After 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.
