Papoo’s: A Traditional Joint with Tasty Treats
Papoo’s Hot Dog Show and Diner opened in 1949. Papoo means grandpa in Greek, a charming fact reflected in the warm and friendly atmosphere the restaurant has maintained for over six decades. This “little neighborhood tradition” has grown from just hot dogs to so much more.
Papoo’s is on the rise thanks to Leona, the owner since 2007. She refurbished the restaurant and expanded the deli-style menu to offer an exciting variety of entrees including fresh salads prepared with a variety of baby greens. Locals rave about their traditional coleslaw and potato salad prepared fresh daily.
But how could a place call itself the “Hot Dog Show” without boasting the best dog in town? Well the best is now here. It is snappy, all beef, juicy, and unbelievably yummy. This new addition is “The LA Dog,” made exclusively for Papoo’s by Red Hot Chicago. If you want a real treat, it’s waiting for you.
In addition to a delicious assortment of traditional hamburgers, Papoo’s now offers healthy elk burgers, which are low in fat and high in flavor. What a great alternative to beef! Try it with mushrooms, Swiss, and a side of sweet potato fries.
Best of all, Papoo’s now serves breakfast all day. Enjoy eggs benedict, fresh asparagus omelets, pastrami scrambles, pancakes, sparkling Mimosas, eye-opening Bloody Mary’s, as well as world-famous Diamond Bakery rye bread, bagels and pastries. Papoo’s offers great fun, great food and great prices.
Papoo’s, located at 4300 W. Riverside Dr. in Burbank, is surely not just for hot dogs any more. For more information, call (818) 846-1511, or visit www.papoos1949.com
