“Great location - decent food for the money”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

Easy access from the Town Place Suites right across the parking lot. Good / fast service. Good food quality. Good portion size for the money. Small but decent bar. Local beers on-tap. Very friendly wait-staff....attentive and funny. Great experience overall.

“Great pizza, everything else is ok.......”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

The pizza is awesome. The right amount of cheese and a fair amount of toppings. What makes it special though is the dough for the crust. It is crispy on the bottom, fluffy in the middle, and not overbearing. It is really really really good. The rest of the food is mediocre, so if you go, just order the pizza....you will NOT be disappointed by the pizza.

“First time I regret trying a new place.”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

Had dinner at Papa Joe's for the first time, and we wont be back. We went inside the restaurant and immediately asked if we could sit outside, it was really dark inside. I ordered an ice tea and my husband a beer. They brought the beer first and then the unsweetened tea. I asked for sugar or splenda. They came back 10 minutes later saying they forgot about it. I also had a hard time deciding what I wanted to order and the waiter wasn't very helpful. I ordered a personal pizza and my husband a lasagna, the food was tasteless. Overall we didn't enjoy the experience.

Very good Italian food. Cheap kids menu. Interesting decor and tables, fun atmosphere. Right next to campus with outdoor seating. I would highly recommend.
