One of the best buys in town !

Good food, large portions, and reasonable prices make this a busy place. The place where the locals eat regularly.

Papps Drive-In & Family Restaurant is a one-of-a-kind Mom & Pop restaurant well known in the Smyrna Beach area. Located on US 1, local residents, particularly elderly people and blue collar workers, enjoy this restaurant.

If you're looking for a good hamburger, relaxed service, friendly staff, casual, and the kind of place where everyone from everywhere converges, then Pappas is the place. The sesame seed bun was incredibly fresh, the hamburger was good, the fries had a bit of a funky taste but that might have been from all the road dirt we inhaled riding... More

Pappas is a cute restaurant, but the food we had was nothing to brag about. We love the drive in and curb side waitresses. The prices are fair but the food was not very good. There are lots of choices, and maybe we just didn't choose their best meals.

We were here for lunch but they also have early bird specials. We like this place because the daily specials were reasonably priced and very tasty and the portions were more that enough for us. We brought some back to the hotel. We would definitely go again.
