I have been going to Papa Del's since I was a student at the University of Illinois in the early 70's. It was the best pizza then, and it still is. I have had Chicago's best, New York, and you name it. I seriously have NEVER had pizza as good as Papa Dels in Champaign. The thick ( Sicilian) pizza is huge and delicious. The atmosphere is campus-like, not posh by any means. Once you order, it will be a good 45 minutes before your pizza is ready...but it WILL be worth the wait. The pizza is the star of the show, service is friendly, but not overwhelming. The facilities are upgraded every 15 years whether it needs it or not. But you go there for the pizza...and you will NOT regret it!
This is the best pizza I've ever had in my life. You will never regret having it. This amazing pizza is a combination of healthy and tasty food that you can crave for all your life once you try it.
Best pizza in chambana by far.Somewhat hidden on campus,this place is well known to students and in-the-know locals.Might want to call ahead as these take a while to cook.Well worth the wait.
