As many years as I have been in the Spartanburg area, I never made it here. I was very satisfied with the food and service. Old-time diner feel.

Service was a little slow but the food was good. Had their Livermush which is actually fried liver pudding. Fried green tomatoes is a must.

Been to Papa's a few times prior - usually slow but food wasn't bad. After a visit about a year before with very slow service, decided to give it another shot. Big mistake...unless it prevents others from experiencing this place. Party of four, almost empty...More
