Pappasitos is by far the absolute best TexMex, period! But.... (I believe due to high turnover) there lacks consistency in quality and service. It's worth the trip because a less than extraordinary experience is still better than any other option. Get the table side guacamole, it's truly remarkable!

Had dinner recently with friends at Pappasito's. Service was very good. The beef fajitas were a bit stringy and tough - not what I would have liked or expected - especially for the price, which is high. The chips we originally got with the meal were stale and we had to ask for a new batch.

Very loud, to the point of not being able to hear the person speaking to you. Notice I didn't say I couldn't understand what the person next to me was saying to me, I could not even hear them. Prices were outrageous, food was good to very good, except for the queso; which was a bowl of onions with melted... More

Our family is visiting from Calgary Alberta.The energy exuding out of this really wonderfully designed building, drew us in off of the gulf highway. We were seated quickly and given fresh cooked tortilla chips two different kinds of salsa and dip made from avocados. Our server Edward A., was so knowledgable not only about the menu, but also about the... More

Consistently high quality Tex-Mex and service for many years. I've been eating here for so long I can't remember it not being a part of my usual dining. It is busy, loud and tables seem crowded (both adjacent to one another and on the table top) but the quality of food and service have never disappointed. If there's a wait,... More
