Papi's Mexican Restaurant is our favorite Mexican place to eat. The food is always fresh and reasonably priced. The service is always great too.

We were driving back home and we were passing Denham Springs on our way. We were going to eat at our local Mexican restaurant, but decided to stop at Papi's because they have two types of salsa. Regular salsa you can get at most restaurants and a warm salsa. Very tasty! We stopped at Papi's but was informed they no... More

Papi's is a great little place, and my wife and I really enjoy the food. I enjoyed the shrimp burrito and the fajitas, and my wife really likes their enchiladas. I would highly recommend... More

We had business dinner here and service was excellent and the food was very good. All was on par with Dallas except it was more expensive

We had a large group and sat on the outdoor deck for dinner which was very pleasant. The food was served up pretty fast even with the large group and the pitchers of margaritas never ran dry. I would suggest going here if you are in the area.

Female manager was very rude to me. I will never go back. As a business owner myself, I recognize that one can be rude to the wrong people. The list my business and I would not recommend anyone there.

It is my experience to give a restaurant several tries before making a recommendation; everyone has a bad night. For Papi's, we gave them three tries. Two out of the three visits, food was excellent. The third, we never received our food and just walked out. The first time we visited, we were in a group. Service was very, very... More
