“Nelson”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012

Our family has lived in Champaign since 1973. Papa Del's if a favorite of ours. The thin pizza is best as the Sicilian pizza is too thick. It has a hard crust and contains too much dough.

“Expected more”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2012

Wasnt the best deep dish but still pretty good. Service was really slow and the server got our drinks wrong. Pizza took a while, as expected so no complaints there. You get your moneys worth though.

“Worth the drive!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2012

I live completely on the other side of town but Pops pizza is so unique it is worth the drive. Great sausage, sauce and crust. Papadels is very unique and has a great pan pizza.

“A fan since 1975!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2012

When I was a student, it was the best in town. Still is!
Their pan pizza is state of the art. Don't miss their sausage either.
Great sauce, never get's old!
