Eating in the Whitaker

Fast service and pretty good food. HUGE serving portions. You will have leftovers or need to share with someone. I had the BBQ chicken with mac and cheese. It was fine, I'm from Texas. This didn't compete with Texas BBQ but it was good. The bar had some very delicious drinks.

This place rocks. Way good food, well presented, and rapidly served the night we were there. I had the BBQ chicken, my wife hade the brisket with the fine sides of mac & cheese and collard greens. Great service. Prices were very fair given the food quality. Good size portions too.

Not our first visit because the food and service has always been good. Until today. After driving an hour to make it for lunch, we arrived near closing, with 10 minutes to spare. The server, Na-eem, indicated they were closing soon and they could only make us something to go. The little missus informed him we'd driven over an hour... More

We were going to be a party of 6, but only 3 were there, so they refused to seat us, and there were plenty of empty seats. When the rest of the party got there, they were greeted, as they were regulars, and we were told that had we mentioned their names, we wouldn't have had to wait. Really? Trying... More

I see why people come to Papa's but not entirely sure it meets the hype. We came mid-week and the wait was around an hour for 4. Host was friendly but you could tell he's really used to managing people's expectations about long wait times. Finally got seated after the main dinner rush. Took a while to see the server.... More

Stopped at Papa's Soul food with the hubby. We had to get a side of hush puppies first thing. They were tender well seasoned and delectable. We both ordered ribs. I had the red beans and rice with potatoes salad. My husband choose the black eyed peas and fried orkra. The atmosphere was eclectic and fun. The food good with... More
