“Nice restaurant downtown Huntsville”
Reviewed November 2, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

My wife and I had lunch (lamb) there. Food and service was good; pricing just about right. We felt fortunate to be able to park so close.

“Irate Server Alert!”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

I have been to this restaurant about half a dozen times. The food is marginal, but I work in the area and often my first choices are packed and it is default. They have a server who has not once, but twice thrown a fit in front of patrons and acted out like a spoiled child expressing his anger. Last night we ended up there because the wait for Cotton Row was longer than we had time for, and the same waiter we saw pitch a fit over something the previous time we were there, loudly treated a trainee served like a bad dog and then proceed to yell at two patrons who decided to leave the restaurant (likely because of his ill tempered behavior). The question here is: Why does management keep this half-cocked jerk on the floor? There are plenty of better servers who need jobs. This server is disorganized and terrible....add yelling at customers to get out after chanting "tick tock - tick tock - tick tock - tick -tock" in their faces as they were trying to tell him thy they were leaving, and you have a veritable psychopath.

“They Charge for Extra Bread!!!”
Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

We went to Papous on a Saturday night and celebrated a birthday with about 14 other people. Our server was not prepared for such a large group. The drinks came quickly, the food took forever. Our table had our food half eaten before the other table was served. The food was good, but we can do as well at home. They bring out one basket of bread for the table. If one of the guests eats more than one and you ask for more, there is a charge, but they do not tell you until you get the bill. Seriously??!! I recommend Pappous for a couple, do not expect great food, and do not eat more than one piece of bread. We will not return.

We ordered the Hummus, Spanikopita, Moussaka, and Baklava. It was fresh and very delicious. The only slight drawback was the bread in the Hummus plate, which did not taste quite right.

The lunch special short ribs, turnip greens & mashed with a side of corn bread. Melt in your mouth meat seasoned to perfection. I can hardly wait for tomorrow's special! Wanted to order the weeks worth of specials today so wouldn't miss them :) Always great fast service. Don't miss your next great meal stop in.
