Pappy's has been around since June 17, 2005.....that was the date that we, Steve & Michelle Margulies, bought the original Stan & Lou's. It was quite a change for a couple of mortgage banking professionals. Steve left his "day job" to run Pappy's.....Michelle was keeping hers....just in case!
We changed the name from Stan & Lou's a few months into our ownership so we could create our own identity. My son, Brian, used to call me Pappy on occasion and after working with several ideas suggested by many generous-thinking people, we went with the name, Pappy's Grill & Pub.
We've maintained the core menu from the original owners. In fact, we named two burgers (Stan's Burger and Lou's Burger) after them and they remain on the menu today. Our philosophy has been relatively simple: Offer customers a clean, pleasant place to eat with reasonable prices. We figured that such a concept would work. We also figured that adding Steve's New Yorker personality to the mix would make it all interesting.
