Authentic Southern cooking. Ribs and all the sides come together for a taste experience seldom found outside the deep south. Wood-fired smokers outside in the back yard draw people in from blocks away. Tantalizing smells that pay off with delicious tastes inside. Full bar, eclectic decor, wonderful friendly staff. Pappa has passed on, but his spirit and his soul (food)... More

Took about 30 minutes to get a seat and order but it's well worth the wait. Drinks are strong and food is delicious. Definitely a southern style restaurant if that's what your looking for.

I recently moved to Arizona and the thing I miss most about Eugene is Papa's! So good. Very reasonably priced, as well.

We came to Papa's Soul Food on the recommendation of friends, and we couldn't have had a better meal! We came on a very busy evening but had no trouble getting a table. The service was good but the food was a definite highlight. The menu is so extensive that I am itching to go back. I had the fried... More

Summer or winter, the food is consistent, but the atmosphere is completly different. When the sun is shining, the outside deck is the place to be! When it's raining best to be inside. Summer weekends include soul and/or blues in the garden!

First time at Papa's and we will be back. Service was amazing and the food blow my mind. Pulled pork sandwich my husband said was best he ever had. The fried chicken was crispy and juicy. And don't forget the southern kool-aid fizzy cocktail to pair with your food. We are happy and stuffed.

We arrived around 3pm on a Saturday. Walked right in with no wait. This is the time to go! My 22yr old son ordered the Briscut with a double order of Mac and Cheese-OMG THAT MAC!. I ordered the Pulled Pork Sandwich with a side of Papa's Fries. Everything was amazing! Papa would be proud.

Papa's is a classic southern style BBQ place. Prices are reasonable and portions are good size. I have tried a variety of things and was quite pleased, even the fried okra was good.

My father and I, both natives of South Carolina, visited this restaurant looking for some truly Southern cooking in this northwestern city. The fried chicken satisfied my demanding father, which is an accomplishment. I was less satisfied with the barbecued chicken: felt like just a pouring of strong barbecue sauce over the meat, and that sauce wasn't much to my... More

My first time at this restaurant. Every barbeque restaurant usually has a "sampler" option where you get 3 items .... brisket, ribs, chicken ...... I had this with 2 sides (black eyed peas and okra). Everything was super. Flavorful and moist. Not everyone knows how to barbeque well, without having to try to cover up "dry" meat with their sauce.... More
