My sister and I were on a shopping trip to Atlanta and wanted Mexican food for lunch - something beside the same ole/same ole we get at home. We drove out of our way to Pappasito's on recommendation of a friend. We were not disappointed! Chips were light, not greasy, and the cheese queso was the best I've ever had.... More

When we drove in, we were afraid that parking would be a problem. But, we found spots with ease. The place was very busy at 7:30, but we were greeted with a smile and seated promptly. Shrimp tacos were all we could handle (along with fresh guacamole). Great service from Augustino.

Pappasito's was excellent for a chain restaurant. I expected to get a Chilli's or Applebee's experience, but got a lot more than this. The food was excellent. We ordered different stuff at the table and everybody was happy with their choice. The fajitas (which I did not get) seemed to be a winner. I had the salmon, not particularly a... More

One thing that has always been consistent at Pappasitos is that they have very large portion sizes for their food. We have been eating at their restaurants since 1984, and every location is very consistent. The service was very good as always, and the fajitas were right on! The prices have gone up some since the 80's, but the food... More

Our hotel clerk recommended this place. Great choice. Real Tex Mex. Great salsa. Wonderful chicken tacos. Delicious fajitas . More than generous servings. Decor was fun and beautiful. Service was fast and friendly. A little pricey - shrimp fajitas were $22 but that made 4 BIG ones. Very fun place.

Our first visit here but not our last! Found this place by referral from hotel staff. Parking was pretty difficult but the food was worth it. Great atmosphere and service. Taste so much better than other Mexican restaurants we've tried!

We have known about this place for a long time due tour visits to Papadeaux across the parking lot (which is run by the same family we believe.) On a recent trip through Atlanta we decided to finally stop and glad that we did. They are known for their Fajitas however, I judge a Mexican (or Tex-Mex) restaurant on it’s... More
