    The margarita is made with fresh juice, the salsa is warm, the chips are fresh and the guacamole is incredible. And it's in an airport? This is my new go-to spot in the Dallas airport.

    I was very impressed with my meal. Fresh squeezed orange juice in my Mimosa, and a great breakfast quesadilla plus some great customer service. A great stop for wayward travelers.

    If you have a layover in Terminal A, Pappasito's is the place to go. Good food. Portion sizes are quite large so you might consider sharing a dish with someone. They do a good job at breakfast too.

    I'm sorry, can you not be happy with giant margaritas? Service is quick & the drinks are what you need. Worth checking in early or during layovers

    Get the quesadillas with beef, share between two people. Way too big for a normal human, but delicious. Nice service for an airport, sat on the bar and everything was very agile and nice.

    Come in and grab the chips with the freshly made guacamole. It's only $10, makes a light meal, and it tastes heavenly.

    Don't sit with a view of the kitchen, they break all the health inspector rules, touching open straws with fingers, putting cherries on shakes with fingers, all staff drinking in prep area.

    Are you kidding me?! The best tex mex in the state, anywhere really. If you don't stop at this location be sure to stop at another one before leaving the lone star state. Ole!

    At first I was a little taken aback by the prices. But my grande margarita was huge and they mixed flavors for me - I got the chicken sandwich which turned out to be gigantic. Pretty tasty!

    We had fajitas for two (beef and chicken). I rated it a 9. Chris rated it a 7.5 Get the beef. Much better than el polo.

    Be sure to get the tortilla chips & salsa -- the smoky warm (temperature) salsa is great and the chips are some of the best I've ever had.

    Thin and crispy chips with warm salsa to start and all their portions are huge and delicious- plus their Bloody Mary's are smoky!

    Best burrito I've had in months. Granted, I was spending it in New England where almost zero burrito places exist and that I was extremely hungry, but it was so good.

    The fajitas are fantastic, both beef and chicken. The portion is also good for two especially after all the warm chips and salsa you'll end up eating.

    We had a 3 hr. layover and took a chance on coming from terminal D to A. Glad we did! This place was great! Great food and Rita's!!!!!!!

    If you're in a hurry or just want to save on gratuity, get some tacos to go. Then take them to the food court at A25 if you want to eat them at a table.

    There are no vegetarian options on the menu but they are very accommodating and can offer options off-menu. The queso was especially delicious!

    Located terminal A, gate A24, very close to Skylink train stop. Got Baja fish tacos (fried or grilled tilapia), substituted black beans for refried ones. See photo.

    Way better than airport food has any right to be - the beef and chicken fajitas (not sizzling) were excellent

    Chicken enchiladas really good. Suggest about a hour and a half or more between flights to eat there. Great place to kill time.

    Wow- I've never had such good food at an airport- yes the serving sizes are very big. Had the chicken spinach quesadillas, I'm stuffed!

    The cheese enchiladas I got for take out have some beef in them. Vegetarians, take note! Everyone else, they're still pretty good. But the salsa is smoky tasting...not my fave.

    The Cancun burrito is awesome!! I got it to go and I think it was the best airport food I've had in a long time!

    Get the breakfast burrito which they sell at the to go window, even if you sit down. And then ask for salsa to add to it. It's awesome!!

    Chicken tamales and tres leches, and drinks, are the only good thing here. But they're the BOMB!! wools, did I just say "bomb" in an airport??

    Upgrade to the top shelf Margarita. The tortillas are not as good as at the restaurants, so avoid the fajitas. Maybe they will get the kinks out in a few weeks.

    Best restaurant at DFW. Sour cream is $2.00 extra, which is discriminatory. Fantastic otherwise.

    The shakes are really good, the shorter, wider straws make the shake easier to enjoy;-)

    Probably the best airport food I've ever had. The fish tacos are really good! Grilled is better than fried though...

    Ask for a chicken soft taco and a platinum margarita. Worth a trip from other terminals.
