                          My husband and I travel a lot in the US (including Hawaii), and have lived in many different regions of the country, so we've eaten a ton of great food offered with great service.........however.........drum roll...........we agreed that Chris, the manager, and Chase, our server, gave us possibly the best service ever! We were part of a very large group on the day of the Cotton Bowl; as a matter of fact, our group was first one of 8, then 12 more joined us, then 2 more - all over the space of about an hour. Although the place was packed, Chris and Chase managed to accommodate us with a smile and put up with our pre-game enthusiasm with much grace. They were awesome and the food was outstanding Tex-Mex! Thanks for a terrific family reunion/Cotton Bowl ""tailgate"" at the restaurant! We will be going back whenever we're in town.

                          Hands down the worst Mexican meal and in fact the worst meal I've eaten in a restaurant in a long time. Food is so salty it is practically uneatable. Margaritas are poor - syrupy sweet with cheap tequila. Back to the bad food - had the crab stuffed shrimp with fajaita beef combo. I left with a stomach ache and couldn't even finish the shrimp it was so salty. Chips and salsa are substandard even for Tex-mex. And for 3 adults and one child eating of the children's menu it was $124 + tip. Ridiculous and would never return. And the ambiance - very loud like eating in a cheap cafeteria. Clearly the worst of the Pappas brothers restaurant ideas..........

                          This place has a great locaation. It is more of a bar atmosphere so its rather noisy. The food is fresh and has great flavor.

                          We had just arrived in Arlington (for the Paul McCartney concert) and stayed next door at Comfort Inn & Suites (wonderful hotel) and we were so excited to have our Mexican meal so as soon as we checked in we were over there. It was absolutely delicious but we ate way too much - should have taken a doggie bag home but we hated to stop eating as it was so good! We never got back there as we were too busy - would have liked at least one more meal. Would definitely recommend this restaurant but next time I'll get the slushy Margarita! Oh, the other salsa's were very good as well as the Verde but I'd just never tried that before - wish I had the recipe! I also wish I could send a picture of my sister and I as one of the server's popped his head in the picture in the background and it looked like his head was floating in the air - we had a good laugh over that and I wanted to send it!

                          Pros: Best Salsa Verde we've ever had!

                          Cons: Too much ice in the Margarita on the rocks - not much drink!

                          .

                          The best fajitas in town! Pappasito's has the most amazing homemade toritillas and chips and salsa. They are usually pretty busy, so the wait is never too long. Delicious margaritas and neat little patio. The price can be a bit much, so trying sharing an entree to save some $$.

                          The fajitas melt in your mouth. The tortillas are made fresh on the premises, the meat is tender and the melted butter is the perfect final ingredient. They also have excellent margaritas and really thin, crispy tortilla chips. You can't beat Papasito's for really fantastic Tex-Mex!
