Since the demise of Knights On Main Street this place is doing breakfasts. Cost high, service not good, portions miserable, what I ordered was not what I got but as I had waited so long I decided to take what I was given. This is not what I have come to expect of America :(

We were traveling the blue ridge and got hungry so we got off and found by accident this cute little restaurant. Food was very good, our waitress Sheila was fast, friendly And kept our drinks filled. Would stop here again. Lunch menu had a good amount of choices and priced reasonably well

The staff was very friendly and the restaurant itself was nice. We got a bread basket and pizza. The bread was ok, not something I would order again. The pizza was ok as well, not bad but nothing to make a special drive for. All in all it was just average.

Papa Joes is a fabulous Italian restaurant. The moment I walked in the door it felt like home. Joe and his staff are all super friendly. My favorite part about eating there is the yummy homemade desserts. Overall every time I go to Joes I have great food, service, and a wonderful experience.

Authentic cooking with real people. Immediately as I entered I felt like a regular. The Homemade desserts are amazing. Joe himself will come out and strike up a conversation. Don't be surprised to see the Fire and Police departments eating there, enjoying the food: you know it's got to be good if they are there!!!

Food was cold and only had one waitress for the entire restaurant. Service slow for us but the locals seemed to get excellent service. Since Blowing Rock is a tourist town you would think the service would be great. Had a meatball sub and it was filled with three extra large meatballs, whole. Very messy. Should slice the meatballs.

I love Papa Joe's. I have never had anything there that I didn't like. I like the idea of the small town atmosphere where when you walk in the owner and the staff call you by name. They know your likes and dislikes and make sure you are well taken care of. I recommend this place to people all the... More
