Great Restaurant & Bar in the middle of Town

Love this place for lunch. Seating on the sidewalk, outdoor patio, or inside! Great staff. They have $9 lunch specials Monday-Friday which are outstanding and generous portions. Love their beer selections on tap too!

There's not much better than getting to enjoy great food and at a great price, so I'm glad to hear that you've been able to enjoy our lunch specials. Of course, the one thing that may top that is a good beer, and we're more than happy to have a few on hand. Hope you'll be by again soon! Until... More

Wandered in on a Wednesday night in time for a trivia game, which was very loud, but fun. We had great service, despite the fact that it was packed. Food was great - it's hard to find fish/chips made with halibut, and it was done perfectly! Homemade meatloaf was my partner's choice, and it, too, was as good as mom... More

My husband and I smelled the most wonderful food smell as we walked down the street. We asked the hostesses outside this restaurant if the smell was coming from there. They didn't know so they just said, "Yes, let me get you a table". We later learned from our server that it wasn't coming from Pappy's because they don't barbeque... More

Pappy's is a great local spot to sit at the bar and enjoy a beer or classic cocktail. They pour a great drink and have above average "Pub" food. Friendly staff and nice warm Pub atmosphere. One of the only places in Paso that you could have a few drinks and still afford dinner..... Great Value!

Very busy popular restaurant on Black Friday afternoon. After numerous wine tastings we enjoy getting a bite to eat and cold draught of beer.

We has our rehearsal dinner at Pappy's on the back patio. The entire patio was reserved and we had a made-to-order taco and quesadilla station. It seems odd to have great Mexican at an Irish bar, but it was fantastic. Don't look past this location just because it's a bar/restaurant.
