This place is owned by the same people as Chez Maman and they use the same giant whiteboard-by-the-door reservation system, but instead of serving French food, Papito serves Mexican. We like the short rib tacos, but you can’t go wrong with classic al pastor either. No matter how much you told yourself you wouldn’t eat them, don’t skip out on chips here because their salsas are great.
