It's simple: you'll love this place. Good comfort food and burgers---especially those sweet sourdough buns (maybe from Sheila Parton?). Everything is yummy and there a daily specials as well. Problem: this restaurant is closing soon and reopening about 15 minutes west on I-10 at Dairy...More

A little bit of southern comfort and tex mex is what at you'll get at this great little interstate side road stop. From fall off the bone ribs to a great homemade burger you can't miss.

Many places stumble when they have a menu as large and varied as Pappy's, but this established Katy Fwy. cafe delivers well on its promise of "Texas Comfort Food" no matter what you order. Add a full bar with a {slightly} above average beer selection,...More

This year Pappy's has become a regular stop. I particularly like the salmon and chicken tenders (good honey mustard) and any dish with their cream gravy(I think they use lard, yum). The stuffed jalapeños are tasty. I get a chicken tender salad when I want...More
