We recently went on a Thursday night. We got italian fries with cheese and a garden salad. The salad was bigger than I expected and very fresh. It was a great compliment to the always good italian fries. The food was fast, hot and the...service was good. The only downside, was that annoying flashing game against the wall. At least this time the volume was turned off. KatMore

Love their large pizza/pitcher of pop special. When that is not going I always get their regular size spagetti and meatballs with garlic bread which comes with a side salad. Enough food for two meals. Cheese fries are the best and service is always outstanding....When we are thinking about going to Wausau Mine Co and the drive is a little far we go to Papillons as the two restaurants are connected by family and high quality.More

This place is in a small strip mall and a bit hard to find, unless you know where to look. The food is excellent and the service is better.I recommend Papillions pizza as a must try , if you are in the area.

This family run place is an institution for about 41 years. I love the pizza fries now more than ever. Very good food and service all around.

I tried the Hot Beef Special Sandwich: Shredded beef with mushrooms, fried onions and Swiss cheese served on the softest roll I have EVER had. Not enough french fries and a dill pickle.

I placed an order for pick up of 4 different pizzas, some cheese curds and fried pickles for a family get together. I thought that the pricing was very reasonable and the service when I picked up was very good. The order was ready on...time, nice and hot and the people were extremely nice. The pizza was absolutely amazing! We ordered a couple of the House Special pizzas and Chicken Cordon Bleu. I had a few family members from outside of this area and they commented that it was the best pizza that they've ever tasted! I would agree. I also had left overs to eat after they left! Great job Papillon's. I have a new favorite pizza place!More

I have been coming here since the early 80's as a kid. The Italian fries (with cheese) are always a must when I visit back home. Their pizza s great but those fries...OMG. The marinara with it is fantastic as well. Great prices, friendly WI...service, can't go wrong here!More

Felt like Italian so went to a great place with great food. Love their spaghetti and meatballs plus their cheese covered pizza fries. My wife loves their pizza so she gets a 12" version. We can usually get in without waiting. Only downside is my...wife always got a Mikes hard lemonade or hard soda and as of Friday they no longer carry any of these which seems very strange for a bar not to stock some kind of a hard soda or hard lemonade.More

The absolute cheeseyest pizza I have ever had. Pitchers of beer and great Italian fries. Our waitress was really great too. Highly recommend it. It was hard to find in the mall. Alfredo pizza was amazing
