“not authentic”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

after having worked in LA for several months I was craving cajun food. Thought maybe Pappadeaux's would satisfy the craving. Boy, was it ever disappointing. It was bland, chain restaurant food that was overpriced.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

I always have a great time when I go to happy hour. They have good margarita's and the best oysters on the half shell. Friendly bar tenders!

“A Tasty Chain”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Make no mistake, Pappadeaux is a chain. However, so far as seafood in the desert landscape of New Mexico goes- it is pretty darn good. There are some unique entrees, and oysters are never in short supply. As other reviewers have mentioned, it can be a little pricey- but not more than you would really expect for seafood. Also, there are some great deals during happy hour. This is a very good after work spot.
