“The Bluto...A Handcrafted Fantastic Sandwich”
Review of Pappy's Place

Pappy's Place
Ranked #274 of 709 Restaurants in Springfield

Description: Classic old hole-in-the-wall joint with great barbecue. I'd be glad to write a review, just discovered it although it has operated under this name since 1971 and has been a restaurant since 1924.

Pappy's Place is a hidden gem in Springfield Mo. It's been serving quality food and cold beer for over 50 yrs. The BBQ is great, with my favorite being the huge pulled pork sandwich and the sweet mustardy 'Liquid Gold' sauce. Specials are often offered which shouldn't be missed and the desserts are homemade and always fantastic! The carrot cake is moist and dense and covered in cream cheese frosting and mine was topped with tiny pink pig sprinkles. It is a BBQ place afterall! But if you are interested in a real treat, order the Bluto sandwich. It's described as a bbq ham and spicy hot link combo, but you need to know that the ham and hot link sausages are both made in house. Someone's really cooking in this neighborhood cafe/pub. Don't miss this little place.

I lived in Springfield for 25 years, then left in 1995. On a recent trip back to MO I made a special effort to have lunch at a favorite of mine. Pappy's is still GREAT ..... nothing fancy, just GOOD EATIN .... This place has ATMOSPHERE and the regulars keep coming back. If you are looking for a spick & span eating spot ....doen't go to Pappy's. If you want some GREAT BBQ then stop by.

This is a place where grandparents and their parents came to eat. Their chili is what it is known for. It is not in the best place in town, as far as I'm concerned, but there is no danger in that area that I know of. It is just not centrally located, so I have never gone there, except with my father.

Unexpected food, unexpected place! A really fun place to go for a beer and meal. Not fancy, but well worth the time to find it.

I use to go to Pappy's alot and loved it but my recent visit made me wonder if it's going under. The food was terrible as if it were watered down and meat full of fat. Even the sweet tea was watered down....and to add insult to injury your lemon slice was a packet of lemon juice slapped on the table! Seriously???? Several people asked if there was desert to which the server (who was suspect at best) replied there would be some the next day....really???? Well guess we'll all come back tomorrow for desert then....NOT!!
