“Overpriced mediocrity”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013 via mobile

Ordered pizza and after a long wait received a mediocre pizza with over 50 percent of the bottom blackened. Coke was flat. Service was good. Large fan caused background noise resulting in conversation being a problem since a member of the party had hearing aides.

“Good pizza, no frills”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

We are visiting Blowing Rock for the first time and were feeling like pizza. When traveling, we prefer to find local places we can't eat at every day. This appears to be the only local pizza joint in Blowing Rock. It's not fancy, but many of the best pizza places are not. We had a basic pizza - really good thin crust, tasty sauce and toppings. Service was good as well. If you are looking for something other than pizza, Papa Joe's had a pretty full menu of other Italian treats. We will visit again when in Blowing Rock.

“Overpriced, bad service, below average”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013

Went in over the 4th of July weekend, and it was like they had never seen customers before. The place was basically empty, but you'd think it was a packed house with the service we received. Saw our waitress maximum of three times during our meal including taking the order. Pizza was average, slighty below average. Wife's meal wasn't any different. Save your time and money.

“Inexpensive and friendly.”

Family of 6 ate here for dinner. Service was good. Food average. Prices were very reasonable. They charge for bread before dinner but dinners are served with garlic toast.
