sopapillas (3$, enough for 4 to share) to round out the meal.

We came to Pappacito's on a recommendation from our cab driver as we were hungry from our flight and ready to experience some of the local food. It certainly did not disappoint. Our server was very welcoming, and as we were from out of town coming for the first time gave us a bowl of queso on the house. The two guys circulating the restaurant playing the guitar certainly added to the already fun and bustling atmosphere. We got our food right away (a chicken fajita platter for 4) and were surprised how filling it actually was. It was definitely a great value if everyone in your party wants the same thing.

There's no denying that Pappasito's serves good Tex-Mex. This is evident in the amount of people that frequent the restaurants. This being my second time, I thoroughly enjoyed some chicken fajitas. The food is fresh, hot and flavorful. If I have any complaints, it's the sheer noise volume from the number of patrons at the restaurant. It may be beneficial not to go during Happy Hour, but both times that I have been (this time during Happy Hour, previously during lunch time) it's been crowded. Nevertheless, you can't go wrong here if you're a fan of Tex-Mex.
