It was slow and the food was average. The noise level is almost unbearable. Tables are so close you bump into each other when moving the chair to enter or exit the table.

We came for lunch and had the Laredo combo platter and the lunch plato del mar. Both were great, epsecially the bacon wrapped shrimp and the tamale. We will for sure come back again if in the area.

The food was great and the drinks were awesome, but our waiter must have had too many tables, because the service was not good. We had to ask to order, ask for drinks and ask twice for the check. Table of 8 shouldn't have been too hard.

As always, at least for us, this place never fails...the Giant shrimp, not the jumbo shrimp, cannot be matched anywhere! If you are looking for outstanding Tex Mex, this is it, hands down! Great enchiladas, ask for the habernero salsa (it's optional), and great drinks, too!

Visited Dallas recently and ate at Pappasito's. Very good Tex Mex flavors in the shrimp tacos. Perfectly grilled. The sangria was delicious. Server was friendly and attentive . Prices seemed a little steep but this is Texas after all.

The food and restaurant was like any other Pappasito's I have been to, but that is why we go! Love the chips and queso! The service wasn't great, but they were very busy! We will definitely return!

I always get the chicken fajitas and ask for no skin. Sides are just ok. Great service! Fajitas are pricey. Lunch prices are cheaper.

We love Pappasitos and eat there when we run across one usually in the Houston area. The fajitas were a little dry and so were the tortillas (overcooked). I did love my Baja Smash and the service was very good
