Papa Joe's has very good authentic mexican food. The drinks are also quite good. My friend says that the margarita's are very tasty. They also have some different choices of mexican food than other traditional mexican restaurants. The servers are also friendly and the service is good and prompt.

I wasn't blown away by this restaurant - but I don't have any complaints either. The atmosphere was a little much, but it gave me something to look at. I ate here months ago, but can't remember what I ordered. I would go here again, but I wouldn't make this my go-to place to eat around home.

We now live 45 minutes from here and we drive there to eat. So fresh, fast, delicious, friendly. In Carroll County this is a "go to" for just about all of us

My wife and I had a late lunch at Papa Joe's yesterday. We both had a Fajita Salad, hers with steak and mine with chicken. A bed of field greens, with delicious grilled red & green peppers, grilled onions and cheese. You can't go wrong!

We had a wonderful time at dinner. There was 8 of us with 4 children and we sat down immediately. The food was cooked well and delivered quickly. The service was good and the other staff members were kind and interacted with our children.

Unfortunately the TripAdvisor site has their former location. My wife swears by this place but I have to say that since they moved a year or so ago they've lost a notch. Yes they now have a better venue but I just feel like they've lightened up on stuff. I.E. the burritos and enchiladas are more tortilla than before with... More

Papa Joe's is as good if not better than any Tex-Mex restaurant we have been to in our frequent travels to the Southwest United States and the Four Corners region.

When we are in the mood for Mexican, this is our regular stop. Good food at a fair price. Service was great. Very attentive. Come with a big appetite or plan to take home leftovers. My favorite is always the combo platter.
