We love to go to Pappas with family and friends. The Lucy Juicy is the best burger ever made. This is a family friendly environment, everything I have tried on the menu was great. Mitch was a great server. Super impressed.

First, this place is by far much better than 5-guys. I've had few things on their menu and it hasn't disappointed. I cant believe a turkey burger can taste this good. Ive had their regular burgers as well. I recommend their onion rings, frozen margaritas, and nachos as well. I sound like a fatty but this is my cheat place... More

Like all the other Pappa's restaurants, I enjoy Pappas Burgers a lot! The inside atmosphere is neat and there waitstaff is usually friendly and extremely helpful! Their hamburgers are large and their fries although different and very skinny are surprisingly delicious! Their ice cream shakes are super delicious and they provide plenty of it! I really love getting an oreo... More

Extensive burger menu with tempting starters and desserts. Very popular so be ready to wait at peak times. Try the BBQ chicken wings to start. For smaller eaters you can ask for a burger to be split over two plates. The mushroom Swiss burger with fries, split with my wife was more than enough. A wide selection of bottled beers... More

Visited Houston after being overseas for more than four years and the first place we wanted to eat was Pappas Burger. When we lived in Houston would eat there at least twice a month once we discovered the place. Never been let down and the service is good.

If this is the son to papas steak house your not going far wrong to experience the best burger in town. I think they use the same beef as dads place only my guess mind you. It's always busy so get used to listening to other people's conversations. Just sit down tuck your napkin into your shirt and gorge yourself... More
