for those looking for a cold beer and tex-mex kind of place, this is good. Taste and quality of the food and service were very good. Portion size is large.

This chain used to be great. The prices have gone sky high for what is offered. We also noted that everything was very, very salty.

I've been to this Pappasito's twice now and had tasty food and friendly servers both times. Our server Nequila (sp?) was knowledgeable about the menu, attentive, and warm. The time we went to Westheimer the food could best be described as "over-charred". At the South Loop restaurant, the beef was delicious (maybe not spiced the same as the amazing beef at Lupe Tortilla - best place I've been to for fajitas, but much less fatty) and the vegetables and salsa were excellent, too. My mom noted that the salmon mango salad was surprisingly hot (as in spicy), so if you tend to be a lightweight when it comes to spice, you might want to double check each dish here. My dad, however, thought her food was fantastic.

Delicious cannot describe just how good the food is! This Resturant is a MUST if you are in Houston or surround area, the fajitas are out of this world. The mango salad with the salmon was out of his world! Great staff, great food!

Nothing unusual here for Pappasito's when you get the fantastic fajitas - beef is tastier than chicken, but the chicken is still good if you want to go for combo and some variety. The lunch menu is a nice break on the wallet, especially since it includes Sunday - it is a few bucks less than dinner and offers smaller portions (i.e. small fajitas which means for 1 instead of just medium or large). We sat at a bar table, and the bartender waited on us and several other tables and did an outstanding job.
