My boyfriend and I have come twice and love everything we have tried. The lady who owns this great place (sophia) is super sweet and greets you with a smile. I would recommend.

From the outside and the size of the place you might think it isn't worth the time, but it is. The food is excellent. Cooked to order. A great variety and a great place for a full lunch. Don't be fooled by the appearance. this is a really great place.

After moving cross-country, Papa G's is always my first stop upon returning to Aurora. The sandwiches are enormous and more than worth their low cost! They literally fill the plate. The italian beef is so juicy and perfectly seasoned. Everything is always expertly prepared and the service is always fast.

We ate at Papa G's for lunch on a Saturday with a group of 8 people. The food was excellent, one of the best beef sandwiches around!! They have a large menu and the prices are pretty standard for the area. On the day we visited, the service was extremely slow. We waited a long time to get our food... More
