One of my favorite lunch spots.

I travel to st Joseph often for work and eat lunch here often with some of the locals. The food is always real good and the service is great as well.

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

Looking for lunch in St. Joseph, then this is the place. Classic diner, pub, grill food served in a down to earth environment. Not expensive but very good. Take time to stop

Trouble is, it can be on and off. Great tacos and burgers: sometimes.Nothing is ever bad. Most of the time, it is really, really good. Guess it depends on who is cooking. They do try to please. Would avoid the buy one get one free tenderloin Tuesday night. Too busy.

My boyfriend and I had been waiting to try Pappy's Grill and Pub since we moved to Saint Jo, there burgers look amazing on the commercial and they proved to be so. We weren't greeted at all, just stared at when we walked in, so we took a seat at the bar. However we had very awkward service by a... More

Man, Make sure you are hungry. The hamburgers were delicious and huge. My oldest son had the bacon cheeseburger and loved it-he even ate the whole thing though I swear it was as big as his head. I had a black and blue burger and my mother one with peanut butter-all very good. Fries were pretty good but cole slaw... More

I was visiting St Joseph. MO this past week and ate lunch at Pappy's Grill and Pub. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was awesome. I had the enchiladas with chili on top and it was so good. The servings are huge and very tasty.
