Best ribs on our cross country trip. Wait in line, order and pay. Find a table and presto, your food comes. We split a half rack with two sides(included) it was enough. 4 sauces available. Original was our favorite.

Pappy's is our go-to place for barbecue!! There have been many new BBQ restaurants opened but, IMO, none compare to this place. The food is delicious, the people working there are helpful and friendly, and the 'vibe' is fun. I would also suggest using them...More

We have been to Pappys a couple of times, and it is always delicious! I love the smoker dedicated to Adam Wainwright… It is marked like a jersey with WAINO 50. Don't let the long line deter you; it moves very quickly. My favorite thing...More

Hello: Thanks for your great Pappy's review. I am quite nervous though. Will be visiting the city for the first time in early Feb. Thinking of going for dinner at approx 5-6pm. Based upon what you said, quite worried about availability. Any thoughts? Much thanks!
