“Great Soul Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

This is real find! The place is a very relaxed down to earth atmosphere. The drinks are delicious and served in fun mason jars. The food is the real deal...black eyed peas and fried okra. Yum! I had the pulled pork and the portions are very generous. Almost enough for two but we ate everything on the plate and still had room (barely) for their grand finale homemade bread pudding with Caramel or bourbon sauce. Definitely on my "gotta return" list.

“Great food on a nice patio”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013 via mobile

The food is excellent. Don't be afraid of the area or the looks. I recommend sitting in the patio if it is not raining. They serve most southern classics. We tried the chicken, brisket and hot links. All were great! The servers were very friendly.

“Like being in Nawlins”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

This was an unexpected find. I have often traveled to New Orleans and this place in Eugene, OR is right there with the best soul food joints. Great ambiance, food was correctly prepared and the portions were HUGE with no plate over $10.00 on the authentic menu. They have live blues on Fri & Sat on the outside patio dinning area. They also make a mean Sazerac !

“Eugene Has Great Soul Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

We were staying the Whiteaker Neighborhood and went walking around and discovered Papa's Soul Food Kitchen. We were somewhat surprised to find such wonderful soul food in Eugene. The food is on par with any soul food restaurant that we have tried in the South or even in Harlem. We had the pulled pork sandwich and chicken n waffle. We also ordered a side of French fries, fried okra, and mac & cheese. Oh yah, we also had the sweet tea. We did not have enough room left to try the desserts. The restaurant was hopping with many guests eating outside in the covered patio area and waiting to be seated outside. We opted to be seated indoors and were seated almost immediately. However, the restaurant filled up quickly. The soul decor in the restaurant was also nice, as was the service. If you are hungry for soul food or barbecue in Eugene, Papa's will not disappoint.
