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.

Papas has great food, I highly recommend the seafood dip, served with fresh made chips! Love the look of the place, very informal. Friendly staff.

The staff here makes it hard to leave. They are sharp, attentive and nice. Papa's is one of my retreats when in Natchitoches. Didn't eat here this trip but they make a mean Bloody Mary. Try it, you'll like it!

We ate here while in Natchitoches right after Christmas. Great location and had pretty good food. The mini meat pie appetizer was great. I had the shrimp and catfish for dinner. It was fresh and tasted great.

The restaurant is right on Front Street which makes it convenient while viewing the lights and firework show. The food is good. Service is friendly but not really timely. Overall, we enjoyed the experience. Don't forget to try the meat pies!

This is how our meal went: Entered, sat down, ordered drinks. They came in cheap plastic cups, like what you would expect at a football game. We ordered our lunch- The burgers/ sandwiches only come with potato chips, you have to pay extra for fries. During our extremely long wait for our food to arrive, both of our drinks were... More
