this place is a joke. it took forever to get out pizza. we ordered the same pizza as the people that arrived 30 minutes after us and they got theirs before us. the waiting staff was so rude and didn't even let us know it was going to be a little longer. never coming back here again


The Best Pizza On Planet Earth

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!


Great Pizza

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.


My very favorite

This is the best Pizza in town - when family comes to town, they always request it and you can buy it frozen and cook it at home.


Very Good Pizza

This Pizza is wonderful very thick if you choose and it is the best tasting pizza ever i would very much recommend eating here

One of the two best pizza's in the Bloomington, Champaign, Springfield, Decatur area.

There are in fact three pizza places in the Central Illinois area that are fantastic. Papa Del's is one of them and it is great. They have a thick Pizza that is to die for that can only be matched by Ginos on Rush street in Chicago. We made the drive from Decatur to Champaign at least 8 to 10 times a year to enjoy this outstanding taste treat.

Papa Del's is Great!

Unquestionably the absolute best deep-dish pizza this side of Chicago. True, it's a little pricey compared to other pizza joints in Champaign, a true college town (of course it's still cheaper than what you'd expect to pay in the big city). True, you can go down the street and get a large pizza for $6 including tax, but nothing comes close to Papa Del's quality. DELICIOUS! Comparable to the big Chicago deep-dish names like Pizzaria Uno, Due, My Pi, Giordanos, etc. Highly recommended.

Stellar Sicilian Deep Dish

Yummy! Don't expect to have your deep dish ready in a jiffy. This ""zah"" is a work of art and takes time. However... after a piece or two of the mile high treat, most will decide to box the rest for later. Keeps extremely well in the freezer; tastes even better the next day direct from the fridge!
