My family and friends enjoyed eating at Papa's and Beer after a visit to the Biltmore. We were seated immediately, and served chips. There is a salsa bar, where you can try many different kinds of salsas. They were all very good. The bean dip was fantastic, you must try it if you visit Papa's and Beer. I ordered grilled... More

This place has the best Mexican food in Asheville. I'm a Texan and very opinionated about my Mexican food. This place has an amazing bean dip and all of their meats are marinated to perfection. I'm also a fan of their salsa bar. If you are a fan of Mexican, this is a mandatory stop.

We have recently rediscovered this restaurant. We very much prefer this location over the Hendersonville Rd location. There are different owners and quite frankly the difference is obvious. We love the food, drinks and service here at the Brevard Rd location. Table-side guacamole is great! They have some petty unique dishes that I enjoy trying. There are two sections.. one... More

P & B is a small, fast-paced, strip-mall restaurant that serves tasty, fairly authentic Mexican food at impressively low prices. Flavoring favors moderate tastes, but the food is quite good. Presentation is simple, service bustles and is very friendly and professional. The restaurant features a complete bar--also quick, friendly, and relatively inexpensive. Jumbo margaritas should come with "take home" cups--they're... More

This place while it's name is strange has the most authentic and delicious Mexican food I've had! (And I'm a Texan so that's saying something) if you don't like this restaurant it is probably due to a persons inability to improve their palate.

Even after eating Mexican twice the day before, for my birthday, we couldn't resist eating at Papa's & Beer when we were in the area! Oh my...sooooo good! As always!! We were starving, but even though my hubby and I shared the Papa's fajitas (chicken, shrimp and steak), we still had some to take home. It is a lot of... More
