This is the sister restaurant to pappadeauxs. They are almost next to each other. I had the steak quesadilla and the queso!!! Super delish! Friendly staff. These restaurant managers know how it’s done!!! 10 stars!

We are huge fans of the Pappadeaux chains- but this was our first visit to the Pappasito's Cantina. I feel the price was high for the quality of food. Also, they cater to large parties and share platters. I feel they should offer a small...More

Went for lunch. I had the recommended grill plate. The meat was a little less cooked than I would have like. The flavour was decent but not exceptional. Atmosphere was good. Service was very attentive and no complaints there.

Never had a bad experience and always enjoyable. WE have been to this location over 50 times and it's always delicious and perfect service. The table side guac is so creamy. The shrimp brochette is my personal fav.

I was shocked to see how expensive Pappasitos has become since I visited there last (over 5 years). Compared to other Tex-Mex options now in Atlanta, they are a good 50% more expensive than Chuy's (one of my favorites). It's not to say that the...More
