Although this restaurant has NO atmosphere, it is what it serves that counts. Whether eating in or take out, the food is old fashioned and consistent. The thin,hand tossed chicken pesto pizza is the best pizza we've had, anywhere! Every dish we've had over the last 20 years has been well made and tasty!

Papa Joe's offers all types of Italian food, from pizza to complete dinners and all in-between. This trip, we chose a pizza with thick crust, one of three offered (thin, thick and deep dish). My wife spent the waiting time selecting other items to try on future trips. Good food, good value and very pleasant service. We'll go again!

For a great snack or full meal paps has you covered. I personally love their papa fries (with cheese!) because they are sliced potatoes and not your typical run of the mill French fries. The staff is always friendly and the food is always fresh,hot and delicious. Everything is made from scratch and it shows as its a true authentic... More

I ended up eating the Sunday night dinner buffet last night. It's hard to find a restaurant where the prices are reasonable and I was craving Italian without breaking the bank. I called Papa Joe's and they said they have a $10.99 buffet on Sundays. The price sounded good and I was super hungry. The meatballs were very good and... More

We are very glad we found this place last summer on a side trip to Pittsfield. We live about 45 minutes away, and between our house and Papa Joe's, there are literally dozens of Pizza and Italian establishments that we could go to and save ourselves a little time, but no way. After our first visit, we were hooked and... More

The Berkshires is supposed to be the area to get the best "Hot Oveb Grinders." And Papa Joe's is supposed to serve the best ones in the area. So, off we went in search of a grinder. Well, it turns out that a grinder is nothing more than what we in New Jersey call a hot sub or a hot... More

Over the years we have had a great food, bad to ok service, and will never order delivery from them...odd but we have never yea never gotten the right order. With that said the food is really good call, order and pick up or sit and relax on a sunday evening for the buffet.

The pizza is delicious for take-out or a sit down. Papa Joe's suits the smallest budget, yet is clean, comfortable and the staff friendly. Our favorite casual dinner place.
