10 Oct Pappasito’s Cantina (Sugarland)
Pappasito’s Table-Side Guacamole with fresh chunks of avocado with tomatoes, toasted jalapeños, onion & fresh lime juice, Beef Quesadillas served with guacamole & sour cream, Baja Fish Tacos with corn tortillas filled with fresh tilapia (fried or grilled) & jalapeño crema and Chicken, Beef or Combination Fajitas with fresh flour tortillas, beans & rice, sour cream, cheddar cheese & pico de Gallo have been my family’s favorites for many years. My first memory of Pappasito’s Cantina was over 20 years ago and was one that has shaped my palate for great Tex-Mex. The environment is friendly, professional and fun and the food is always bursting with flavor and cooked to perfection. My all-time favorite dish is the Baja Fish Tacos because the fish is always fresh and seasoned impeccably. The bottomless chips and salsa, refried beans and rice and guacamole are just a few of the menu items that keep people coming back for more. This place has been a place of incredible memories for my family as we’ve celebrated birthdays, job promotions, baby showers and life in Pappasito’s Cantina and I hope for many more years of memory-making and soulful eating experiences in this place!
Pappasito’s is the second largest concept in one of the largest family-owned and operated restaurant companies in the United States. The Pappas family of restaurants offers many different cuisines and traditions, but common to all is an obsession with quality food and superior service that’s reflected in every aspect of the Guest experience. Pappas is a respected leader in the competitive restaurant industry. The Pappas philosophy hasn’t changed much over the years. The drive still comes from a passion for excellence, a focus on innovation and attention to detail and quality in everything we do.
The warm, inviting atmosphere and family-focused attitude found in every Pappas restaurant started well before the Pappas brothers opened their first restaurant in 1976. It all began with their legendary grandfather, H.D. Pappas. He left Greece in 1897 and traveled to America to pursue his dreams. He brought with him a passion for quality and service that became the benchmark of his success as he opened restaurants throughout Tennessee, Arkansas and Texas. It was this same dedication to quality and service that H.D. passed down to his sons and grandsons. His sons, Pete and Jim, chose a different path than their father and entered the restaurant equipment and supply business. They opened Pappas Refrigeration in 1945. It wasn’t until 1976, when Jim’s sons, Chris and Harris, following in their grandfather’s footsteps opened their first restaurant, bringing the family’s American dream full circle.
When you step through the front door and the sights, scents, and sounds of Pappasito’s — the original Tex-Mex cantina — hits your senses, you know you’re in for an experience like no other.
The flavor, freshness and presentation of the food at Pappasito’s are beyond anything you’ll find anywhere. Only the highest quality produce, meat, and fish make it to your table. Their tableside guacamole is made with the finest avocadoes, onions, peppers, and tomatoes that only make it in if they pass the “Coke can red” test. Their legendary fajitas marinate in a special recipe before reaching smoky, sizzling perfection on their mesquite fired grills manned by extensively trained grill masters.
Of course Tex-Mex isn’t Tex-Mex without drinks as cool as the grill is hot. Are you a purest? Have an expert bartender pour you a shot from an extensive tequila selection — from everyday blancos to hard-to-find top shelf añejos. Or have them blend that shot into one of the many Pappasito’s signature handcrafted margaritas. Explore the true meaning of tingling taste buds with a signature sangria. And of course their selection of cervesas, wines, and standard cocktails never disappoint.
If that’s not enough to send your mouth into a watering frenzy, turn your taste buds to the Pappasito’s seafood selection. At Pappasito’s the only thing they might be more famous for than their fajitas and drinks is the out-of-this-world selection of fish, shrimp, calamari, and ceviche all prepared in true Tex-Mex style, sizzling from the grill or chilled to perfection, surrounded by colorful and delicious veggies and sides. Top it all off with made-daily deserts that might just make your head spin and you may have just found Tex-Mex heaven.
It all happens in the most beautiful, vibrant, traditional, and fun dining rooms north of the border, filed with happy Guests and a staff that can’t stop smiling, they love their jobs so much. Bring your friends, family, and an empty stomach to Pappasito’s and let them show why no one in the business can come close to delivering the experience they can!
