just moved back to berea and couldnt wait to go get a philly cheese steak at papalenos. what a huge disapoint ment. what happened? one half of my sandwich had this lil peice of steak-um on it. overall the sandwich is very skimpy compared to last summer. did the pizza go bad too. to pay over $8.00 for a sandwich and soda is a rip-off to begin with, but when all you get is a greasey bread sandwich, thats b.s. c'mon guys. get it together

I used to love their stromboli sandwich, but each time I purchased one, they seemed to go from bad to worse. I swear I wish somebody would explain to the Lewis boys thay their help is ruining the reputation of a once nice place to eat.

have the pizzas went downhill too? I make yearly trips to Berea only to take the children to get the pizza there. so, to save me from a bad trip, are the pizzas still good?

I can't tell you how many nights I spent twenty years ago as a student drinking coffee in the booths.....but every time I've gone back over the last 3 years or so, the food quality has declined steadily....not only has the Philly decreased in size, but it is SUPER dry.....been sittin around for a while...

Don't even get me started on the employees...I miss the old Papaleno's.

oldtimes, I have seen the kinda busy you're talking about, but if you'll look, most of them are unsuspecting tourists who will never come back anyway and will walk away unhappy. In a nutshell, they are busy 'cause it's in the tourist triangle.

the last three times we ate there the food was a big dis. the lasagna came out cold in the middle but no big deal they put it back in for a few min. the next time the baked spaghetti was cold and the bread was so hard that we asked for another one and the employee acted so mad. we got a large pizza the next time and it was burnt on top but the bottom wasnt and they had ran out of salads early. they need to try and get it together

Ive never had a problem with Papalenos. When do you all eat there? I eat there mostly weekdays and its good. If you talk to the owners Im sure they can resolve the problems.

There was one really cool guy that worked in there a long time ago.. he had SO many Toyota Supras. I drooled and drooled over his cars. He was "Supra Man"! I think he and his wife had a baby and maybe he switched jobs? I dunno... I just remember the red Supra he named "Scooby Doo"..

I agree, and even though they have added tv's it could use a good cleaning. And the price of Pizza has gone way up. The owners need to get more involved, and an attitude adjustment, to respond to these concerns.

We wanted something warmed up, and the one owner, waived off the worker and said no, just give it to them. We saw him, we were sitting right there, and saw how long the food waited to be brought to the table. Next time we walk out.

Don't p'off the locals people. We are here all year.

I called in a delivery for 2 pizzas, very simple ham and pineapple and pepperoni. Got it, but paid $36.00 for them! And they were not up to par.

Shame on Jerome Lewis! He has let that place go to the dogs. Most of the employees, with the exception of 2 or 3, are these snotty people who don't care if you eat there or not. I choose NOT!

Sounds like you are just jealous that he won't give you any d!ck. LMAO. Go sit on a fence post somewhere and spin in the wind.

I don't know what some of you are talking about but I feel everytime I have gone in there to eat I have great service and food! The price must go up right along w/ everything else in the country! Food isn't FREE!

in my opinion they have. i used to think the mountaineer was one of the best pizzas anywhere, but the last two (and possibly the last ever) i bought were under topped, greasy, and burnt.
