Pappasito's Cantina is part of a larger group of Pappas restaurants, including pizzerias, steakhouses and burger joints, with locations across Texas. The restaurant's emphasis is on fresh Mexican food, including Tex-Mex specialties and combination platters. Although Pappasito's doesn't provide nutritional information for its menu items, the restaurant does make an effort to accommodate special dietary requests.

Menu

Pappasito's has a wide-ranging menu, which includes Mexican-restaurant classics such as guacamole, nachos and tacos, as well as tequila-lime salad and grilled shrimp with pineapple butter. Most menu items are served with rice, slow-cooked beans, pico de gallo and white-flour tortillas. Fresh salsa is always available.

Nutrition Facts

One cup of Pappasito's signature salsa has about 180 calories, 2.5 g of fat, 40 mg of sodium, 40 g of carbohydrates, 11 g of fiber, 19 g of sugar and 7.5 g of protein. The restaurant's mixed-grill entrée, with pineapple pico de gallo, has a total of about 700 calories, 64 g of fat, 120 mg of cholesterol, 1,500 mg of sodium, 29 g of carbohydrates, 4 g of fiber, 18 g of sugar and 8 g of protein. Beyond those items, as of February 2011, Pappasito's has not released any detailed nutritional information.

Ingredients

The ingredients in any Pappasito's menu item have a huge impact on its final nutritional tallies. Basic ingredient information can be found in the menu, such as in a description of "Camarones Diablo," which describes "broiled butterflied shrimp with Mexican butter, guacamole and pico de gallo." On its website, the restaurant encourage patrons who have specific dietary needs, allergies or food sensitivities to talk with their servers and ask about which menu items may be most suitable for them.

Alternatives

If you're on a strict diet and need to know specific nutritional information about the food you order, one alternative to eating at Pappasito's is to prepare similar dishes at home to save potential calories, cholesterol, sodium and fat. For example, "Cooking Light" magazine's June 2007 recipe for beef-and-chicken fajitas has just 407 calories, about 14 g of fat, 41 g of carbohydrates, 64 mg of cholesterol, 841 mg of sodium, 31 g of protein and 5.3 g of fiber per pair.
