We ordered to-go and first, the service was very fast and friendly. We got the guadalajaro combination and the grilled fish tacos. Our food came with refried beans, rice, and they also included a bag of chips and salsa. The portions were very generous. The refried beans, fish tacos, the tamale, and the enchilada were delicious. The rice was fine.... More

Loved their food! The table side guacamole was fresh and full of flavor, tortilla chips light and tasty. Their homemade tortillas are wonderfully good. I got the Supreme combination and my co-worker got fajitas. Neither one of us could finish because there was so much food! The enchiladas are terrific and the steak taco in my combo was great. The...

It was late afternoon on a week day and I realized I hadn't stopped for lunch. I walked over to the cantina and sat at the bar. Super service and delicious Texas Mex fair. Try the Sangria! Bartender and the Training Manager were both behind the bar. A fabulous meal and delightful conversation. Try it!

Very nice and large restaurant. Food is very good but pricey for Mexican food. Domestic beer is $5.50 per bottle and most plates are over $20. The food is more Tex-Mex than true Mexican food. I suggest dining on Wednesdays when they have 1/2 off Fajitas.

Many restaurants attached or in house of a major hotel donor offer atmosphere or value to the patrons, but this one is an exception with wonderful service and beautiful decor. Excellent variety on menu and reasonable prices. Great for families, couples, singles. If In house hotel guest you do it have to worry with parking problems. Mixed fajitas were enough... More

My husband and I decided to go out before Christmas to eat and decided to go to Papasitos, because we can never go wrong to go there. It was a 15 minute wait which was fine. We got seated in the back room which was great, I felt more comfortable back there away from the big room. The service was... More

This is a great place to visit for some Tex Mex. They take reservations which is great because it's so popular. There is plenty of parking. There is a full bar and people were watching the game. This place has great ambiance. Check out the tortilla making machine. The nachos are so crisp definitely ask for salsa verde. We got... More
