Looking for a great plate lunch or something off the menu? How about a burger, sandwich, salad, or maybe some gumbo? Well this is the place to go. A fairly large dinning area that has just had a makeover allows for a pleasant lunch experience....More

What are you hungry for? Pappy's has a huge variety of excellenty prepared sandwiches, lots of meat, or shrimp, or oysters, on their poboys. Great salads, and the gumbo is some of the best in town, especially on Fridays, when they offer the seafood gumbo....More

Visit Pappys when I'm on that side of 210. Pappys has a great selection for lunch - from gumbo to po boys to plate lunches. Service time is average, but slower if busy. Staff is always nice. Clean bathrooms. Good food for a good price.

Ate hamburgers and gumbo there. Gumbo is beyond wonderful. A little crowded because many people go for lunch - but it is worth whatever wait you have to endure. A+ on everything I've eaten there. Love it.

Went here for lunch and a couple beers. We sat in the bar side of the building and didn't realize that we had to get up and order through the bartender. Anyways, we ordered and our sandwiches were pretty good. Had to keep getting up...More
