Great pork tenderloin sandwich

I was in town on business, and chose this place for lunch based on good reviews. I had a great meal - a pork tenderloin sandwich (seldom seen outside the Midwest), American fries (sliced fried potatoes) and a big iced tea. Service was friendly and fast.

Located in a former drugstore in my boyhood neighborhood, Pappy's is THE place to meet friends in a sometimes noisy - NASCAR or Chiefs on! - but always friendly atmosphere. They have great sandwiches and sides and they serve iced tea the way I like it - in PITCHERS! That is right, tea fans: you drink your favorite beverages from... More

I eat pork tenderloins regularly and this one was sub par for the group I was with. The breeding and thickness of the sandwich was lacking.

The food is good, except for once and it took forever to get our dinner and then when we did it was overcooked, couldn't eat it, didn't complain. Just left.

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
