My sister was hungry and it was approaching lunchtime so we decided to go to Papa Joes... really awesome Italian food.. love the BBQ Chicken Pizza, regular pizza with a ton of toppings, meatballs are excellent and chicken parmesan is good too... delicious and freshly made!! Give it a try... old school homemade Italian taste!

Though the atmosphere is non existent the food is usually good. They serve the best bread with their meals, plus a tasty basic garden salad. The pasta dishes with the red or alfredo sauces are top notch. Do not order their prime rib though, the one I had was about 40% fat and not worth the money. Other than that,... More

Very satisfied...plenty of GOOD Italian food without sticker shock...Friendly, attentive service but not intrusive...Atmosphere leaves a little to be desired but the food makes up for it X 2. Beer and vino too!!!

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
