“Best fajitas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

My husband thinks Pappasito's fajitas are the best in town. I'm not a fan of the skin on the chicken fajitas though, but I love their beef ones. They will give you corn tortillas too (on request). Only problem is I usually fill up on their hot, fresh and light tortilla chips and yummy salsa while we wait!
Good ceviche too! We've never had a bad meal here, which is more than I can say for other Mexican restaurants around town.

“The Only True Tex-Mex”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

The food is always good Quality and tasty. Service could be better periodically. Always crowed...would not be bad if tables were not so close.

“Ok restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

Average Tex Mex food, but the noise level is really high. Not good for business lunches. Staff is always very nice.

“my go to restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I love, love the fiestas. Great Margaritas. Crowded happy hour, but worth the wait. Always a happy atmosphere. Especially love the location on old Katy road.

“Bring an appetite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014

2nd time at Pappasito's in Houston. This is the one with Kirby drive being the cross street (if it is not-apologies). If going for lunch, get there earlier-parking lot fills up real fast-by 11.30m it is full. We didn't order the lunch menu/lunch specials but went with the regular menu. Table side made guacamole is outstanding-refreshing and chunky!. I got the fish tacos which were huge-think 2, not one, almost hand sized pieces of fish perfectly grilled that u slice/flake and put into homemade tacos and fill with "stuff". Comes with rice and refried beans-it was delicious but the volume is huge. Colleagues had grilled shrimps and pulled pork-huge plates as well and very good. Pop is refilled free of charge. nacho chips are good. Staff were awesome and friendly and the place is always busy and noisy. Think it is a great spot and Id go back.
