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

Definitely will be going back. My chicken was pretty good. What I really loved was their cornbread I even got one to go and my friend their bread pudding. Service is good takes some time to get your food but worthy.

Visited with clients. Funky location with a house converted to a restaurant. Parking is terrible and you can expect to wait a while to be seated. When you sit down in the cramped dining areas you may be tempted to be unhappy. Wait til you get your dinner. My group had a wide variety of items and I tasted pork... More

Enjoyed a patio lunch with family in dappled shade picnic table area. Patio was fully enclosed from road. I had the beef brisket with fries and collards. Delicious and filling for around $11. Collards were not as I like them, with a bit more oil and less vinegar. But still good. Also enjoyed at our table: chicken waffles-nod to Leslie... More
