We arrived around 3pm on a Saturday. Walked right in with no wait. This is the time to go! My 22yr old son ordered the Briscut with a double order of Mac and Cheese-OMG THAT MAC!. I ordered the Pulled Pork Sandwich with a side of Papa's Fries. Everything was amazing! Papa would be proud.

Papa's is a classic southern style BBQ place. Prices are reasonable and portions are good size. I have tried a variety of things and was quite pleased, even the fried okra was good.

My father and I, both natives of South Carolina, visited this restaurant looking for some truly Southern cooking in this northwestern city. The fried chicken satisfied my demanding father, which is an accomplishment. I was less satisfied with the barbecued chicken: felt like just a pouring of strong barbecue sauce over the meat, and that sauce wasn't much to my... More

My first time at this restaurant. Every barbeque restaurant usually has a "sampler" option where you get 3 items .... brisket, ribs, chicken ...... I had this with 2 sides (black eyed peas and okra). Everything was super. Flavorful and moist. Not everyone knows how to barbeque well, without having to try to cover up "dry" meat with their sauce.... More

A great like hole in the wall with down home soul food. The food is consistent everytime we come. We have eaten the whole menu and then some (they have a daily special ) and it never disappoints. The chicken is fried to order so be prepared to wait a minute. THIS is not a place to eat if you... More

Great little place in an old home. Plenty of room for small and large groups, excellent lunch menu, gluten free options. I had the crawfish jambalaya, which was very, very good. Portions were generous and the lunch service was quick. The only downside: our server was new and could have benefited from more guidance as he learned the ropes.

Papa's is an authentic Southern soul food restaurant in a vintage home in a mixed-use neighborhood. You'll see homes, businesses, including a cannabis dispensary next door, young families, college-aged young people and homeless men sleeping in the park at the rear of the restaurant. It wasn't scary, though. If you're from the South, you know there are two kinds of... More

We visited Eugene, Oregon back in February to visit my son. I didn't know what to expect food wise. When we got there in the evening my son suggested we get dinner at Papa's to go. Their prices were very reasonable, so my expectations were not too high. I was tired after traveling for more than 12 hours and I... More
