Cooking has been a passion for Chef Albert Hernandez since a very young age. Growing up in a single mother home in Phoenix, Chef Albert was instilled with grit and a strong work ethic. He deeply admired his mother’s culinary creativity and ingenuity as she would create elaborate meals out of seemingly nothing on a shoe-string budget. The joy that he and his brothers experienced when his mother would cook is what eventually drove his desire to become a Chef. It is this same feeling of home cooked happiness that Chef strives to provide with every traditional Mexican dish he curates at Papi Gordo’s.

We hope you enjoy what generations of family cooking has created!

Everything was great. The food and drinks were delicious. Service was very good also. Didn’t really need a reservation when we went at 5:00 on Tuesday. I think they will get much busier when word gets out!! Would highly recommend!

Was very excited to come and try this new place. Getting there our reservation wasn't even acknowledged.
Nothing we wanted to try on the menu was available including the Aguas frescas. I mean, how do you run a restaurant without food?
Music was very annoying, I personally come to a Mexican restaurant to feel that vibe and there's nothing Mexican about reggaeton.

They do not honor reservations, so don’t bother making one. Do not sit outside; it’s dark and loud with the heater/fan and is just a patio with some chairs and tables. Not a good ambience outside at all.
Food came out very late, but the waitress did give us free tequila as an apology, so that was generous!
If you sit inside, this is probably a great place! The food is good.
