We try to go here whenever we visit U of I. The pizza is delicious and the garlic loaf is required eating! The only negative (which the food more than makes up for) is that the building is in MAJOR need of renovation!

Great pizza. Dropped in during a quick visit to Illinois. Mainly aimed at take-out, although they had a small area for dine-in. Had the thin crust with all veggies. Tomatoes and onions are hard to get perfect... They did it.

This is great Chicago style deep dish pizza. It is so good that leftovers 2 days later are even very good. Good selection of toppings.

Sadly we didn't have enough time to get the deep dish pizza on our visit here because the server said it could take 50 min to an hour and a half. We opted for the thin style and got some meatballs to tie us over....More

I've eaten all the famous Chicago pizzas--Uno's, Lou Malnati, etc.--but none matches Papa Del's. Even after eating for over 40 years from the original shop on Wright Street to it's current location on Green, that first bite still sends waves of pleasure through all my...More

Ate there in college; still love the pan pizza, although it seems doughier as I get older. Start with an antipasto salad. Get a sausage or pep pan pizza; takes a good 30+ minutes. Go late at night or at lunch; don't even try on...More
