“Always Good! ”
Reviewed July 5, 2014 via mobile

I've been eating here for awhile. I love their gyros and they make a pretty darn good cuban, too! Try their Greek chips and Baklava.

“Kids Eat Free Sundays”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

I loved this restaurant because it was a super quiet place where you could actually talk with the person you were eating with. Apparently Louis Pappas began a Kids Eat Free campaign to get a larger share of the sunday church crowd. I can't fault the ownership by any means. I love this restaurant BIG time. Super great food. Really good service. I have a friend who has to eat very cautiously and is always able to order specific items outside of the normal menu meal offerings. Give greek a shot - you will like it!

“This is a consistent favorite --”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

Have not ever had a bad meal here, and my husband -- who is picky, picky, picky -- loves this place. If he can figure out how to be in Lakeland around mid-afternoon on a weekend, he is going to suggest Papa's for lunch.

And, here is the real proof in the pudding, while I always order something different, (check out the daily specials -- Greek Turkey Burger is YUM!), he gets the same thing every time we visit. The "classic" Greek salad.

There are many restaurants that I would be more than willing to visit again, but if anything is off to him, food, service, you name it, wild horses won't get him back in the door. So the fact that Louis Papa's offers a consistent level of quality and service to the degree that it is a "sure thing" for my husband is just HUGE.

Even the iced tea is super!

“Keeps downgrading”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

When Louis pappas first came to Lakeland, they were really good, but time has taken it's toll. The food seems to deteriorate each time we visited in both quality and quantity, while the prices do not. The staff here is extremely nice and informed on the menu. It's too bad the food did not keep up with the crew.
