This restaurant is a frequent visit. Be warned it is NOISY, but if you eat in the bar or in the "patio area it isn't too bad. Great food always and large portions. I always wind up with taking food home.

Went there twice this week. The Mexican food was quite good especially during the Hatch Green Chili festival. Service was very good, the place in very crowded and loud. We will go back on our next trip to Houston.

We rely on Pappasitos for fajitas, redfish tacos and brunch items. The grill is good with chicken, beef and fish; charro beans are well cooked, laden with bacon. Chips are very thin and occasionally there's a tinge of cottonseed oil present. Salsa is fresh, peppery...More

Little Zito's do not have private rooms. If you are looking for Mexican restaurant go across the road to Pico's. They have a nice private room and excellent food and drink.
