Meet Pappie

    Pappy Jr here to tell you a bit about our Pappy. For as long as I can remember, folks have told Pappy he needed to open a restaurant. When the OG Pappy, Brian Mauller decided to sell the business in 2018 I knew it was the perfect starting point to give Dad his creative outlet. In 2 short years he took the menu of mac, pulled pork, baked beans, and slaw, and expanded it to over 12 main entree’s and 8 sides! 

   When Pappy isn't playing in the kitchen he’s spending his time with his Grand Babies! When you come to Pappies don’t be surprised to be greeted by one or more kiddos as everyday is bring your kid to work day per Pappy’s request!   

   Pappy’s number one priority is family and we all follow his lead.  At Pappies, we want you to come Hungry, and leave Family!
