    Is it the same owners of Papadeaux’s? If so, yes great food and I also can’t think of the name......

    ETA: This is the one I am thinking of:

    You go there so you can have a story or stories to tell later, that's their schtick .

    Forgot to mention, many of the entertainers are senior citizens

    IMHO, Pappasito's isn't in the top 10 of Atlanta's best Mex or Tex/Mex restaurants.

    La Parilla is probably one of the better chain Mex restaurants in Atlanta.

    Taquiria Del Sol is always top notch.

    La Parilla in Oakwood is pretty damn good.

    El Sombraros has better salsa but La has better food.

    In my opinion.
