First time to try Natchitoches meat pie

Visiting Natchitoches on a road trip and saw Papa's as we were in the historical downtown, so decided to try. We started with the mini meat pies which were very flavorful. We ordered the po-boy for lunch. Both the fried shrimp and catfish po-boys had good taste. The tarter sauce was fresh and... read more

We were not very impressed with papas. The young kids working there were too worried about talking to each other and friends rather than providing great service. This place also needs to update their drink menu to attract travelers not just locals.

The sweet buns made these burgers extra tasty! Full bar and neat decor. We didn't order the cheese fries but I saw them go to several other tables and they looked and smelled delicious!

Very busy the night we went, they were doing the $9 burger for $3 so lots of people were in. We got a table with no problem but there was a little waiting time later. We shared the fish plate which was fried oysters, shrimps and catfish. All very nice and served very efficiently. Have to say the burger did... More

We happened upon this place after the intended destination stated they were no longer serving lunch. We ordered po boys. They were good, server was sweet, and we received quick service. The prices were reasonable. It seemed like it would be a fun place for happy hour. They were affiliated with mama's nearby I believe...that place looked good too!

A friend who used to live here told me I could not pass up a stop at Papa's. They are famous for their meat pies. Wow! it was an amazing meal! I had a bowl of dirty rice as well and it had meaty chunks and gravy mixed in and the flavor was superb. If you come to Natchitoches, you... More

This little place filed up early with visitors and locals. The fried shrimp was delicious. Right in the historic shopping district.

Although this place touts itself as a bar and grill it is more bar than grill and is in fact relatively small. I tried the meat pie which was basically ground hamburger meat which had been seasoned and covered in flaky crust. It was disappointingly bland. The fries and salad were OK.
