A wonderful place to fill up on a wonderful chicken & egg breakfast after church on Sundays! The home grown hash browns are second to nobody's! It always seems that Judy is there to refill your coffee cup, water, or what ever. Awesome place anytime!...More

Everything in Spartanburg was great until we went for breakfast at Papa's. Service was the worst I have ever had in my life. Absolutely shameful. Will never be back. Sad.

As many years as I have been in the Spartanburg area, I never made it here. I was very satisfied with the food and service. Old-time diner feel.

Service was a little slow but the food was good. Had their Livermush which is actually fried liver pudding. Fried green tomatoes is a must.
