Went here for the 2nd time with the same people, except one. 3 people ordered coffee and asked for a refill. Instead of bringing a pot of coffee to the table or bring fresh cups the waitress wanted to take all the cups to the back and fill them, stating "I promise not to mix them up" The blue cheese dressing is awful. Again the salads and breadstick are not very good at all. As a whole we all decided the establishment is overpriced and the wait for the food is too long. We will not return and I would not recommend to anyone..

My memories of Papa Dels stuffed pizza were of ooey, gooey, cheesy filled slices of happiness. This time not so much. We ordered a plain pepperoni and one special, both stuffed. Sad to say there was more flavorless bread crust than anything else. The ingredients (what little there were of them) stopped a good 1-1 1/2 inches from the crust, resulting in thick crust, empty space, thick crust. Very disappointed

Pappa Del has opened a new place in west Champaign at the Village at the Crossing. There pizza are as good as the one on campus. Great sausage, cheese and sauce on the thin crust. I also know their deep dish are great--my daughter regularly takes a couple back to St Louis when she visits--however, we are not deep dish fans.
