We have lived in Woodridge for over 36 years, and hadn't tried Papa's Pizza Place until recently. First and foremost, the food is good. Our waitress was right to suggest that the dinner salad was large enough for my wife and I to share. Our thin crust pizza was fresh, hot, crispy and flavorful. Papa's is a family-friendly neighborhood place... More

We love Papa's and have for years. This is the best thin crust pizza around. The crust is nice and crunchy, maybe because they use the older oven and not the conveyor type. Dine in or carry out both are great. If you dine in try the dinner salad with lots of vegetables added.

This is a great place for pizza and other Italian specialties. We go about 3 miles to get the carry-out pizza even tho we have places closer, this is our favorite. We really like that they cut the pizza into small square pieces, rather than the triangle wedges. Our friends always like it when we get it too.

The food here is really good. As others have mentioned, the pizza is great and the few other items we've tried have all been really good. The only problem we've ever had is that the service can move glacialy slow at times (even when it's not a rush hour). Once the food comes out, we've always been happy, though I... More

My husband and I have been enjoying Papa's Pizza Place for well over 15 years. Papa's Special with onions only on half is the best. We've stopped after walks and after movies. Glass of wine and a pizza ends the day perfectly. Any member of the family no matter what age should be able to find something to enjoy.

Thank Carol D
