The Subway of takeout pizza joints embraces fresh ingredients and store-made crusts. – In Short
These bright white storefronts are accented with green and red details and photos of the chain's boyish founder. The simple menu focuses on standard pies and chicken-centric specialty pizzas--the Hawaiian BBQ, BBQ chicken, and bacon and chicken club--each topped with fresh ingredients like baby portobello mushrooms and roma tomatoes. A selection of sides includes bread sticks, cheese sticks, chicken strips and a handful of dipping sauces.
Avoid! – Papa John's is, unfortunately, something of a victim of its own design. The pizza is average, not great - but it's the delivery that will really get you. The last time I ordered from them, I waited more than two hours for one little pizza - two hours AFTER their confident "it will be there in 45 minutes!" had passed. Their crust is a bit too doughy, and their pizzas are small for the price.
Still, I suppose if it's the only thing nearby, it's acceptable - but you might want to pick it up yourself.
Stick to Pizza Hut – Papa John's Pizza is rivaled in bad chain pizza only by Pizza Outlet. Stick to the real delivery pizza--Pizza Hut or Domino's. For non-chain pizza go to Sorrento's or Mineo's, and stay away from Antoon's, the O, and Larry & Carol's AT ALL COSTS. You have been warned.
pizzamania – i think the pizza is very good and the price is very affordable.
papa's #1 pick – The best pizza around that has become a food chain....ie besides the ma n pa shops
fresh, hot – nice fresh toppings, clean, nice service, take out only, didn't have rest room, makes you wonder were the employees go.
Hunger Strike – How can anybody like this cheap disguise of pizza? Put some sauce on cardboard followed by wax that resembles cheese. Rather live in Bangledesh.
Splendiferous Pizza – Papa John's Pizza is consistanly and undoubtedly the most bestest pizza I have every eaten. Their bread sticks are also very delish. No matter what Papa John's location you go to, the food is always awsome!
