There are better places than Dallas to get your Tex Mex on, San Antonio in my opinion has better. But they do a good enough job and give you enough options to keep things interesting.
For a chain Pappasito's is doing some great things. The Houston based franchise works hard to create a better than average Tex Mex experience. Using fresh ingredients, employing super great people who take pride in their work all add up to a great "how many fajitas can you down in ten minutes" night on on the town. And they have queso! Most Tex Mex places do, and it drives me nuts that more places back home don't include on their menu. Pappasito's queso is extra special because this was the first place where I tried it. Since then I have learned the nuances of queso and can tell you that theirs is one of the better ones. I always request that they add the spicy beef which adds some protein and wont make you feel as guilty as you are about to consume some major league fat grams. Apologies to my ass.
I've been coming here for years and always leave feeling satisfied and maybe just a little overstuffed. But that's kind of the point right?
