“YUMMO!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2011

We are "locals' and we love the whole experience of dining at Papa Joe's. Joe and Cindy are great folks. The wait staff are all very friendly. Joe comes out to greet you making you feel welcome at Papa Joe's. The catfish, a favorite, is crispy and delicious. We love the thin crust pizza and their salads with the homemade Italian dressing. And, if you want to compare chicken wings you won't find any better, anywhere! All that and more, keeps us coming back. Yummo!!!

“Great local restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2011

My family and I have been to Papa Joe's many times over the years and have always loved it. The food is always consistently great and there is something for everyone! Papa Joe is always there and you just feel like you're one of the locals where you're there. ...actually a lot of locals are always there. We'll continue to visit for years!

“Great Place for Families”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2011

Went to look at the leaves in Blowing Rock. The whole area is beautiful and we ate at Papa Joe's before leaving town. The kids love meeting Papa Joe and he seemed to enjoy talking with them. The pizza was great and the price was reasonable. We will be back!

Food was pretty bad. For the price, I would not recommend.

“Wow..great meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2011

Have been visiting Blowing Rock for twenty years. This year was our first time for Papa Joe's. I had read about it on their website. Our meal was absolutely fantastic. We had a white pizza and baked ziti. It was true Italian and we were completely pleased with it all. We topped it off with a cannoli. We went back a second night too. Service was excellent. This is now our favorite restaurant in Blowing Rock.
