My family and I travel from the Chattanooga area to Murfreesboro, and we all can agree on Papa Ron's. The servers are always a little slow, but always friendly. It is no mystery what to order: the pizza! We have tried most of the specialty flavors on the menu and have never been disappointed! The spinach artichoke is a fam... More

They could've received an average rating if it wasn't so expensive. Ordered the potato skins which were clearly from a box and the highlight of the meal. The skillet lasagne was penne pasta and a broth like tomato sauce with very little flavor. Clearly people enjoy their food because the parking lot was full and most tables taken, I just... More

We enjoyed their salads. Ordered the lasagna and it was ok, but the pizza we ordered was awesome! BBQ chicken pizza was a hit!

We stayed one night in Monteagle and discovered a low number of restaurants in the area. Plenty of fast food places for lunch. Papa Ron's is a combination Italian restaurant and steak house which comes off as a strange mix. However, the food we chose was good and prices were in line with other cities in the area. Service was... More

Very nice lookin restaurant. Decent prices and good selection. Unfortunately,my selection of cannelloni lacked substance. It tasted good but the promise of sausage and beef was lacking. More spinach than anything. It was almost vegetarian. I had a nice tasting cocktail to go with it and they have a wine selection that I didn't get to try. Service was excellent

The locals know about Papa Ron's but if you are traveling between Nashville and Chattanooga, this is a great place to take a break. We arrived around 8pm on a Tuesday night and the restaurant was full which is a very good sign. We could tell right away we were not going to be disappointed. Pizza, Pasta, Steaks, Burgers are...

We were a little leary with the size of the menu on how the food would be being there was anything and everything on the menu. Glad we came. Phenomenal right down to the bread and garlic butter. Caprese chicken entree so much flavor and chicken and spinach cannelloni with the home made pasta. Definitely will come back next time... More

This little restaurant is just a gem. We all enjoyed our food and it was not out of the world expensive. I love artichokes and there are many entrees and salads using artichokes. I had the parmesan crusted grouper and it was excellent! I might dream about that fish. The drinks are strong. They certainly don't skimp on the liquor.... More
