Went for dinner while in Houston two weeks ago. Great service. Very nice waitress. Chips and salsa brought to the table speedily and oh so warm and yummy. Love the warm salsa. Mixed drinks are great. Had the "wave." This was a margarita and sangria mixed together and it did not disappoint. Came frozen and in a large glass. Had enough to share with my husband. Food was good. The red snapper was the best choice by far for those of us at the table. The steak tacos were outstanding adding too. Shrimp tacos yummy too. I would go back, if for no reason than to try another menu and drink item.

Great food and friendly staff. One of my daughters favorite restaurant when she lived in Galveston. We were here on business and decided to stop. It had been 15 years since we were here last. Lots of draft IPA and beautiful drinks. Food was amazing! Recommend Table Side guacamole. Lively atmosphere.

Pappasito's is a solid Mexican meal, wherever you are, but this location did a particularly good job. Undoubtably, we enjoyed our standard fare even more because of the exceptional service we received (I wish I remembered her name, because she was as good a server as you will ever see), but the food quality is undeniably good.

Pappacitas has been around for a while but still is one of the best and most consistent restaurants. We love the menu and the generous portions. The wait staff is outstanding and service is prompt and food piping hot. It is always a challenge to not pick Pappacitos for dinner whenever we are in Houston.
