Visit Pappys when I'm on that side of 210. Pappys has a great selection for lunch - from gumbo to po boys to plate lunches. Service time is average, but slower if busy. Staff is always nice. Clean bathrooms. Good food for a good price.

Great chance to sit among the locals and enjoy the daily specials. Great po-boys including roast beef and fried shrimp. Delicious burgers and the largest cookies ever!

This is a family owned business where you have a variety of items on the menu. Usually the owner, Gary, is at the counter taking your order. Great place for a home cooked meal such as Shrimp Stew, which is one of my favorites. Fast...More
