Had the beef and chicken fajitas. Beef was excellent, chicken was OK. Rest of the food was very good. Waitress (CC) was great.

Papa's restaurants are dependably good and always clean. They are well ran and have excellent wait staff. For a change I had the Texas redfish with lime, avacodo and butter.

Their Ceviche has always been delicious and plentiful. Yesterday's glass was only 2/3 full. So I called the manager, and even showed her photos that appear online. She was gracious and had the kitchen redo it. She said everything is weighed. Therefore, all I can think is that the portions have been reduced. Shame, because it's already pricey.

This is pretty decent tex-mex. Fajitas are good. Nothing really makes this place stand out though except for the franchise name. Shrimp tacos are awesome. I think that Los stands a bit above this place.

You can never go wrong with Sitos. Great food and great service. Tex-Mex, seafood. Great selection of margaritas and imported beers.

Good TexMex and margaritas, but really enjoy the ancho chile-glazed quail - which I haven't seen anywhere else. The tamales are really good, too.

Always good service with great food. Friendly staff and only suggestion is go early for lunch as it fills up fast. Could be very noisy so not good for business meeting.
