“Been here a few times, usually pretty good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2012

The wife is from the Eugene area, so when we come back to visit we like to check out this local favorite. I've eaten here 4 times, and only once was it crap (may be kitchen turnover, not sure). If you like hearty southern style food, with a little bit of kick, check out this joint. I honestly really like the atmosphere and the food (southern fried chicken, sweet tea in a jar, the hush puppies, etc.). This place is parallel to a place in my hometown ( Great Falls, MT, Goode's Bayou and Grill)--similar types of dishes, although the atmosphere at Papa's is hands down way better. Small place, so get there at a decent hour to have dinner. Haven't had the breakfast, so cannot comment on that. I would return just because most of the time I've eaten here it's been delish.

“Great potential!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2012

This southern style restaurant has extreme potential, however, they need to get an experienced chef in the kitchen to rethink the menu.

“Used to be good but now freezer to fryer”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2012

Awesome food when they first opened up. Now from the freezer bag into the fryer. I love good southern cooking and this used to be. The place is packed still for supper but then so is Burger King ..haha.

“Great food in Eugene”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2011

I had the fried chicken and my wife had the beef brisket. Everything was absolutely NUMMY! The staff was great despite it being jammed after a ducks football game. We will return on our next visit to Eugene.
