Papa has the best pizza in town. Nobody beats papa and that's a fact. All the hipster and old people will say to go to the burning grease fire know as Big Eds', but boy if you actually appreciate a quality culinary experience, papa is for you.

We had a pie delivered to our room and the delivery was quick (around 30 minutes), the pizza was great, and they even supplied paper plates, napkins, and silver! Great customer service, which was good to receive after a long, hard day of traveling.

We like Papa John's! We order online and sometimes the pizza is at our door in 20 MIN! The new Bruschetta Cheesesticks are terrific. We don't 'do pizza' often, but when we do- we order online with Papa John's. Their points online accumulate to give you a free pizza too which we really appreciate. When you don't order from anyone... More

Good pizza, decent price, fairly good delivery time compared to others. Very convenient to be able to order and pay online to get home/hotel delivery. I'd definitely recommend them any day. : )

I wasn't sure about the concept of a take and bake pizza, that is until I tried it !!! Papa John's has now become just about my favorite take out pizza .and has become almost a Sunday night ritual at our house...

I prefer Papa John's to any pizza in the area, but Oak Ridge location is just delivery or pick up. There is no seating. They have good specials and it is easy to order online or by phone.

I order from them at least once a month and that's living on a strict budget. The pizzas always are hot, fresh and exactly what you were wanting when that craving hits! Always look for promo codes-makes the pizza even better!

This is carryout and delivery only, no dine in facilities. The pizza was ready when expected, and the clerk was polite. I used the online ordering method and was able to select exactly what crust and toppings I wanted, and the finished pizza was exactly as ordered. The only reason for the average rating is because the pizza just didn't... More
