Growing up in Big Spring, you had Carlos' and Spanish Inn- both very very good restaurants, still there banging out great Mexican. Now when we visit Papa Chon's is the way to go- a spacious restaurant with fresh food and great service.

Great atmosphere, great food and decent service make this a place to visit. We've eaten here a couple of times, the first time our service was excellent but the second it was just average. The food makes it worth going back.

Friendly staff and a very extensive menu. One of the better Mexican places in Big Springs with daily specials and a full bar. The owner is usually there and it has a family feel.

We eat here every Friday night. My husband and I split Fajiatas for one. It is plenty for two old people. The margaritas are the best I've had anywhere. Just got back from Santa Fe and margaritas here are so good.

On of my favorites with family or friends. Good food with a full bar. The wait staff are friendly and the menu covers just about every type of Mexican and american cuisine. The prices are reasonable and reservations are not required. Parking is adequate on site.

Waitress helped us make selections and service was very good. The margaritas were very reasonable and good with a shot of Chambord on top. Try it if you never have. Yummy~

Food is okay but I stopped going a long time ago when I was charged $18 for 4 soft drinks, 3 of those being kids drinks. That's right, $18. Out of the blue they decided to start charging $1.75 refill, no notice, wait staff didn't inform us, nothing on the menu about it. Just a nice surprise when I got... More
