Yummy! We love this place for its authentic Mexican food and amazing service. It's a small hidden place, but worth the drive!!

We have dined here four times. Once on a Wednesday and had the all you can eat Mexican and three times on Friday for the all you can eat shrimp. We usually come with friends and sometimes the guys will keep track of the shrimp each one eats. When the first plate of food arrives there are a bunch of fries and 12 shrimp. We always ask for more and ending up with a total of 20-25 shrimp each is not unusual. The waitress is always happy to bring us more even if we are maybe over indulging somewhat. If you like shrimp you can't go wrong eating here!

This is just a great place to eat if you like Mexican food at a fair price, and the service is always great.

The food at El Papa's is very good; fresh and homemade Tex-Mex! The guacamole for $3.50 is an insanely great price and delicious.
Service is mediocre, but I'm willing to overlook it because of the food and prices. (3.99 for breakfast and 5.99-6.99 for a lunch special)
