                        Pappasito's Cantina has been a favorite for years but the last time we dined there the service was so slow that my husband had to beg the hostess for chips. We love the table side guacamole as always but my entree was covered in gross yellow melted cheese. It was sloppy and badly presented with rice spilling over the side. Not sure if I will go back.

                        While having dinner our rental car was broken into! Our suitcase was stolen. According to police and an employee, it is not the first time. Beware! There is no security. The restaurant was less than helpful and literally told me, ""Houston is a big city and these things happen"". Don't let it happen to you by not going there!

                        A waiter recommended this place to me which is usually a good sign. My family and I were not disappointed. We were immediately seated. The service was very quick and polite. Once we were served the food was terrific. \n\nIf you are looking for a quite place for you and your significant other, go somewhere else. If you want quality mexican food with great service this is the place to be.

                        Personally, the food is pretty goof for Tex-Mex food. The chips and salsa is delicious. The fajitas aint to bad either and plenty of sides they give.

                        The Fajitas are great!!! The service there is good, but not excellent. I think the marg's are a little over priced, but over all it is a good place to go and enjoy some very good fajitas and company!

                        Pros: Quality of food and drinks

                        Cons: slightly over priced, and there is always a wait

                        .

                        Not the greatest host staff ever, but it'll do... The atmosphere is very nice, the bar drinks are well done, the food is good, however the guacamole was a bit fermented, I hated the jalopeno juice in it. I had quails, and they were exceptionally GREAT. Best quail I had anywhere. \r\n\r\nWill definitely be back and bring people.

                        We've eaten at this location a couple times and the food is great, as expected. But what really made me happy was the experience we had when ordering takeout. We ordered two salads, and my boyfriend drove over, picked them up, and returned home. We discovered that neither of our salad dressings had been included (and when all you order is salad, this is a pretty big oversight). We called and explained the situation, expecting to be given a small discount or a free dessert on our next visit. The manager, I think her name was Holly, actually voided the credit card payment and gave us our meal for free. Totally unexpected, and we felt the situation had been more than rectified. Now *that* is how you manage a restaurant! We went from swearing them off forever to liking them even more than before.

                        It was ok. When I went the service was sort of bad. I could not believe the wait to get the food. The food was great though. I wouldn't recommend it for a family, but I would recommend this for a business meeting.

                        Little Sitos is the same great Mexican food of Pappasitos in a smaller setting. Even though the setting is smaller the energy is the same as the larger restaurants.

                        .

                        With all the Mexican restaurants in Houston, I fail to see the appeal of the Pappasitos Mexican restaurants. I suppose if you like rather bland Tex Mex it's ok, but if you like genuine mexican food or even FLAVORFUL tex mex, look elsewhere. These places remind me of the type of "mexican" fare I found in Utah and Maine and other places with few good mexican restaurants.

                        PROS: um..everybody thinks they're popular?
                        CONS: bland food, bland experience

                        We know the fajitas are great, but have you ever tried the tortilla soup? It's almost like a Mexican vegetable soup; it's full of chunks of green chiles, tomatoes, carrots, squash, avacados (yum!), and pico de gallo, plus huge chunks of their fabulous chicken fajita meat, all in a tasty, spicy broth (w/ crispy tortilla strips on top, of course). It's so great I get it for dinner (take-out) like every week!
