We are glad we went to Pappas for dinner as it is a step back in time with ambience and food offerings. You have the choice of counter or table service and you will see that many of the customers know the wait staff by name. We ordered hamburger $3.25 with fries $2.25 and the Philly cheese steak $6.95.

This is a family run restaurant that caters to lower prices menu. They do have a rotating daily menu each day with very low prices. This restaurant is not fancy, but the prices are one of the lowest in the area.

This restaurant was called "Famous Whataburger" when I was growing up. It had the same owners for years but changed hands several years back I believe. Still a very good place to eat, wide variety of food. Dining inside at tables, around snack bar or drive in outside. Food is good and reasonably priced.

This small restaurant, is a favorite place to go, and the food there is always fresh, but my favorite is breakfast. I love the sausage gravy with two eggs and grits, and the waitresses are have been there for years they all know there regular visitors, and always make you feel at home.
