    Used to be one of my favorite places until they inexplicably closed the outdoor seating /patio several months ago.

    The service left a lot to be desired. We waited for 15 minutes after arriving just to get drinks. After we ordered our food never came out. After waiting for almost an hour we left hungry v

    Ugh: Loud. Ignored by wait staff. Cramped booths. Chain. Other than that, not bad if you're completely desperate.

    The table-side guac is to.die.for!!!! If you can take that much guac to the face...it could be an entree, it's that big!

    When you order the Nachos ask for the half order because it will fill you up but it's cheaper.

    Not recommended. Overpriced and food is bland. ATL has many other mexican joints that are tastier and far less expensive. Skip this one

    Got the Plato tampiqueno, which is carne asada and an enchilada. The steak was excellent and the enchilada was pretty tasty. We had very good service too! Would recommend !

    Excellent food and drinks, great staff..very authentic, most of the other people probably can't afford it, therefore leave negative tips. No combinations here, just great food.

    Brought out guacamole but didn't bring out chips for 10 minutes. Overpriced and terrible service. Go to los bravos down Johnson's Ferry by Kroger.

    No beer on draft, margaritas expensive and bitter, frozen margaritas have zero liquor. Good food, but way overpriced. Definitely not Pappasito's.

    Do yourself a favor and don't eat here. Over priced and tasteless food. I wish someone would have posted this b4 I ate here. Good service but again really bad food. Just walk to publix and get a sub.

    This is a mexican restaurant for people who don't like authentic mexican cuisine. If you miss Rio Bravo, you'll probably like this. I'll be around the way at El Azteca or Los Bravos instead.
