Wow, wish we lived closer as this could be a regular stop. We were taken back a little when we walked in and there was a line to order. We were thinking sit down type restaurant, but you order, pay and they bring it out....More

Nice place to eat- I was invited by Uncle Rufus and anti Ann . We had scrambled eggs and spoon bread - yummy. . The spoon bread is kind of a local dish but it was still good.

We had a nice dinner at Papaleno's on Friday night. We arrived before the dinner crowd. Since it was our first visit, we grabbed menus and found a seat before ordering. The kids' choices aren't listed on the maijn menu, so it was a plesant...More

Enjoyed dinner on a week night. My sister and BIL split a philly steak sandwich and really enjoyed it. I had the veggie burger - very good, though the highlight was the bun. Excellent. We also had the minestrone soup, which had good flavor but...More

This restaurant has been happily serving customers for over 30 years and the consistency is astounding. I highly recommend the Mountaineer Pizza, Mama's Meat Lasagna, and the Chicken Veggie Pasta. Parking is somewhat of a hassle, but worth the effort.

My wife and I went and ordered a garlic stick and a large pizza. Instead of getting the food that was ready out to the the customers they were too busy doing nothing else.

The bread sticks are unbelievable! NEVER have I ever had such a rich, thick Italian grandma made bread stick out like this one. The Pizza was very good and fresh ingrediants. I would eat here twice a week if it was in my town!

Opted for a pizza since we saw the homemade dough being tossed in the air. Was delicious! Glad we stopped. All the other food we saw being delivered to other tables looked delicious too! Wish I had room for the cheesy garlic bread!
