We ate here twice on our stay in Houston. The Quesadillas with Fajita Beef was so delicious, I ordered it both times we went. The Salsa was not to my liking, but everything else was great. I would definitely eat there again in the future.

The food quality was pretty good but for the price we were expecting amazing. I enjoyed the ribs and quail. The baked chips frankly sucked and the fried were average at best. The one thing that probably dropped our score the most was the service. Our waiter was slow, not very informed and didn't even offer a second round of... More

Great dinner. Large portions (easily share-able), and consistently good. Fajitas and Margs (although watch Marg pricing, not always a good deal). Always happy to come back!

Our waiter Justin suggested the avocado ranch sauce which was very good. I had the steak and chicken fajitas and my husband had the steak fajitas. It came with... More

Stopped in with extended family as this place never disappoints. More than enough food for everyone. Although we got fajitas and just shared, it was of course great. The fixing's they provide are plentiful. Service is always the best and attentive!

I dined at Pappasito's with my daughter and granddaughter when visiting Houston. We love TexMex and this restaurant did not disappoint. We had fish tacos and shrimp tacos that were fresh and tasty! My granddaughter selected the corn dog bites from an array of choices on the kids menu. The atmosphere is charming and the service was excellent. A perfect... More

Not much atmosphere, but very open and bright. Food was great and I even had a substitution on my order, which was cheerfully delivered. My husband really liked the burger. I had an enchilada. It was nothing fancy, but good. Our grandson ordered milk and it wasn't on their menu. The waiter went to the restaurant next door and came... More
