Been going here for 35+ years, back with my great grandparents. Food is always good and service friendly. Specials are nearly always the same and early bird meals are as inexpensive as you can get in a restaurant. So glad to see that its still open every time I visit.

For the price you pay and the selection you get on the early bird, You Can't Beat Them! We usually stop ther on Saturdays after we go to afternoon Mass at Our Lady Star Of The Sea Church on beachside.

My husband love to go to Pappas' for breakfast on the weekend. Such great food, fresh and hot and very reasonable prices. The country fried steak and eggs is my favorite !! My husband loves the ham steak and eggs and usually has to bring back half of the ham as it's a generous portion.

The coleslaw was some of the best we've ever had. The cheese burgers were huge, and so good. The food was all a good temperature and fresh. The onion rings were also well made. The service was fast, and the waitress was so sweet. She was the only one working all the cars, and still made a point to be... More

Curbside service is the hallmark of Pappa's. The food is what you expect from a diner, plain but plentiful.

My wife and I finally found a place that was open and serving on Sunday the day after Hurricane Matthew blew through New Smyrna Beach. Yes they were packed, yes the staff (heaven knows how they managed to come in and work) were slammed, and yes it took just a bit longer than usual getting food out. But they did... More

This nostalgia drive in dive is a landmark in New Smyrna Beach. As a child, I'd beg my Mom to bring me a Pappas burger for lunch at school. School was across the street and up a few blocks. As a teenagers with a driver's license; it was always a favorite late night snack for the munchies. Hamburgers, Fries, Fried... More
