we ate there a few more times, same experience. service was great, we ate in the bar. the fella bartender was wonderful. let us watch what we wanted on tv. food was fantastic. service was terrific. drinks were very good. environment was delightful. still won't try the take out again cuz the past experiences were just annoying. don't trust the take out guy. but the dine in service is just a joy

Stay away from the take out area, just go to the resturant. The take out staff is rude and snotty both on the phone and in person. The sit down staff is really good. The take out staff and manager need a tune up or they should be fired.

The take out staff is always cheerful and friendly with me. I have never had a problem, maybe it is just you guys?. They must think you guys are hillbillies so give you no respect. Maybe you should change the way you dress? Or maybe you should change your attitude towards them? ANYWAYS A+ all the girls in there are so cute and friendly!

I have been thinking about trying out their restaurant... How is the food? Is the two for one/ half off pizza Mondays the real deal or is it a rip off? Is it affordable? Do they deliver? Also how is the service? Does anyone know the managers? Sorry it's a lot of questions I just want to know if my money will go toward something desirable...
I appoligize... I previously responded that I have been here 1,000 times.... I confused this with Little Joe's on Cedar. I have only heard the sandwich's at Papa Joe's are pricey.... Never been there though....

I hope the New Lenox location is better than the Orland Park and Lockport locations because those are just utter crap.

Orland Park and Lockport has different owners, that's why they are called papa joes. Frankfort,New LEnox, and the Original Oak Lawn location all are the original owners, that is why they are the original papa joes.
good to know

Wow! I'll definitely have to try it now that I know it's different owners!

But if I am going to order a sandwich from ANYWHERE... it's going to be the Danwich from Pizza Mia. It's a giant piece of breaded chicken with wing sauce on garlic bread with mozzarella. It's enormous, and I always plan on saving the other half for the next day, but I always end up stuffing it all in my face and then being so full I can't move--but it's worth it.

Anyhow, I don't care HOW abusive the owners are... NO ONE compares to the Nazi Naumczyks who own Nancy's. They should be ashamed of how they treat their mostly teenaged staff. I worked there 10 years ago. They were bad then, and I've heard they only got worse.

I have seen better deals elsewhere in this town, but it seems that most people in this town don't give anyone too much of a chance. Why is that? Don't you want the town to be truly known as "Proud Americans"?

Everything is good. I have met the owner/managers a few times - they seem like a good group of guys. They seem like the type of people that will remember you after a few visits and buy an appetizer or drinks or something.
We order once a week, they do deliver.
I heard them call there server stupid..don't seem like a group of good guys to me!

I made the mistake of working in this playground for some extra cash. The Servers, Josh, and Owners eat off your plates, and the salad bin before serving them to you after handling cash and god knows what else. Jason licks his fingers and tastes every dish he cooks, and through all his mistakes, he has the kitchen in chaos before going to smoke at the office, or bar.(illegal). Jason belittles his staff constantly for his own mistakes which are never ending. It's amazing anyone stays there, and usually dont. They dont time your over priced side orders with pizza when you order a delivery so it is guarateed Ice cold because it is sitting 25 minutes minimum before leaving restaurant. If you order catering Josh is to fat to pick up boxes and your order gets kicked across dirty floor in restaurant before it is presented to you, and then goes back to flirting with the underaged girls. Mike the other fat guy delivers it your catering in an angry manner, and shows no interest in keeping order level so 1/8 of food is dumped in box and messes up your place but you wont know (because he wont take order out of dirty boxes for you) till after he leaves, and god forbid you dont tip him. Oh, and try not to get bumped in to by the delivery drivers in the parking lot who are either blocking your path on their cell phones, wrestling, smoking, or swearing. The mexicans are the only reason this place has lasted this long God bless their abused hearts. But if your in the mood for some overpriced germ filled food that has been picked apart.. This is the place for you!

This isn't about Manhattan. Manhattan does have Mattina's which is great. I give Papa Joe's an A+!

Almost anything in New Lenox is better than that in Manhattan. Their eateries are nothing but greasy spoons. The food served at their gin joints is imported from the neighboring greasy spoons.
You are what you eat and if you eat in Manhattan....

My family used their catering services this weekend. And as always, it was fantastic!! No complaints from over 60 people..the food was hot, well presented and tasted great! Many thanks to the Pappa Joes staff. I suggest Mustang Mom dishes out the cash and tries it...well worth every penny! I suggest 1/2 off pizza Monday...try it tomorrow!!!

The Prime Rib was awwwfullll. A ribeye steak, pan fried, grey and watery is not PRIME RIB, you savages! They way overcooked even that.
The place has an unfriendly vibe. I'm not the only one who noticed.

I will never go again.

You know, there is a reason Will County is dismissed as a bunch of rednecks. If anyone thinks that Papa's food is good does not know any better. I'm almost ashamed to say I'm from here.
