My family really enjoyed the food at Pappasito's. The meal was plentiful and tasty. The price was a little costly but well worth it. The restaurant is located downtown within walking distance of Minute Maid park.

Ordered a Childs plate for our son and a soup for my wife. My son really enjoyed his dinner. My wife's soup had a large amount of squash which she doesn't like, but she still enjoyed it.
