Pappasito's is one of the Houston fajita powerhouses, like El Tiempo or Ninfa's. Pappasito's is my favorite, though. I bring friends and family here when they visit. It's just a great experience. The decor is the classic garish cantina decor. The staff are quick and...More

Wednesday night is 1/2 price fajita night! They were amazing! We chose the all beef fajitas and we were not disappointed. The meat was tender and very flavorful. Staff was prompt and very friendly. Great night out with friends!

I am not sure what they do different but this it s the place to get fajitas. Always good (sometime you have to tell them to grill the onions a bit harder). The icecream dessert is also divine. For drinks I highly recommend the President...More

Little Zito's do not have private rooms. If you are looking for Mexican restaurant go across the road to Pico's. They have a nice private room and excellent food and drink.
