I know everyone has different tastes, but with the crowds here you'd think this has to be great. We visited on a Friday night and the line to get a table was long. Fortunately we were with a group who were already seated (it was...More

We love Papacitas! I’ve never been disappointed with anything I’ve eaten there. I’ve tried many items too! My favorites are the fajitas, “Danny’s special”, & chicken breast dinner. The portions are enough for two meals easily. The service is always great too! Friendly atmosphere, and...More

I haven't been to PAPACITA'S in a while but every time we have gone it has been excellent. They make their own tortilla's and the food is always hot and fresh. They have ample seating and the atmosphere is very goo.

papacitas's is a pleasant atmosphere to enjoy a meal. The food is good and the service is wonderful. You are served quickly and this is not a fast food establishment.

Very good service and wonderful portions. The salsa is good and the food was tasty. They have some veggie dishes for the meatless folks. Everything we had was very good. We will be back. The outside seating is really nice.
