We stayed in Spartansburg for a wedding and went to Papa's the first day while we waited to check in to our hotel. It was so good that we went back the next two days for breakfast.

We've stopped here before and had a decent meal. Breakfast is popular. This is strictly a grill place so don't expect too much. I'm a pancake man and like blueberry pancakes.

Inexpensive restaurant- an institution in downtown Spartanburg. Frequented by locals, police, etc. and students. Not a destination, but if you are in the area it is an ok place to get a meal.

Loved the friendly atmosphere and the terrific turkey jalapeño omelette. Will definitely go back there again when I'm back in town. The service was great. Remember you have to bring cash, they don't except credit cards or checks. Very reasonable price.

Serve was great - happy staff and right on top of everything. Never had to ask for more water - kept an eye on the table. Food came quickly and was very good.

Thank TOM S
