My son came down from Portland to visit. He had searched out the local restaurants and found Paps's Soul Food. Parking was tricky because where there were signs pointing to public parking but there were also signs threatening to tow you in the supposed public parking areas. It was confusing but we found a normal parking space on the street.
We were seated immediately having chosen to sit outside. The menu was classic barbeque southern style chicken, brisket, pork along with sides like fried okra, collard greens, baked beans, corn bread, hush puppies and a host of many other items familiar to southern cooking. I never cared for collard greens but I love fried okra. Hadn't had it for over 20 years, having had it in Florida and Texas.
We both ordered the combo plate of barbeque chicken, brisket and pulled pork. It was fantastic but we couldn't finish all of it. Had to have it boxed for a later meal. It would have been better if we had ordered a smaller meal.
We'll return on the next trip to Eugene!
