Papa's has good food and quick service. It's not my favorite in Prescott however. We had a combination of several items and all were saucy and good.

We always receive a warm welcome here. The owner is usually on site and moves around greeting patrons. The food is always good and the service is also good. They don't have much turnover among staff, so you generally see the same servers.
