We went in a Sunday evening at about 6:30 and had to wait 30 minutes, the place was packed. They do a lot of take out so that was interesting to watch how hard the staff work to keep things moving out the take out window. Once seated, we did have to wait a bit for service but our friendly... More

We were staying at the Marriott Desert Springs Villa and order Papa Dans delivery. The phone ordering process was so painful and the gentleman we spoke to was not the brightest. It was so painful and drawn out (all to order one pizza and fries) that we completely forgot to use our 10% off coupon the hotel gave us. It... More

My wife and I have been coming to Papa Dan's for many years, when visiting Palm Desert, and are never disappointed. If you look at Trip Advisor, you will see many Italian Restaurants on their site. We have tried a few of them, they are good but we always seem to find our way back to Papa Dan's. It's located... More

we get the pizza to go here. It is on the greasy side and on the pricey side as well but is the best pizza we have found in the area around us.

We arrived around 7:30 pm on a Monday night and the restaurant was almost empty! We had good service and the pizza was good. This was the first weekend of the NFL season and they had 3 TV's with the game! Food has always been good every time we have stopped. I am sure we will go back again!

Got the special italian sub and a cobb salad for my wife to share. Should have gotten one or the other.....so much food. The bread for the sub is great, but should have more meat on it. The cobb salad was very good.
