Lunch with friends on two different occasions. We were seated outside which was perfect for the weather. Brisket Sandwich the best brisket I've had in the area. Cole slaw was perfect on the sandwich and the best restaurant potato salad I've ever had. Our server was a kick and made our experience a most fun lunch! Good food and a... More

We got to Papa's at around 7:00pm on a saturday night (they're closed sunday & monday) and found the place packed and a waiting list at approx. 45 minutes. We ended up being seated closer to 30 minutes and got a picnic table outside, which was especially good because there is no air conditioning. That night's special was a sampler... More

Love hitting this place whenever I'm in Eugene. Love their gumbo (which can be prepared without shrimp if your not a crustacean eater) and the fried snapper is to die for. Not big selection of beer / alcohol, but the food more than makes up for that.

We went to Papa's about 3 years ago a couple of times. It was fun and the food was pretty good. Just revisited this week and we were very disappointed, probably will not be back. Husband had the fried crab which he described as very average and I had the hot links, which were hot but mealy. I had enough... More

I had the pastrami with that BBQ sauce that is the best I have ever tasted. My friend had the brisket and it was perfectly cooked. The red velvet cake was wonderful. I remember this place when it was the Blair Street Cafe (1970s), and then went through a few transitions. I hope Papa's never leaves!

Good price and great food in an awesome neighborhood. Years after moving away, I still visit Papa's every time I'm back in Eugene.

Pap's Soul food is located in what appears to be an old home in a somewhat residential area. Parking is on the street and I could easily park at noon. Menu is mainly sandwiches and Orleans type food. Prices are very reasonable. There is an outdoor area which is shaded with picnic tables. This is just good soul food without... More

Love the food, but you need to prepare for a wait for dinner. Fun to people watch and drinks aren't bad either.

The site itself looks so inviting from the street. No reservations are accepted and they wouldn't seat us until our entire party arrived but we were told they had a table available for our group of eight. We waited far too long for our table once our entire party was there (which was only minutes from when we put our... More

Came in for lunch. I tried to order jerk chicken. They were out of it. Had to settle with something else. It took almost 30 mins to get my order. The service just OK the food was horrible.
