We tend to eat here before/after movies or shopping. Busy place, but lots of seating. We can bring groups here with no problem. Salsa bar has interesting choices that go along with the bean dip and chips that they bring for free to each table. They are not stingy at all. Extensive menu of different combinations. Although very Americanized, the... More

If you don't want loud, don't go. But the food is good, and the atmosphere is fun! Good burritos for sure, very large portions.

We live in Nevada, and every time we visit Greenville, SC, we make a point to go to Papas and Beer for Mexican food. We've been there many times, and have never been disappointed. The margaritas and food are both great. Wish we had one in Nevada!

Stopped in for lunch last month with my wife. Great food, but not a big fan of the sauce bar. They had a good assortment, but I don't like having to go get sauces.
