HistoryAfter spending his life working in area restaurants, Paw-Paw was encouraged by his family to start his own restaurant. His grandchildren(he has 18!) called every place he worked “Paw-Paw’s Place,” so it was only natural that he made this the name of his restaurant. Paw-Paw opened the doors to Paw-Paw’s Place on July 1, 2007. He made great food, always choosing quality ingredients over price. He loved his customers and making them meals they enjoyed. In 2014, Paw-Paw’s daughter bought the restaurant so that he could retire. Paw-Paw’s Place continues to do business the way he started it: providing the best possible food with excellent customer service. In 2019 Paw-Paw’s Grandson bought the restaurant to continue on his grandfathers legacy, and continue to serve the best food in town to his customers and friends.
