“Bar b q!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

This is a small restaurant downtown that serves great bar b q lunches at a very reasonable price. The place isn't large, and the lines can be long, but it's worth the wait!

“Wow. Just wow.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Pappy's BBQ makes true southern BBQ aficionados weep for joy. The meat is tender, flavorful, and smoky, and the sides are to. die. for. Get there early, as there is usually a long line and once they run out, they run out for the day. Pappy's also caters, so consider them for your next catering gig.

“Best Pulled Pork Ever”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

My husband and I stopped here looking for some good bbq. We both had the pulled pork and it was fabulous-so moist! The sweet potato fries were also good as was the cole slaw. I would skip the green beans, The pulled pork is served on really good fat bread. Just a hole in the wall place with the greatest pulled pork.

“Awesome eats!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

The food is incredible and the place has a great vibe. I only wish they would move into a bigger space so more people can dine in. Would love to see a better brisket also, I have tried it twice now and it always seems a little tough. I may be trying too hard to compare it to our good Memphis BBQ but this place is damn good. The wait in line is worth it.
