Pizza crust better for a dessert pizza. Visit Bella Luna, Roma or Caruso's for better pizza. Have had their pizza multiple times when order at place or work or church gathering. Local pizzerias do a much better job. Go local and avoid chains.

Pizza is great and if you sign up to receive emails, you can almost always buy pizzas at a discount. One of our favorite places to buy pizza.

We had gotten to the hotel late and didn't feel like going back out. Decided to order a pizza. Always have liked Papa John's in the past. Took over an hour for delivery and then pizza was so greasy the bottom of the box was soaked. It was quite pricey as well, $18 for a medium cheese/pepperoni! We ended up... More

Among the chains, Papa Johns is my preferred choice. I placed an order on line at 11:15 one evening, and my pizza was delivered piping hot within 25 minutes. Just as I had ordered. The delivery driver was very friendly and cheerful, even making such a late delivery. I also ordered garlic knots for the first time, and they were... More

Why write a review of a chain pizza place right? Because of fabulous customer service. I had a huge online order of 16 pizzas. The website was giving me problems. Through the whole experience I had to call the Ephrata location multiple times. Corey was helpful every time. They had the order ready early with a smile and pizzas were... More

manufactured sauce with a strange flavor and cheese that doesn't taste like cheese makes me think I'd rather eat the box. Almost any local pizza shop makes better pizza for a better price. BETTER INGREDIENTS, BETTER PIZZA, ANYWHERE BUT PAPA JOHNS

PAPA'S is a cookie cutter type of store. Their business model is straight forward and no nonsense. By keeping things streamlined and business operations exact, their products deliver much better than average for franchise restaurant food. They've never had "dine in" service which allows them to concentrate on the quality. Never ever been let down.

I love their Pizza and hot wings! Today I tried their two sausage pizza and it was excellent! Their hot wings aren't so hot where it burns your mouth. They are just spicy, and I love it that way; and I love all the different sauces you can choose from too. Garlic, ranch, honey mustard. Yum yum! Here's a tip:... More
