Benedictine College students are given a discount on Wednesday nights. I went with a group of friends. The place is decorated nicely and the food was great. We had a good time.

Stopped by on a Saturday afternoon, hard to find a place in town that was open or served lunch. Was good, variety of foods, old school sandwiches, onion rings were SO good.

This is an Atchison tradition. Nice quiet spot with great food. Mom and Pop owned and operated for many years.

We stopped with a tour group of 10. Tables were ready for us and food/drink orders were taken quickly and food delivered in a timely manner. Decent prices. Interesting family story on menu. Very good varity of food items on menu. Would stop in again...next time in the area.More

Stayed two nights in Atchison, and stopped here on our first night for dinner. If you want to have a legitimate local experience, this is the place for you. It has the feel of a family gathering. The food was not very good, but, sometimes...a dining experience is more than just the food, right?! What I later learned - and wish I had known before going in - is that the restaurant is supposedly haunted! And for this reason alone, should I find myself in Atchison again, I will probably eat here again. Long story short - stop in if you need a place to eat and want to soak up some of the local flavors and history.More

When we visit my wife's family, Paolucci's is a regular place for all to go. We enjoy the food and the service. They even have spaces for larger gatherings and we have had large birthday and other parties there. Staff is friendly and very prompt...in service. Great for a small town restaurant.More

Great little spot for lunch. Food and service was excellent. We had a large group with us and the staff kept up. Would come back again.

Another one of my favorite Atchison haunts. Friendly bartenders, mellow crowd. Great place to have a drink, some good chicken wings, & watch some sports. Consistently good food! And the stairs... always a good time navigating the stairs!

We've been coming here for years. Great little quiet place with good food! The waitresses are prompt and friendly. The food comes out rather quickly and always in abundance.
