Pulled pork sandwich is excellent. Pork tenderloin sandwich and hot beef with gravy are very good. This rather small bar and grill was packed at lunch time on a weekday. The service is fast and friendly and the prices good. Nothing fancy here, but the many signs on the walls are funny.

Pappy’s food is consistently good. The portions are large as is the menu; there is something for everyone. From burgers (try the Stroganoff Burger) to Mexican to Seafood. The cooks are amazing and I always put tip money in their jar before I leave. I’ve always had great service and the place is always clean. The owners are onsite 90%... More

Any of the food here is high quality but inexpensive!! My personal favorites are the Lunch Box Burger and the Stroganoff Burger but I have never had a bad meal here! Tuesday's are BOGO house made tenderloin sandwiches (grilled or fried) w/side. It's a nice local bar with a Cheers kind of feel and the owners give back to the... More

We were concerned at first with the locaion, but a quick call and the friendly response, I was ready to go. I called ahead for a party of 8, and they accomodated us nicely. The selection of burgers was second only to the taste. Love this place, and plan on coming back regularly.

I eat here all the time, mostly at lunch but also come for dinner. Everything I have had was good, especially the Reuben (Ruby) and the hamburgers. Service is good and typically fast. The only problem is that it's getting too popular and sometimes its tough to get in at lunch time.

We went here on a tip from the attendant at the Pony Express Museum. Pappy's is a typical neighborhood bar and grill from the outside and inside. We went toward the end of the lunch hour and the place was packed with locals - always a good sign. Even tough it was busy, the service was reasonably prompt and friendly.... More

Pappy's is a small restaurant nestled in a working-class neighborhood. It doesn't look like much on the outside, but we were treated to friendly service and good food. This isn't a bar that serves food; it's a restaurant that has a bar, but it still has that hometown pub feeling. We had the Stroganof burger and the chicken ranch wrap;... More
