This is pretty decent tex-mex. Fajitas are good. Nothing really makes this place stand out though except for the franchise name. Shrimp tacos are awesome. I think that Los stands a bit above this place.

You can never go wrong with Sitos. Great food and great service. Tex-Mex, seafood. Great selection of margaritas and imported beers.

Good TexMex and margaritas, but really enjoy the ancho chile-glazed quail - which I haven't seen anywhere else. The tamales are really good, too.

Always good service with great food. Friendly staff and only suggestion is go early for lunch as it fills up fast. Could be very noisy so not good for business meeting.

Great environment. Great food. I will recommend the hand made tortillas and the Diablo shrimps. Also you can't go wrong with a cold beer.

We went to Pappasito's Cantina because we love the ceviche. When we got to the table it was not cleaned so we asked to be seated at another table sadly that one still was a little bit dirty.

Very loud - not a cozy place to dine but sitting outside is nice. The bar area is congested and to be avoided if you do not want to be pushed or shoved by patrons.
