With all the fantastic Mexican restaurants in the Austin area, this review is not to compare, just to celebrate one of the best! Everyone knows the Pappa's chain in Texas, and for good reason. Are there better (or different) Mexican food places? Sure, but Pappasito's...More

This was my first time ever in Pappasito's and it was fantastic. The food was excellent and authentic Mexican food, not the Tex-Mex variety. The steak fajitas were very tasty and tender. Homemade flour tortillas fresh off the grill and great guacamole. Service was spot...More
