We went here to share a family meal and for the twin's first dining out experience with Gram (me). We all enjoyed what we ordered, nachos, fajitas, burittos. The place was very busy, but that didn't stop the wait staff from being quite attentive. Food is always fresh and delicious.

We went to Papa Gallo's (That's the way it's spelled on the sign and door) to check out a new Mexican dining experience. Upon entering the place, we were more or less greeted by a waiter whose comedic talents were nowhere near where he thought they were. After being seated, we ordered the Super Nacho plate as an appetizer. They... More

We go here for take out at least once a week. It's the best, most reliable food you can eat in the Bulverde area. The chef is excellent and the family run service is always exceptional.

We always have enjoyed going here but since a family split we go to Daddy'Os which has an identical menu and is closer to our home.

Ate here tonight. Always great! Best Mexican food within 50 miles. Pretty loud in the restaurant though.

We felt truly welcomed and noticed that most of the cliental were familiar to the owner. The portions here are very generous and obviously, fresh ingredients were used in everything we ordered.

I had a cheese enchilada, chalupa, rice and beans (the chalupa shell was a little stale). Hubby had pork tenderloin nachos - AWESOME! Very friendly and clean.

We always eat at Pappagallo's in Bulverde while in San Antonio. We ate here following a long day at the JW Marriott Resort and as always was well worth the 15 minute drive from the resort. The food is outstanding and you have to try the deserts!

Pappa Gallo's is our go-to local restaurant, both for special nights out and for when I don't want to cook. It's often busy but we've never had to wait more than 5 minutes for a table. Best quesadilla ever! I love the sizzling steak fajitas. Good specials nightly. Family-run by friendly folks.

Thank Jim S
