    This location is less noisy than I-10 near Gessner. The fajitas here taste like what fajitas should.Ask for "side" ($2) of queso instead of "small" queso ($5) if u have little picky eaters like I do.

    They have some of the best fajitas I've ever had - hands down no questions asked! If u like lemonade, try the hibiscus & strawberry lemonades - definitely among the best!

    Food is fantastic. Best place to eat if you have food allergies. Gluten free or Dairy free no problem. Try the bacon wrapped shrimp with fajitas. yum

    The frozen margaritas are much stronger than on the rocks. If you want a good kick, a grand gold from happy hour will do it.

    The food was saltier than I remember and quality has gone downhill as well. Sad. There's a reason why Pappadeux's has a long wait and there is one here.

    The prices seem to keep going up but the food remains average at best. Wish this was El Tiempo instead. Drastically overpriced.

    Pappasitos is good, but not $5 a plate more expensive than every other Mexican restaurant in Houston good.
