Consistent and reliable

It is better then the average Papa Johns, but still a chain pizza. They do not skimp on the ingredients at all which makes it stand out from the rest. The best of the chains available in the area and always friendly staff, and service is great.

We use the self pick up, we get pizza, bread sticks and sometimes dessert. The pizzas are very good, always hot and fresh when we pick up our order.

Delivery took 1 1/2 hours. When finally arrived, box was smashed and pizza was stuck to the top of the box inside.

After several tries...Im not sure what it is. The pizzas just taste like grocery store pizza. You'd think all pjs are equal, but maybe not. Papa needs drive his muscle car down here to Columbia and whip these folks into shape. I'm sure they're cool, but the food isn't.

I usually like papa John's pizza better than the competitors here in the area. However, the last 2 times I have ordered have been luke warm. Both times, I have picked it up at the store within 25 minutes of ordering. When I picked it up, it had already cooled some. The cheese becomes somewhat pasty. I do like the... More
