Plenty of goodness

Just had the Papas chicken fried steak, and it was plenty and plenty good. I will be back every time I am in Liberal.

We stopped here while on a quick loop around SW Kansas. I had read several reviews online and picked this one from those recommendations. I simply had the hamburger and sweet iced tea. It was very tasty, charcoal grilled too. I wish I had been hungry enough to have tried their chicken-fried steak. A lot of people were ordering it,... More

We had high hopes for this place after reading the reviews. We started with onion rings and they brought us an onion blossom. No big deal everyone makes mistakes. When our onion rings did arrive, they were burned and really salty. We had to ask for little plates to eat our appetizer. I had a quesadilla (which was burned) and... More

Bland food and no alcohol. The food tasted like it was frozen. Had the chicken fried steak and the gravy has no taste.

The decor isn't the best, but that's part of the charm. The food is really prepared very well. It's hard to go wrong here. At times the floor and be a little dirty and that can throw some people off. The steak is quite good. Chicken fried chicken was very good. Servers are nice as well. I will admit that... More

Service was excellent, Theresa was very friendly and efficient too!! Brother in law had chicken fried steak, while we both had the chicken fried chicken salad, very good and... More

I always want to try a "new" place to eat when visiting a different town. This was right across the street from our hotel. I wasn't thrilled about trying it but it was recommended. I am so glad we went. In fact we ate there twice in the 2 days we were in Liberal. The sweet creamed corn was delicious.... More

This was the tastiest and most "home cooked" meal I've eaten in a cafe for many, many years. Food and service were both outstanding! If you are into counting calories and worrying about healthy eats 100% of the time! it's probably not for you? BUT, if you want delicious food, cooked fresh as you order it, tasting like the Sunday... More
