Took my 11y/o out for her first taste of Cuban. She loved the Pork fritta and I loved the chicken. Our server Christina was great!!

The food was good - authentic (based on my Caribbean experience). It was a week night so not crowded, no loud music. Service was fine, unremarkable, average. The cost was reasonable. I'd like to go there again on a weekend & see if it's 'livelier'.

Love coming to Papi's for the big Papi's hamburger but when I went there today the hostess and and a waitress yelled at each other . I got the impression that she did not want me in her section for reasons unknown. After that awkward start everything else went ok.

I really enjoy the food there. The dishes that I like the most are the ropa vieja, the vaca frita and the Cuban sandwich. The black beans are also great! The flavor is authentic and the prices reasonable. The problem that I have is that in the Lawrenceville, GA branch the service is awful. You can be waiting at the... More

The food is very good. The prices are extremely reasonable. And the entire staff are courteous and make your dining experience one you will want to repeat. If you save room, try a dessert, very tasty choices.

I met a friend for lunch and we ordered the rellenos de papa ( potatoe balls) and to stones (fried green plantains) with chicken. The rellenos were well seasoned and delicious. Now the tostones with chicken, could have been seasoned better. The tostones with pork that I normally get are well seasoned and delicious. The restaurant is always very busy... More

We have been to Papi's a couple of times- First time was for lunch and it was good, seasoned well, fresh and great service!. Second time was for dinner with friends - it was crowded, noisy, and the service was a little hit and miss. We enjoyed the good Cuban Food!

If you have never tried Cuban food, you must give Papi's a try. I have been to the location in Midtown, Atlanta, GA, but I generally go to the location in Lawrenceville, GA, by work. It is a very spacious location with the most incredible food. They generally have some hearty and reasonably priced lunch specials. I love the Cuban... More

Ordered empanadas; dry, barely warm, tasteless; They need to improve a whole lot. Insult to Cuban cuisine It was worth the money. Great wait staff though; I'll give them another chance one day
