One of our local favorites. A Blowing Rock staple for years. Pizza is always made with fresh ingredients and home made sauce. The crispy crust supreme is loaded with toppings and can be customized to your taste. Had ours "to go" tonite. Have also enjoyed...More

I'm white, my mom is black and it was very obvious our waitress didn't want to serve her. I forced her to acknowledge my mom first by ignoring her until she addressed my mom. Two other tables came in after us got their food before...More

I should have paid attention to the reviews. I stopped in to get a take out menu and was greeted by a very nice waitress who gave me the menu. I later called in for a large cheese pizza - BIG MISTAKE!!!! The crust was...More

Love eating at Papa Joe's! It's a regular stop for me and my family. The pizzas are very tasty and recently I enjoyed a green salad (fresh) with grilled Mahi-mahi on top. Delicious! My favorite though is the Chicken Puttenesca. The chicken is always juicy,...More
