Mourn Your Loss

The Pappas family have always sustained some of the best restaurant experiences I have encountered in life. I first ate at Pappasitos in Houston during the late 1980's. When the menu changed, some years back, the quality started to fall off. Tonight, I ate at the location in Austin. The chicken enchiladas, with the red sauce, were still pretty good; however, the hard shell chicken taco: a) had no red sauce; b) t... view more

Best Fajitas around

The fajitas here are the best I have ever had. The tortillas are homemade, the meat is always tender (beef or chicken), and it comes with the melted butter sauce! Hot roasted salsa is awesome, top shelf margaritas are large and potent (better be for 10 bucks!).\n\nThe tableside guac is great, and so is their tortilla soup!\n\nKinda weird that you have to pay extra for cheese and sour cream for the fajitas... really? ... view more

Yup - Its #1

I like keeping Austin Wierd, but when it comes to my food, I prefer my waitress not to have armpit hair. The food is ALWAYS GOOD. Service is EXCELLENT and worth every penny. I have NEVER been disappointed.

Come ON!?! #1? REALLY?

I mean really?!! A chain restaurant is number 1 in austin? Papasitos?\r\n\r\nwhat about Polvo's, Fonda San Miguel, Vivo's, Guerro's, La Feria, Maudies, Trudy's, El Arroyo, El Mercado, and even Baby A's is better....\r\n\r\nI can't believe papasitos is number one without paying someone for editorial spot. Keep Austin Weird!

Worth the wait

My husband and I have eaten here several times. Since this is the only location in the Austin area, we've had to wait to be seated each time. But the food and service has made up for it. We love their Table-Side Guacamole! We enjoy their Tex-Mex Combination plates. During our last visit, we had the Quail (first time at this restaurant) and it was delicious! They serve great food and the portions are generous. The onl... view more

Avoid Pappasitos for Dinner Parties

We booked the small party room at Pappasitos and were very disappointed. No one told us that the room had a door that opened to the hotel next door. There were people coming in and out of our party the entire time we were there. We asked the waitress to prevent people from interrupting our party, but we still had people coming through. It got so bad that when I tried to tell someone that we were having a party an... view more

My husband and I hosted my sons rehearsal dinner there in March and we were blown away with everything. Becky, the banquet coordinator, took care of everything, all we had to do was show up and enjoy the evening. The food & service were outstanding! We have been regulars for years and continue to do so. A +++++

pappasitos is the king of Tex-Mex

Pappasitos is the best Tex-Mex in town. The food is outstanding, the service is wonderful and the environment is exciting. I have been there several times and they will gladly take a party of 20 or 2. I recommend to go many times and try a little bit of everything. I can not wait to go back!!!!!!
