Description: Welcome To Pappy's BBQ"We've got nothing to hide, so the sauce is on the side!" "COME EARLY, BE LOUD, TAKE DA PARTY!"What's our secret? We prepare delicious, juicy Texas Style BBQ daily using only the best ingredients. We start by slow smoking our meats from 6-18 hours over white oak wood from a sustainable forest and finish them off with a selection of three delicious sauces and your choice of sides all prepared fresh in house. Choose from one of three superb sauces:SOUTH CAROLINA MUSTARD BBQ- Traditional South Carolina Mustard and Vinegar. Sweet and Tangy with a hint of fresh Rosmary. NINI BBQ SAUCE - A Texas Favorite Classic, made with local Coffee. MONIKS HOT SAUCE - A Typical East Texas Hot sauce. Enjoy em at Pappy's then take em home for yourself-all sauces are available for purchase.If you leave here hungry, it's your own fault!

“BEST TEXAS BBQ IN GUATE!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013

I have to say - after my experience with bbq meat texas style, cooking it and tasting it in the USA - that Pappy's is by far the best Ive had, not only in Guate but even abroad. The brisket is really good and tender... its difficult to even get brisket here... but Pappy's makes it happen.

Ok ribs are amazing. You eat standing up, with a ice cold beer... you just can't get enough of them. You can have them with a plate of red beans and mashed potatoes, that are to die for.

They have this bbq sauce that is great, but the best is the mustard sauce... mmm it goes perfectly with the meats.

I recommend to try the sausage as well... smokey flavour to perfection... what else? aaaa of course... its not expensive... the ONLY problem is that they run out of food quickly so get into a TUCTUC and hurry!

“Don't leave town without going to Pappy's”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013

Those of you who know real slow cooked BBQ in the USA, know that the very best comes from South Texas. Blake, the owner and magic behind Pappy's, grew up in South Texas and he is faithful to the seasoning and slow cooking techniques that have made South Texas BBQ famous. In addition, he is very picky about where he buys his meats - only the best quality. The result is without a doubt, the best ribs, brisket, sausage, pork, etc. that you will find this side of Austin or San Antonio. If you are in Antigua, "Don't leave town without going to Pappy's". You will be glad you did.

“Good Texas BBQ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013

We visited Pappys and had mixed feelings but overall
it was very good.

The ribs were the best part of the meal. The rest was good
but not up to the same taste standards as the ribs.

The owner was very friendly. Service was very good.

Prices were OK too.

“Good food, nice people”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

We've been in Antigua for a few weeks and just felt like some good american food. I had met the owner playing football (american) on the street a few days ago and thought it would work for us. We just had some lunch but the meat was very good, which can be hard to find with beef around here, and there was more more than we could finish. Would be regulars if we were staying here longer.

“Best ribs and brisket in Central America”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

For some weird reason we were missing our American comfort food and coincidentally we bumped into this little spot. The ribs and brisket were so good.
