High quality beef. Homemade chips. Mild but flavorful salsa. Airy sopapillas. Food was good, unfortunately our service was not. I will say it appears that may have been isolated to our server; forgot an appetizer, half the mains served 15 minutes later than the others, and uncomfortably long waits in between drink refills, course, and getting the bill. If the... More

While waiting for a business contact (unable to make the meeting), Jorge was the perfect host - keeping us supplied with ships and salsa. The meal price was a bit "up there" for our limited budget, but service was exceptional.

Jorge was the best host for tonight's impromptu meal. Nothing was too much trouble, he was attentive to our table as well as covering another large table. While waiting for friends (that weren't able to make it) he plied us with double lots of chips n salsa. :) For the main, I had the Shrimp Diego / Jalapeno Sasuage /... More

On Fridays, my husband and I like to get some Tex-Mex and margaritas. We've been to several other restaurants but were told to try Pappasito's. We were definitely pleased with the drinks, food, and service. We've gone 3 Fridays in a row now and have enjoyed it every time. The fajitas are AMAZING! Shrimp tacos are also delicious, and their...

My mouth starts to water at the mear mention of a Pappas restaurant. Their food is consistently good and their service inpecable. Today I had a craving for beef fajitas. So I invited my brother and his family to join me at Pappasitos. That is about when things started to go wrong. I can look past lots of little inconveniences.... More

My wife and I arrived at 3:45, Saturday and waited 30 minutes to be seated. Three couples came in after us and were seated. We were finally seated next to the very rude Hostess podium. Ordered appetizers, waited 45 minutes without the incompetent server returning, left the restaurant, to never return. Horrible 1 hour and 15 minute dining experience. There... More

I work overseas for months at a time and when I'm not working I'm traveling, one of the first places I head for when I do travel to the USA is this place. When you walk in it is a feast for the eyes, atmosphere is great and it's usually always busy. In the evenings after or around 6 pm... More

In town for the livestock show and tired of the show food. It was worth the drive across town and 15 minute wait to have some awesome fajitas. Our waiter was a little overwhelmed but the team work by the rest of the staff kept us taken care of. The food was great as expected. We have been eating at... More

Pappasitos has become a tradition for my husband & I. Each year we have their Plato de Amor that is a variety of beef, chicken fajitas & shrimp and/or lobster served with their traditional sides. A Valentine's date is not complete without their delicious chocolate dipped strawberries 🍓 Make sure to call & make reservations for next year !!!

Always good. Great guacamole. Very good fajitas. Expensive. But worth the price. Food is top quality.
