Great food....not cheap, but true value. Outstanding service, great menu some of the best seafood ever. Can't go wrong going here. The wait may be long, it's a very popular place so go early or go late.

I sat at the to-go bar with some friends I bumped into and decided dining alone in the very loud and busy restaurant was not what i wanted to do afterall. A server named Rob helped me escape the madness, even though he wasn't supposed...More

With all the fantastic Mexican restaurants in the Austin area, this review is not to compare, just to celebrate one of the best! Everyone knows the Pappa's chain in Texas, and for good reason. Are there better (or different) Mexican food places? Sure, but Pappasito's...More

The service was very good and quick. We had the Fajita's for two and there was enough for three people. The Fajita's were very good. Love the warm chips and salsa that are brought to the table.

To start with the chips and salsa are great. Warm salsa, thin crispy chips. My go to dish is Pappasito's Grill. Mouthwatering chunks of steak and bacon-wrapped shrimp on a skewer with plenty of grilled white-meat chicken. My favorite part is the pineapple pico de...More
