Ribs are great - meaty, large portions, smoked to a perfect taste! Call ahead so you don't have to stand in line, or stand in line and enjoy the aroma that I hope heaven smells like!

So glad I live here to enjoy this luscious tasting BBQ. I brought my French guests here and they loved this truly American experience.

You have not lived until you tie into a rack of ribs from Pappys. Don't let the line scare you. It moves quickly. The sauces are also very good.

If you are willing to fall in line for fall of the bone, tasty, delicious ribs then definitely hit this place up! The only thing negative about this place is the wait! This is more of a "once-in-a-while" deal or if you are visiting town. Definitely worth the wait if you are a big meat eater!

There is always a line but it moves fast. The food is great. Don't worry about finding a table, there will be one available by the time you order. Their new Hoodoo hot sauce has a bite, but also has flavor.

By far the best BBQ joint in the "Lou"!!! The line, which there is usually a line, moves quickly and the food is well with the slight wait!! The sides are a great compliment to the wonderful BBQ that Pappy's turns out! The smell adds to the ambiance of the place.
