Located in strip-mall, this delightful casual restaurant has very good menu choices of Italian dishes at reasonable price.

I've ate here since the late 1980's. My parents still live nearby so when I visited them today we decided to go to Papa Joe. My parents said there was new ownership, but the only change I could discern was the fact the heavy curtains over the windows were now gone and you could see outside. We were escorted to... More

I see the remarks about the new ownership of this restaurant and have to say there was a brief time I would have agreed with them. But the last 3-4 times I have eaten here, it has been back to the previous high standards. In fact, the wonderful spaghetti sauce they have always had seemed even better and when I... More

We have eaten at this restaurant several times and more recently we have ordered carry out. Very recently we decided to order carry out once again and discovered that this restaurant was under new ownership and management. We ordered the exact same dinners that we had ordered previously, but our new young order taker didn’t appear to be very familiar... More

The "new" owners have made changes and they are not for the good of patrons. The calzones are crispy on the edges, almost burnt, and the portion size of the 1/2 order of lasagna does not even fill the serving dish as it used to do. Cheesesticks and bread have been changed and not for the better. One plus, the... More

The service is great. I go here every time I'm visiting the Indy area. Lasagna is to die for, bread is beyond words and their portions are huge.

I recently had dinner on a Sunday afternoon and ate in the bar. It is nice and quiet with great décor. The salads and lasagna were wonderful.

My husband and I used to enjoy the piano music on the weekends a few years ago, and the food and service was always great! However, we went tonight, and the service was awful!!! We received our appetizer and salads (which are not NEAR as good as before, miss the mozzarella cubes on the salad) before our bread, which I... More

Went here on the way home after a long day out. Service was exemplary, food was excellent and there was a nice variety. Kids found something on the menu thay would eat too! Atmosphere was much nicer than Olive Garden and other restraunts like it.

Many places can cook well. But not many know how to value customers. Papa Joe's is a long time family run restaurant. The staff and owners make the experience personable, warm, friendly, and make you feel like mama's cooking for you and waiting on you! We take many of our professional clients there for lunch. Hey! Itza classy place! All... More
