THE FOOD IS AUTHENTIC! The plates are platters. The chips are paper thin and melt in your mouth. The service is professional, polite, speedy, knowledgeable, helpful, and nice. The place is clean, and neat, with a homey atmosphere. I ordered the gyro sandwich and it...More

Really like this pizza. The cheese and sauce they use is really good. Didn't think much of eating here after driving by, but I'm glad I gave it a shot. They have a few different items on the menu and really would like to try...More

I was feeling Stromboli, everybody else was feeling something else. Where better than Papa's where they have a wide selection? I personally enjoyed a Stromboli and Greek salad, delicious! We've been eating here for years and I've never had a bad experience.
