Papa Nachos is our favorite Mexican restaurant because it consistently has great food. The service is very prompt and attentive no matter how busy they are.

Excellent location in Leon Springs and have frequented the restaurant for several years – Their lunch portions are really for two people and the nice thing is they offer the lunch menu on the weekends which is rare in a lot of restaurants. Their chicken Verde and Fajitas are awesome and if you order the lunch Fajitas; it is enough... More

The girls at work enjoy heading over for lunch. The fijitas are our favorite dish. Service is great, food is always perfect, and the lunch service is quick for the quality of food.

We pulled up to the restaurant and questioned if it was even open. The outdoor furniture was all grouped together, dirty and put away. One door had a sign in it with an arrow so we went to the side entrance. There were 3 tables of people dining at noon on a Saturday so that should had been our first... More

We are really sorry to hear about your experience and the issues with the food and the other family there with children. I will direct the managers to seat people separately in situations like that, although we are a family restaurant, so we will not deter families from coming into the restaurant to enjoy our food.

The cheese enchiladas were delicious. Chips and salsa great and you couldn't have gotten better service in a 5 star restaurant. Heaping portions and attentive waiter helped make dining out very enjoyable.

We ate with some friends at Papa Nachos in Leon Springs this past weekend and were pleasantly surprised. The food was excellent, I had Spinach enchiladas, my son had shrimp (grilled) tacos, and friends had shrimp fajitas. We all had frozen margaritas and everything was delicious. The salsa was very fresh and the chips light and crispy. We will return!

PN is usually a good place to go when we don't want to travel inside 410 to go to one of the plethora of Tex-Mex restaurants that abound therein. The understanding is that the food will not be quite as good as the tried and true south and west side taquerias and that it will be 25 - 50% more.... More
