Pappas Meat Co.
12010 East Fwy
This Pappas-family-run joint is more casual and family friendly than the upscale landmark (Pappas Bros. Steakhouse). You’ll be greeted at the door by the fresh meat counter showing off rosy goods. Expect the classic cuts, from a bone-in rib eye to a petite filet -- plus generous sides and rich starters. If it’s swine you pine, choose the juicy double-cut pork chop. Heck, you can even get pot roast or fried green tomatoes at this Southern diner, the ideal spot for a rowdy bunch who wasn’t invited to Mama’s for Sunday supper.
