The UN-Hampton

No pretense, no frills, no dress code, no fancy - no problem. Simple decor & simple fare, well prepared and happily delivered. John Papas is a small-town America local Mom & Pop eatery. You will not be blown away: you'll be well fed and come back for more. It has no chic to it, just a wide variety... read more

Get breakfast, lunch or dinner at this reliable small spot with booths and tables. American food with several daily lunch and dinner specials. Unpretentious.

John Pappas has been the local go to place in East Hampton for years! Located in the village parking lot, with close proximity to the Hampton Jitney, it is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. However, it is closed for dinner on Wed. Nights! It is not a fancy place ... But at times there is a waiting line. It... More

The food is very good and the service is excellent. There is a wide variety of choices and the prices are reasonable. It's kid friendly and usually quite busy. I don't think I would order a steak dinner there but for salads, burgers, sandwiches, etc. it's terrific.

If you're looking for a quick and easy diner style meal, John Papas is fine. The burgers, omelettes and basic salads are fine. On the salads, one would be well advised to ask for the dressing on the side since they are usually very generously dressed. One time, the server enticed us into getting a prime rib which was a...

If you want diner food then this is the right place for you. The food is always fresh, always good and the service is fast and friendly. It's not the most stylish place but for a quick bite I would highly recommend it. As the owner is from Grece all the greek dishes are very good, but also the sandwiches... More
