15) Pappasito's Cantina

As the Tex-Mex outpost of Pappas Restaurants, Pappasito’s does this cuisine justice. According to their website, more than 3.5 million pounds of tortilla chips are served at the chain's locations each year. Holy guacamole! And speaking of guacamole, Pappasito’s is prepared tableside with fresh avocado, tomatoes, onions, jalapeños, and lime juice. What began as a family-owned restaurant business in 1976 has grown to include other cuisines like Greek, steak, and seafood. Pappasito’s stays true to its roots, with the majority of its locations in Texas.
