We had a fantastic dinner time with great food. Very nice service and the Filet Mignon fajitas exceeded my expectations. Flavor taste portion just wonderful. I didnt give them a well deserved 5 because of ni music or very low volume which makes it a bit noisy Will be back

Every time we are Houston Pappasito's is on the list of must stop places. The food is also good and the service is as well. The prices are a bit high but it is worth it.

Whenever we are in the area, we always try to get to Pappasito's! This was a family visit and we shared the fajitas for 4. Just can't be beat. We like having Tex-Mex once a week or so and really think Pappasito's has the best. Service is ALWAYS attentive.

As usual Pappasito's had a waiting time to be seated. Ceases to amaze us the staff is always so courteous and have never ending smiles on their faces. Managers are visiting tables which has been done for years. Their margaritas are fantastic. Food is excellent. Can't wait for our next trip to the area.

It was a nice dinner with some friends. We got different specialities, I tried quesadillas beef and the taste was super! Then you get chips for free and funny atmosphere. Personnel friendly and always available. For brunch, lunch dinner and parties!
