Wonderful place! We have breakfast at least once every week here! Papa is always on site when we visit. Staff is ALWAYS friendly and courteous.

My family and I have patronized this restaurant three times over the last 6 months. Service has never been great, today was the worst. Lack of drink refills (none), no extra napkins, wrong bill delivered to our table, cash register staff does not speak English well enough to answer questions/take concerns, and wrong orders. Food is just okay (I have... More

Papa's is a breakfast and lunch type of dinner. Breakfast has the pancakes, waffles, eggs, bacon, and coffee all covered. I haven't been here often, but the service is fast, friendly, and good. I ordered 2 pancakes with bacon and eggs and it was out to me in about 5 minutes. The cost was less than $10 including the tax... More

We were staying in Indianapolis for the weekend at Fort Harrison Inn and had been here before. The quality, speed and freshness were the same as the first visit. This is one of the few breakfasts that the American fries tasted like real potatoes and not like oil. The server was very friendly and kept the coffee full.

I'm always searching for local diners that have the old-fashioned appeal of home-cooked, traditional food. But am usually disappointed by dirty, run-down restaurants serving pre-made frozen food that's deep fried. I was NOT disappointed at Papa's! It is the real deal. Cute little diner that's clean; friendly waitresses who keep your drinks filled; and platters of delicious food at a... More

Sometimes you just want a good ole fashioned breakfast. I had a very tasty special: Bacon, Eggs, Pancakes, Potatoes and Coffee 5.99. It was delicious. Many other options to choose from; however this hit the spot. I'm not sure if that special is available on just certain days of the week or not.

Good Mexican Skillet, good pancakes, good service, inexpensive coffee, and nice decor. Definitely a good non-chain choice.

i love these Greek, family owned pancake houses. I know they're everywhere, but I can't get enough of them! The food is always good. The portions are amazing. The menu is huge! I do have one question though...why is the matriarch behind the cash register always so unfriendly in these places? Papa's is right off the interstate, however the parking... More
