Our order...beef and chicken fajitas were fantastic! The absence of shredded cheese was a let down. Queso was creamy and had a great consistency. The Pico with gac was a surprise- -not spicy and the gac was smooth and creamy as well. Two draw backs--my wife's order, crab cake stuffed shrimp was late in arriving--waiter forgot to place order.

Pappasito's has the best steak and chicken fajitas anywhere and this location didn't disappoint. The service by Bret was also excellent.

This place is beyond delicious. Order the fajitas- splurge on the filet fajitas! Service was excellent. Tableside guacamole is always amazing. The restaurant is large which helps with the wait. They have an awesome birthday routine so if you are celebrating, tell them!

I have eaten seafood at the seafood branch (Pappadeaux's) of this company for OVER 15 years. I can not understand how the crab-stuffed shrimp at their Mexican restaurant is 10x BETTER/Tasty/Flavorful than the "Seafood"????? Pappasito's stuff their shrimp with lots of Lump crabmeat, while, Pappadeaux's stuffed shrimp is "mushy" with lots of breadcrumbs and minimal crabmeat. After so many years... More

This is our "gold standard" by which we measure other Tex mex restaurants. Classic offerings plus some creative seasonal options. Some of the seafood specials are simply Devine. Have to have bacon wrapped, jalapeños stuffed shrimp every time! Well managed with very attentive staff.

Everything about our visit to Pappacito's Cantina was outstanding! I wish I could remember our servers name because he was absolutely fantastic and made us feel like we were family. Although he is a native Texan, he made an immediate connection to my husbands Wisconsin accent because he had attended college in Southern Wisco to play basketball. Our servers smile... More

Their queso is good too. Entree : Have tried various combos. The ones that impressed me are the red fish with crab & shrimp and the quail... More

Great Tex-Mex food! Visited with several friends. All entrees were great! I especially liked the Nachos, because they were made individually (not a big pile on a plate) with each having it's own meat, beans and cheese!

What a great place, don't go on a Friday or Saturday night wait is an hour. Best food for the Money always consistent . If you get Bart as a waiter you just arrived in Heaven.
