“Good Food and Service...but...”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

Wife and I went to meet friends for lunch. Had about a 20 min wait but once inside food and service were great. Only complaint was this place is loud. Was hard to have a "normal" conversation. But have to say the food and service made up for it.

“Consistently Great Pappasitos”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Anyone who is from the area knows that the Pappas family run restaurants provide consistently fantastic service and food. Great atmosphere. Always buzzing with people. Not a place you want to go for peace and quiet. You can always eat outdoors on the porch if you choose. Fajitas for everyone, always a winner. We go here every chance we get with the family. I know someone who would make a point to go to the Pappasitos in Dallas on his way out of state. This Sugar Land location is no exception. One of those places where you know what to expect and you get it. Great Tex-Mex!

“You Can't Even Hear Yourself Think”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

It had been over a year since we visited, so we thought we would give it another shot. The food is good, but really overpriced. If you are hoping to hold a conversation without having to shout over the din,(the acoustics are horrible and the background laughter and yelling unbearable) then I would suggest going somewhere else. I am still amazed that people will wait up to an hour for a table, and then have to scream to be heard by their table mates. Maybe this is because they have had so many margaritas by the time they are seated they are ready to party. We did have a great waiter who was intuitive - he seemed to know right when we would need something and brought it before we asked. If you want to be part of the party, by all means go here, but if you want a romantic dinner or to conduct business, this is not the place.

“One of the best”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

On the plus side, the food is great and so is the decor. On the minus side (which is good for Pappasito's) there is always a wait. It is also very noisy and hard to enjoy conversation. I also don't like to feel rushed when I eat.
