I had a fajita salad. There wasn't a lot of lettuce, but it was full of chicken, peppers, avocado and zucchini. It was truly delicious and well priced for such a huge amount of food. They also had a salsa bar where you can choose from 8 kinds of salsa. They also served a spice bean dip with chips instead of salsa.

I really love this place ! The spinach burrito in a spinach tortilla is just delicious. The rice is fluffy and actually tastes like rice. The pintos are whole and seasoned perfectly. There are many salsas to try on the salsa bar. I appreciate the fact that Frida Kahlo is everywhere in the restaurant. Always friendly and fast service. NOT your average Mexican place.

Great Cali-Mex food, meaning nothing too subtle but everything is fresh, servers are totally friendly. Sometimes it gets a little noisy.

This East Asheville addition to the growing Papas & Beer is a good edition to the relatively dirth of available restaurants in Asheville. Service was friendly and the food was served quickly and hot. The freshly cooked chips and warm bean dip arrived pronto and were good. The portions are large accompanied with good rice and outstanding, non traditional pintos. My wife like her tamale, but did not think it was special, while my carnitas burrito was good but uninspiring. I would have appreciated a better trim job on the pork as about 25% was fat. Not a place to go out of your way for, but plenty good if you are in the area and looking for a decent Mexican meal served quickly and piping hot.
