Go for the food AND the friends you will meet here. Papouli's has a cult following. And that is because the food is always good, never an 'off' night - because the owners are ALWAYS there! And that is what makes it so special - to be greeted like family. Everything on the menu is wonderful. The wine choices...not so... More

Had Sunday lunch in this quaint hole in the wall with lots of local flavor and patrons. 7-10 Sunday specials. None of which cost over $10. Two of my favorites are the sliced prime rib and Springfield style cashew chicken. Google that if you have never heard of Springfield cashew chicken. The meal starts with a generous salad with my...

Lived in the area for years, just tried it. We went for our anniversary. We were treated like family. Food is great, margaritas are potent. Nice family owned restaurant. It was a little expensive but we had a lot of food. You simply must try. Service was impeccable.

We were treated like royalty on our anniversary. The food, as always, was superb. Papouli's was the first restaurant we tried when we moved to Reeds Spring 17 years ago and they have been excellent or superb every year since. We would HIGHLY recommend Papouli's.

Have been meaning to try for years. Finally went with my wife for our anniversary. It was great. I had the Greek Plate. Enjoyed everything especially the lamb. Service was great and owners treated us like family.

I have lived in the area many years and had not visited Papoulis. I had family in town that wanted to eat here so we stopped in. My sister had the gyro and loved it. Our other meals were huge and average. The fried chicken meal could feed 4. The shrimp scampi was so average I did not take home... More

We had Gyros and substituted salads for the fries. It was good but not stellar. The location is quaint but the restaurant appears to be trying to fill the locals need for all types of restaurants. The lunch menu was ham, cashew chicken and sweet and sour chicken. We asked for a dinner menu. If you are a food network... More

Every time we come to Branson we have to come to this restaurant. The staff is so friendly and so wonderful. The food is top notch and like no other. I would suggest getting the prime rib or cashew chicken. The place is small and parking can be a challenge, I would advise to call for reservations. The owners, Thomas... More
