I haven't been to PAPACITA'S in a while but every time we have gone it has been excellent. They make their own tortilla's and the food is always hot and fresh. They have ample seating and the atmosphere is very goo.

Really enjoyed the Chips and fresh Salsa! They were very much above average for your typical Tex-Mex restaurant. My Chicken Fajitas were just average though. Good tortillas but the grilled Chicken was nothing special (good but not remarkable/memorable). Service was satisfactory/friendly.

Great service, fun place, busy, colorful. Food was very good but not what I would call outstanding. Amazing how different food can be considering the same cuisine (Mexican). Chips were seasoned, ok nothing wrong with this - they were good but not what I was...More

papacitas's is a pleasant atmosphere to enjoy a meal. The food is good and the service is wonderful. You are served quickly and this is not a fast food establishment.

Very good service and wonderful portions. The salsa is good and the food was tasty. They have some veggie dishes for the meatless folks. Everything we had was very good. We will be back. The outside seating is really nice.

The food is decent but the chips make this a must! Best chips in town, great hot sauce and a good staff. Give them a shot!

Kelley the waitress is awesome! The food and margaritas are amazing and the pet friendly patio was a great place to chill despite the heat.

I'm not a big fan of Papacitas as I moved here from California and this was my first taste of Tex-Mex. It took me several visits with my husband and his family to even say it was alright. I've had better in California at local...More
