That's actually a thing?

And the best Pappadeaux in town (yes, they are different) was over at the Kemah fish market - and you only ordered their specials because they were almost exclusively something pulled off one of the boats that day.

Ike took care of that place - there was nothing left but a few posts in the ground.

In their older restaurants, the Pappas Bros built secret rooms for their staff to hide in when immigration showed up.

Every time I travel to Dallas/Arlington I have to hit Pappadeaux.

That's a terrible limerick.

It's a worse haiku.

God, growing up in Humble, that was the closest. I absolutely hated driving down 1960 to get there.

Pappadeaux is awesome, plain and simple. Really great food and I always start with their lobster bisque which kicks serious butt. My wife and I shared our first kiss out on the patio of our local Pappadeauxs about 20 years ago. Good times.

NathanAllen: Fried everything.


Even the gumbo

Yeah it's a chain.

It's very good for what it is. And deserves all its pub.

I've been fortunate enough to have had some very good servers there. You don't expect that level of courtesy and service at a place in that bracket.

Great, now I'm hungry for some fried gator.

cheap_thoughts: NathanAllen: Fried everything.

I know it's a joke but they make a thick roux gumbo (as opposed to a soupy) and it *does* vary by location for sure.  I think (don't know) that they have methods for "fast-making" it and at other places, the chef comes in in the morning and has a Saucier whip up a roux then the gumbo.  For instance, the Kemah Pappadeaux gumbo was *wildly* different from, say, the Pappadeaux off 290.  I don't know if it was the fresh shrimp that was literally *walked* to the restaurant from one of the boats/stores at the fish market or a steadier hand or what...but it was different.

They have certainly become more "chainy" over the years.  But I don't think I have been to a Pappas place in about 5 years and not too often before that (and only because someone else was going there).  There's just too many local places that are better.  If the Kemah location was still around, I would go because it was always a cut above the rest.  They would have rebuilt it if it wasn't for some crazy land dispute.

Their sister restaurant, Pappasito's, is infinitely better.

My first visit to a Pappadeaux was in Albuquerque last year about two weeks before the Covid hit. I thought the food was better than most chains and I can't wait to visit one again.

I need to look into franchising one of these in Tulsa.

Probably the mexican food one, not the seafood one.

Yes. I thought I made clear that it is what it is.

It will not impress your friends who subscribe to Milk Street and don't know how to cook. Or, perhaps, you.

There used to be a Pappas Pizza in Addison. It was good pizza, laid back, not as pricey as other Pappas joints.
