Heard this was the best Chicago style pizza in Champaign so we went. Might go again, might not. The key issues were the environment and service. It was slow service...and the tables are packed in like sardines..so we had very little space. Uncomfortable. Building had...More

Had mile high pizza, Chicago style pizza, New York pizza, none compare to Papa Del's. Flavor, textures, everything fits perfectly except the wait, but even that is worth it for this pizza.
