I had a craving for a chopped BBQ sandwich and someone locally referred Pappy's. I could not eat it. Personal preference, I will never try this establishment again. I had to throw out the sandwich. Not tasty at all.

Pappy's is only open until about 5:00. Limited menu and, even so, you're not guaranteed that they'll have what you want. When I stopped in, brisket and ribs were gone, settled for chicken and sausage (both very good). Corn bread gone, beans good but not...More

Pappy's is a no frills place. Food is cafeteria style and you eat with disposable plates, etc. About 8 sides are available. The potato salad and coke slaw were both good. I grew up eating Memphis style barbecue so I like just a rub on...More

It's not Cooper's (Llano) but it is good. We do not have a lot of barbecue places in West Texas but this is good when you want to eat someone else's barbecue. Try it! They also sell burritos in the morning only. They are good!!!...More

Did a little drive around Monahans to check out lunch options after mid-afternoon check-in at our hotel. Our timing wasn't great for lunch, and was too early for dinner, but Pappy's was open and most of the menu was still available. One of us had...More
