“Good Food tight spot”
Reviewed February 6, 2014

The service was friendly and fast. The bean dip was delicious and the chips tasted freshly made. Food came hot and each plate could feed at least 2 people if not 3. Flavors were great. I had the last combo, spinach ench. and mushroom ench. with potato taco, inc. rice and beans. Only downside was the place was crowded and the layout seemed to attempt to fit people in every spot available. May be time to invest in a larger location.

“Good food for the price”
Reviewed February 4, 2014

This is an above average mexican restaurant, more "California" style Mexican food. The portions are huge, especially the burritos, and the salsa bar is always fun to experiment with to spice up your food. Service is normally quick and friendly. One of the better Mexican restaurant chains in the area (I'd recommend the Papas on Brevard Rd or this one, not so much the one on Hendersonville Hwy - just my opinion).

“Great Mexican Meal !!”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

We stopped here for a late lunch (2:30pm). I had a chili relleno with rice & beans - $4.99. It filled me up & was one of the best chili rellenos I have ever had !!! Good sweet tea & chips/salsa, too.

“Friendly Service & Good Food”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

Stopped in while down in the Asheville area for work. Of the two Papas & Beer in the area this is the better one. The staff are friendly and service is good. There is a nice selection of salsa for the chips along with a bean dip. I enjoyed the avocado tacos - very tasty. The refried beans are ok but I prefer black beans and wish that they had an option on the bean selection. My co-workers enjoyed their selections and we all left satisfied.
