I knew Pappa's from over 30 years ago. The food was first rate and the history behind it goes back to the 1950's. Now, not so much. It looks like a cheap diner, the food was mediocre and the service was ridiculously slow.More

Thank you for having breakfast with us! Lots of history especially since the restaurant will be celebrating our 94th year in business this November. The employees love talking about the history of Raton!

I popped in for lunch. The place was very clean and staff very friendly. My two small service dogs were welcomed very well. WiFi too. I'd go again for sure.

You maybe have to work a little to find Pappy's and some travelers may be inclined toward typical fast food chains. Go find Pappy's. It's a winner. The green chili fusion burger was splendid. Salads excellent. A quaint little place with good food and value!

I'm so happy to hear you enjoyed your visit! The chicken salad sandwich on homemade bread was started with my grandma and grandpa back in 1923. We still use the same recipe for both. Glad to hear you will get a chance to visit us...More

Family owned restaurant in business since 1923. Our sandwiches are still served on our homemade bread. We have expanded the menu this year to include more home style favorites like meatloaf with homemade mashed potatoes, and spaghetti. We have kept our local Mexican food favorites such as our pancake style enchiladas, stuffed sopapilla,and fajitas. We also have beer and wine to accompany your meal. Sunday's we have a breakfast buffet from 8:30-11:30.
