I try to eat healthy and you can do this in almost any restaurant. There's almost always healthy options. Not here. Most of the portions are giant, and if you are avoiding shrimp for allergies, 2/3 of the menu is shrimp! I ended up getting...More

This is Tex Mex at its best. Consistent and delicious. Service is outstanding. Pappasitos is busy during peek meal times so come during off hours.

The fresh caught grilled red snapper was utterly mouth watering. Filleted and grilled to perfection with an herb, garlic-butter sauce, kissed with lime. The flavors went on and on! 3 jumbo shrimp topped the snapper and were perfect in their own right. Rice and beans...More

20 for dinner but don’t want to break the budget? Try Pappasito’s. They set us up on the outdoor patio with plenty of space to mingle. People naturally gravitate towards beer, fill up on chips then share Giant fajita platters piled with scrumptious shrimp, classic...More

When in Houston you have to visit Pappasito’s Cantina! Open family style seating in a noisy bustling environment, the service is good despite being very busy. Fajitas are outstanding, but you can’t go wrong with any of the selections.

Pappasito's is good, there's no real doubt about it. Huge portions, lively atmosphere, broad menu, no need for reservations, all positives. Unfortunately, there are also a handful of negatives. Bland food (yes, every dish is pretty ordinary), cockroaches all over the place, they seriously need...More

After 25 years of Friday nights at a local mom-n-pop Tex-Mex place, we have switched and become happily satisfied regulars at the Pappasito's at Willowbrook. The staff is efficient, friendly, and extremely accommodating. Service is great, even before we walk in the door. The food...More
