Ordered fajitas, and took everything to go. Everything was still super hot once we got home and started eating. Everything was delicious, the meat, the rice, the beans.......even the queso was awesome.

The service was terrible!!!! We had a one hour wait when the restaurant wasn't very busy; tables would sit empty for 10 minutes before being sat by the hostesses! Once we were taken to our table, it took a long time to get everything from drinks/chips/salsa to our food!! Try other Mexican restaurants in the area for food that's just... More

This specific location is always so friendly and makes sure to check on everyone at the table even if it's extremely packed. The food is great and never disappoints!

We had the Fajitas Formosa’s Family Size Chicken, Beef and Shrimp. We elected to do TO-GO order. The order was ready on time and I was offered refreshment for the sort wait. The food was fresh and delicious. The portions were good but a little light on the shrimp. There still a great place to dine.

Other than being a bit overpriced...nice menu selection, excellent food, wonderful waitress, the light, crisp chips taste great, super sauces, and the drinks went down nicely.

Went with a large group. Fajitas were very good apps the same. Very busy and a little expensive for Mexican food. I would definitely go back to try other menu items

Loved this place, great atmosphere, food was great, service was awesome. The only draw back about this location is that it is very loud and noisy. Could barely have a conversation and they has a mariachi walking around singing and you couldn't hear him unless he was sitting on your lap. Still a good place with good food.

This is a great Tex Mex restaurant. I love the fish tacos (fried). When I first moved to Texas, they gifted me a free dessert and introduced me to the gem that tres leches cake! The servers are friendly, and the bar area always seems to be hopping (but not in an obnoxious or loud manner.) It has a fun... More

While on a layover at the Houston, TX airport, a local resident recommended Pappasito's for a meal..The Cantina is located in a food court that was quite large & thankfully had plenty of seating. Our service was helpful, friendly & fairly fast. The prices are reasonable for the size of the portions, and best of all,the food was delicious. Should... More
