A long-time favorite

I've been coming to Pappas since I was a little kid. After all these years, the place hasn't changed. Interior is exactly as I've always remembered it, menu is the same. Prices have gone up but it's still one of the cheapest meals in town. Probably my favorite breakfast place in NSB, but I... read more

Papas offers a pretty extensive menu with specials like Chicken and Dumplings and Salisbury Steak. Not 4 star dining but hearty and affordable home cooking.

This was at one time a What A Burger. They still have curb service. I like breakfast but they have lunch and dinner. Always busy but very good service.

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 :-)

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.
