We tried this restaurant because of the good reviews. They did not disappoint. It is a local spot with good food. It's not on the main strip but, worth the short drive. It's small but still great!
Will go back!

I’ve been to El Papas numerous times this winter season. Clean tablecloths make the atmosphere homey and the prices can’t be beat. Try the tostadas they’re delicious. Top it off with Sopapias and your sweet tooth will be satisfied.

We asked for and the owner graciously agreed to prepare dinners for our group after regular business hours. She prepared beef and cheese enchiladas, rice and beans for 50. They were delicious and we had so many good remarks about their meal.
Since that time my husband and I have been there and he continues to order her enchiladas.
We are regulars at Papas for breakfast and now include other meals as well. Thank you Papas. You are great

This restaurant deserves a 10 for value. It is located off the main drag. The interior is mostly clean. Service was OK but some language difficulties. Broad menu. We were there for breakfast. Good selection. The migas Mexicano was good. Spice was nice. The egg and chorizo breakfast taco was also good. It came in a floor tortilla but they changed to corn with no protest. The prices are wonderful. If you want good standard Mexican food at low prices, this is the place.
