It was a nice dinner with some friends. We got different specialities, I tried quesadillas beef and the taste was super! Then you get chips for free and funny atmosphere. Personnel friendly and always available. For brunch, lunch dinner and parties!

I am more a fan of non chain Mexican food. Papasitos offers atmosphere that is fun and festive. The drinks are excellent and service is fantastic. The food is a ok but not not exceptional.

Very busy establishment and a bit pricey, but that was to be expected. The margaritas are amazing and STRONG! The chips and salsa is great. My favorite dish is hands down the seafood enchiladas!! Shrimp, crab meat, buttery scallops, all in a cheese and sour...More

Pappasito's cantina is very fun but it is very large and gets packed. I would suggest it for large groups. The meal prices range around the $16 mark. You do get a lot of food for your money. I had a combo meal with a...More

It's been a long time since I first tried this restaurant (like 16 years ago). It remains pretty good and is always amazingly busy. I sat at the bar to eat and the bartenders were very nice and kept my margarita full (a definite plus).
