My husband and I shared the beef and chicken fajitas and it was still too much food. Cooked quite well and flavors were delicious. Service was slow at first, but then very attentive. I had the Green Chile Mule. Who knew they made green Chile vodka. Intriguing taste! Enjoyed to the last sip.

It's the whole package! Great atmosphere, amazing food, and great service. We highly recommend! Price is very reasonable especially for the amount of food. Go off hours or call ahead, always busy.

No bueno. Salsa tastes like coffee grounds. Fajitas under cooked and cold. Lackluster attitude by staff. Will not be back.

No trip to Dallas is complete without a trip to Pappasito's. It is the finest in Mexican food. Wonderful service and great drinks. This place never disappoints.

We've eaten at several Pappasito's Cantinas. It's without question the best Tex-Mex restaurant chain, maintaining the same high quality the Pappas family is famous for with their other restaurants. Priced right and hefty portions too. If you're hungry to Tex-Mex, this is the place to go.

I love this place for many reasons. The Pappas family gets it right with the menu and food quality. The Shrimp en Brochette is so amazingly good I can't get away from it. The table side fresh guacamole is a must for your first visit. My favorite entree is the Pappasitos Grill. Come with Chicken, steak on a skewer and... More
