Pappy's has a great atmosphere with interesting signage and decor. The burger selection is great, and there are many fry options.

First time visitor here and it was terrific. Robust menu with lots of variety. Friendly staff, great service. We had two different burgers (perfectly cooked and served on a fresh, warm grilled bun) and a specialty deli sandwich. Homemade potato chips were a nice change...More
