You will not go wrong here if you are hungry. American cuisine with a Greek menu and just about anything else you can imagine. Super huge pancakes that you can not finish on your best day! Good friendly service. the menu is enormous. I have liked all the flavors as well!! One of the best diners in town!

When we first ate here about 3 years ago we thought we found a gem. Service, food and portions were great. Well, who would know how the food is now as the last 2 times we drove across town to eat we never got waited on. We sat for over 30 minutes and no one even stopped to see if... More

Had a problem with our RV and in trying to find a place to eat near the repair facility we stumbled upon Pappy's. We had the Omelets and both of ours were not only very good but the servings were large enough that we not only had a great dinner, but a full breakfast left over the next day. The... More

I've been here lots of times, and we love the food. It's great. Today they were slammed, there were no tables to sit at, and a couple of times we were told to seat ourselves. That kinda' didn't sit well. A group left, we sat at a dirty table, waited and left. We won't be back, I would only suggest... More

Great food, homey atmosphere and more space than a lot of diners. The first time you kind of feel like the stranger in town. They recognize this and help you understand the ropes-nothing strange, just being helpful. Tables were clean, food was hot when arrived and comes in huge portions. Comfort food in a comfortable, friendly setting. What more can... More

Whenever we get the chance, we end up at Pappy's Diner. Their burgers, even after price increases, are very reasonably priced compared to most restaurants and they are very good quality. Plus, they have things like the Mediterranean burger that is stuffed with feta cheese and black olives (and other things) and comes with cucumber sauce. Lots of stuffed burgers,... More

I went here because there were such great reviews for their biscuits and gravy, well...they were GREAT! Some of the best I've ever had. They have a breakfast special until 8am, eggs, potatoes, sausage and toast for $1.99! I added a half order of biscuits and gravy. One of the best breakfasts I have had in a long time! Taste... More

Went there with friends and was excited to see a few Greek items on the menu. Food was reasonable and good. Staff is friendly, it's a local neighborhood hang out.

Took the kids here for breakfast because they said they were "STARVING"! Well I assure you nobody would be starving after walking into Pappy's. My daughter loves pancakes but beware ordering pancakes here. The "Baby" pancake comes on a large size pizza pan! It's at least an inch thick but surprisingly good for its size and perfectly cooked. I had... More

This was our first visit to Pappy`s just before going grocery shopping, It`s your basic no frills restaurant where you can grab a good meal at a good price. We just ordered a sandwich and quesadilla but both were very tasty and our server was prompt and friendly. I noticed theres a large meeting room in the back and there... More
