We visited Papa Del's on a Saturday night. The atmosphere is great - sports games on and the service was very friendly and attentive. The challenge that I have for this pizza place is that the wait time for a thin crust pizza is over...More

I'm from Chicago, so it's very hard to match Chicago pizza, even if you came from Chicago and started a pizza joint someplace else. The pizza wasn't bad by any means but I guess I'm used to a little more flavor in them. The sauce...More

This is the only place in CU to get Chicago-style pizza as of now. It's really excellent quality with great, fresh ingredients and the best cheese! The crusts are unimaginably good.

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.

We stopped in here after an Illini basketball game. It was busy but certainly not packed at all. We asked for a table for 2 & were told we'd have a wait. We pre-ordered our pizza, a medium thin crust 3 topping. We waited at...More

Came here with business associates for my first taste of authentic deep-dish pizza. Enjoyed the atmosphere of a concerted factory, and had delicious sausage-pepperoni slices-- that needed a knife and fork! Reminded me of what my mom made as I was growing up.

Our friends wanted to go try this place so we went. I'm not a big fan of the deep dish Chicago style pizza. We did order one that was pepperoni. It was ok in my opinion. We also ordered a thin crust pizza and that...More
