While pizza is good, not sure it is any better than and certainly is not as imaginative as the brick-oven pizza at Brixx down the street. Papa Del's is a large, mass-production joint with the tiring, all-to-common-in-Champaign, sports bar vibe.

Has great deep dish pizza. Marinara sauce was the best!!! Salads are also really really good. Even the thin pizza is great.
