Papa's Fish and Soul Food

2662 W. Lincoln Ave. Anaheim, CA 92801 | Anaheim | 714-252-3052

Location Description:

Papa’s Fish & Soul Food is an Anaheim restaurant that serves soul food. The large grill just outside, as foreboding as an oil drum, shows its seriousness at its task of teaching OC what good barbecue is, and the ribs are a Delta dream. Weekends bring gumbo and jambalaya until it’s done; sweet-potato pie and sweet tea are made fresh--and are finished almost as soon as they’re prepared. Golden hush puppies, massive po’ boys, fluffy cornbread, slabs of fried catfish: Papa’s is an eater’s dream. But what’s best about Papa’s is it’s fusion food.
