A friend of my dad's recommended this place to him and as it had a good rating in Trip Advisor, I said let's go. We got there a little before noon and were seated right away. Our server took our drink order right away and after a while another server got our food order. They had a very nice and... More

I just heard of this place earlier this week and had a chance to visit today. Wonderful food at a great price for lunch. I expected a smaller burger, but they were very generous with their portions which I greatly appreciated. I really enjoyed the environment and it was nice to get away from all of the corporate restaurants here... More

Another off the path and non-chain location. I went for the tenderloin and it was definitely good. Great service and a place you could take the family.

We have been in town for 2 days and have tried multiple places. The food here was fantastic as was the staff. We had the grilled cheese bacon burger. Your bread is two grilled cheese bacon sandwiches with a 1/2 lb patty covered in cheese in the middle. How can you go wrong there?! My wife and I split it... More

We found this place a while back. It has become one of our favorite places. The crazy things they put on a burger and they are all great. They have amazing sandwiches and if you want taters and gravy they have that too on a chicken fried chicken or steak. Grab a beer or a huge iced tea. Bring your... More

Pappy's has good food and reasonable pricing. Their tenderloins are great. Especially the Guido tenderloin which is my favorite there. They open early enough for breakfast unless you are a 1st shifter but pack it in for lunch and dinner on most days. Go and enjoy.

One of us had soup and a wrap sandwich--great! Another had the daily special of a full meal--hearty! I had a tenderloin with potatoes and gravy--Yummy! Breakfast has been delightful, also. I like that they serve a small pitcher of iced tea with each order--awesome! Full bar, entertaining with TV sports. Fast service--usually 1 hour total from beginning to end.
