“Very Poor service”
Reviewed February 5, 2014

We dined here before and we did not have a great experience, but we are locals and we love Greek food, so we gave it another chance. Bad decision, again poor service and average food, we ware treated like spending our money in there did not matter for them. This time we will really not go back.

“This place is a survivor”
Reviewed November 14, 2013

About 10 years, or so ago. The highway bypassed Reeds Spring, & the town, & the business suffered.

I don't know exacitly how long they've been there 25-30 years. If they didn't have a very good reputation, & good word of mouth, they'd be long gone.

This is a family owned, & run, resturant, & it's still in the same family. So it stays pretty consistant.

Last time we were there, we both had the full rack of Baby Back Ribs. We could have split a rack & had plenty but we wanted to take the rest home for the next day. Yes they're that good.

Last time we were there, was a Friday evening, peak dinner hour, & it was pretty crowded, but they have plenty of seating, so we got right in. Despite the crowd, our service was exceptional.

If you order a Margureta, be prepaired for two, or share, because they bring it in a generous glass, then what wouldn't fit the glass comes in a water glass, on the side.

Their large Greek Salad, with an appatizer side, the stuffed grape leaves, are a good choice. Is a satisfying meal.

It's not a cheap place, but the value is there.

“A restaurant you'd shouldn't miss”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

Papouli's is in a cute blue house, divided into 3 dining areas, and they've got it fixed up very comfortable. First time we were there they had a party of 30 and one waitress that was taking care of them and the rest of the full house, she didn't miss a beat and never got flustered. We had to wait a while for our food because the little kitchen can only put out so much at a time but it was a fun wait. They serve alcohol and I saw several people ordering Bloody Mary's and Margaritas and they looked awfully good. We've only been to the Sunday lunch, the menu for that is handwritten on a notecard with 8 or 10 choices and 2 of the items are Greek dishes (the regular menu is much more extensive): Moussaka, which is made with eggplant, and pastitsio, which is noodles and ground beef. I prefer the pastitsio, my husband prefers the moussaka. The Sunday lunches are very reasonably priced, I think it was in the $10 to $13 range. They get packed so be prepared to wait or go early to miss the after church crowd.
