My family had a very delicious dinner Saturday night at Papa Gallo. I had the Carne Asada as I always do and it was delicious!

The food was tasteless. It bore no resemblance to tasty Mexican cuisine. The prices are high. Chips,which almost always accompany a meal are charged an outrageous $4.50.

In short, it was a waste of money. There were four people at the table. Two said the food was 'OK. Two said it was poor. The place is run down. The service was good. Not much else to say about it.

This was a rare experience with American/Mexican food where I could actually taste something other than salt. This tells me that the food is from scratch..not overly processed. Yes, they do charge for chips and salsa, but that is ok. You could actually skip an...More

Stopped into Papa Gallo's with our daughter for dinner. The pablano and potato soup was great! They have a large variety of Mexican cuisine. Family, casual atmosphere with outdoor dining available and plenty of parking!
