Food is terrible. Waitress sweeping floor while we were eating. Then, another waitress began mopping with a big dirty sloppy mop that reeked of bleach. Disgusting & offensive. This was my first & last visit to Pappas:(

We had dinner here on a Saturday night. I had eggs and hash browns with Blueberry Belgian waffle. I would have preferred the hash browns to have been crispier. Meal was unremarkable, but I liked it. My nephew had the bacon burger and fries. He thought he was good. He would have liked more topping options like jalapeños. It came... More

Not on the top of my list, Everyday style American food, slightly overcooked, over-salted, and over-charged. I have gone there several times, and left thinking 'I won't be back'. There are too many good restaurants to select from in the area. The environment is basic, counter- style, or small dining tables for four. Dependable, always there, and the old folks... More

Wonderful home made food at great prices. I had fried chicken, mashed potatoes with gravy,collard greens, rolls and pudding! It was only $5.00!The atmosphere is that of the 60s. The staff are very friendly and attentive.

My husband ordered the seafood platter and I ordered a double hamburger. It was delicious. Plenty to fill you up. I wanted a soft serve cone for dessert but the waiter recommended against it because it was "too soft", which I really appreciated his honesty. We both ordered the peanut butter pie, which was incredible and well worth gaining a... More
