First of all we came early and they were understaffed so we waited forever for a table however, they had empty tables everywhere and people before us were getting seated.

We went for lunch and had to wait 45 min for a table. But the food was delicious and the waitress was wonderful. She was super busy, but very attentive.

The food was great until we found a life bug underneath the chips. We both dropped our forks and called the manager. She was really nice and... More

Best Mexicon food for my taste. I never get disappointed at Pappasito's. I usually take the Pappasito's Salad with grilled shrimp, so good.

Some if the best Margaritas in Town. The warm chips and salsa never disappoint, and kept us drinking. Ordered the beef fajitas for two! Complimented with the classic rice and beans, the meat a perfect medium rare , crisp sear and tender. As always there were left overs for midnight tacos! Friendly and accommodating staff, we will be back soon!

Food is good but service is kind of slow so if you here for a quick lunch this is not the place. Drinks are good.
