Lived in this area 25+ years ago and came out of nostalgia more than expecting good food! But it was GREAT - the best tortilla chips and salsa, wonderful fajitas and delicious smoky shrimp tacos (all shared!) It probably is slightly more expensive than some of the Mexican restaurants around, but the quality is terrific and the frozen Margaritas worth... More

Love coming and sitting at the bar here for a margarita & appetizers. Always great food and service, it's a little pricey for Mexican food, but it really is worth it.

Grabbed lunch for our Tex mex fix. Skillet chicken nachos with chunks of chicken and black beans. Very good. Great frozen margarita and thin crispy chips.

Pleasantly surprised with the quality and presentation of the meal, in addition to the generous portions. The grilled beef was tender, juicy and flavorful, the chicken & shrimp were also spot on! The handmade tortillas were soft, fluffy and delicious. Unfortunately, I find a very long strand of hair in my food. But, I MUST commend the manager, Aaron Castillo,... More

Always good! Been here many times and have always enjoyed it. Last time though, Dustin was our bartender and he was outstanding. He was training other employees while handling everything else during rush hour without breaking a sweat. We appreciated the fast and personable service.

Sorry. Last time we came here was on Christmas Eve a few years ago. It was acceptable since most other Tex Mex eateries were closed then. Pappasito's was OK then. Not so pretty good this time. The food has gone DOWNHILL and is overpriced. The drinks seem to have had a Tequila bottle passed over the glass. My memories of... More

We were a family of 7 returning home from a day trip to Galveston, and as we know the quality of food at this chain, decided to eat here. The place was jumping! Every table was taken with a long queue waiting. We were told it would be 1 1/2 hours wait, but the tables outside are on a first... More

Pappasitos is by far the absolute best TexMex, period! But.... (I believe due to high turnover) there lacks consistency in quality and service. It's worth the trip because a less than extraordinary experience is still better than any other option. Get the table side guacamole, it's truly remarkable!

Had dinner recently with friends at Pappasito's. Service was very good. The beef fajitas were a bit stringy and tough - not what I would have liked or expected - especially for the price, which is high. The chips we originally got with the meal were stale and we had to ask for a new batch.

Thank William W
