Had the special and the food is amazing. Everything we ordered was simply delicious. The hand tossed pizza beats any pizza joint in the area and the entrees were a healthy portion, tastes amazing and the prices are very reasonable. We will definitely be back!!!

The only bad part of the experience was an older woman in the back screaming and cussing in addition to shotty service. Quite frankly I think they need to get rid of the wait staff and hire new.

We took takeout pizza one night while staying at Chetola. Papa Joe's was fast and a great pie. We had meatlovers and veggie and both were great. If you eat in, they have PBR on tap for 1.50 a pint. What a deal.

We had a party of 5 adults and 2 kids. when we arrived around 6, it was crowded but you could see tables available. Unfortunately the hostess was told not to even seat us at a table until the kitchen caught up a little. Once we were seated we were able to order and everyone ate well. we even bought a bottle of their salad dressing to go. Kids and adults were full and happy.

The food is typical Italian, the sauce is chunky tomato which is not my style but it was ok....I did not get indigestion like I thought I would. The "famous" onion soup had grease floating on the sides around the cheese. The salad was luke warm...really lukewarm salad>!?? But....the wait staff
We asked for a table instead of a booth so she sat us in the kids section. Needless to say it was noisy, but the waitress didn't even bring our selections someone else did. She did not bring the soup and salad until we were half way through the meal...really it was not at a busy time.....if it were I would understand.....but overall.....don't go.
