Papa Joe's is an Italian restaurant with 2 locations in the Chicagoland area. I have visited the Orland Park location several times and have never been disappointed with the food, service, or ambiance.


Papa Joe's offers your standard Italian menu. Make-your-own stuffed or thin crust pizza, iconic Chicago deep dish, chicken and seafood based entrees, and a variety of pasta and sandwich options will give you plenty of delicious dishes to choose amongst.

The food here is pretty good and they offer a lot of specials. Tuesday is 2 for 1 pasta day, and this includes soups, a variety of salads, and unlimited bread.

The spaghetti with mushroom marinara sauce is pretty good. My only complaint is that they don't offer whole grain noodles; it would be nice to offer customers more options.


Every waitress I have encountered has been friendly.


The best part about dining at this restaurant is the lively atmosphere. While dining you can listen to the piano player and be entertained by the magician that is frequently there visiting each table. Nice decor and festive lights add a nice festive touch to the dining experience.

Final Remarks

Papa Joe's is a great local Italian establishment in the Chicago suburbs. I highly recommend visiting for the first time on one of the special nights like 2 for 1 Tuesday. That way if you don't like the food, you didn't lose out as much. However, with the good food, service, and entertainment, you are sure to have a nice night out!
