We have been going to Papa Joes for as long as it has been situated in Hamilton Road. We returned there for a family birthday celebration tonight. The service isn't as good. The restaurant wasn't busy but it took about 40 minutes for our food to arrive. The waitresses were just about courteous but that was it. The staff used... More

The staff are welcoming , friendly and attentive. The food was served with no delays and with a smile & chat. I had... More

Offering a wide range of dishes to suit most tastes, influenced by the flavours of New Orleans, Louisiana. Good tasty food at reasonable prices. This is a BYO establishment that helps to keep the bill down.

Having been a good few yrs since we last visited we decided to call in on a Sat lunchtime. Not too busy and seated and drinks served right away. The place is as good as we remembered, the service as quick and the food hot and nicely presented. The chicken sante fe was excellent and the chicken burger with pepper... More

My family were on a visit and we decided to go out for an evening meal, 4 adults and 2 children. After much discussion we decided on Pap Joe's which we had known about for years but were afraid to try as we thought it's food would be too spicy for our taste. We were persuaded to try it as... More

Visited Papa Joe's last night with a friend and as per usual it didn't disappoint. We were promptly sested and given enough time to review the menu before ordering. As it's a BYO restaurant I'd brought a bottle of prosecco so we had enjoyed maybe a glass of this before the food was served. We went for mains and desserts... More

We were recently here and I have to say I was less than impressed .... the place is very tired and could do with refurbishment ..... décor is stuck in the 80's, carpet up to the toilets is threadbare and it could do with a deep clean. The food was okay to be fair but the service was very slow... More

I have eaten in Papa Joe's many times and can honestly say I have never had a bad meal, have never experienced bad service or had a reason to complain. Steak Santa Fe which I get more or less every time I go is always cooked perfectly. Really cant fault the place what you see is what you get. Good... More
