No better place for breakfast

If you want to start your day off with a great breakfast, this is the place. In fact you can have breakfast all day long. The burgers are old school and very good. One of the few places left with a true curb service, however the server is not on roller states :-)

Had breakfast here as part of the Rediscover US 1 Scavenger Hunt. The food was acceptable, nothing grand, regular breakfast fare, out of sausage links on a Sunday morning! Busy. Sat at the counter...looked up and...mold on the ceiling tiles! That is enough for me not to plan a return any time soon.

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. With very low prices for lunch-specials and earlybird dinner fare, this restaurant is often crowded. Service is efficient and friendly. The place is spotless. Very... More

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

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.

Always a busy place with great drive-in foods---comfort foods. Have been several times & will definitely go back. Large portions, great prices.
