A local favorite for affordable Tex-Mex feasts in a festive atmosphere. – In Short
Brace yourself for the noise, circus-like atmosphere and, during peak times, a long wait for a table. None of which has discouraged diners who have made this chain popular in Houston. Who can fault sizzling platters the size of manhole covers, great value and seemingly indefatigable service? Tortilla soup, Pappasito's famous fajitas and shrimp diablo are all worth a try. If strolling mariachis who sing "La Bamba" every five minutes get tiresome, escape to the pleasant patio.

My favorite Mexican restaurant in Housto – Delicious beef fajitas, guacamole, the best chips in town, wonderful tortilla soup

Best Seafood Enchiladas EVER – Went to Little Pappasito's and had the BEST seafood enchiladas EVER. I'm going to take out-of-state friends here every time I want to show off what delicious Mexican food Houston has to offer.

Best tortilla soup ever! – 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!

best fajitas in town – If you want fajitas, then this is the place to be. The prices are a little higher but the meat is much more tender and flavorful!
