Pap's Pizza Parlor is a fun place for pizza. The kids love their play room. They are very helpful with fundraisers, and help all the local schools. They are a bit on the pricey side, but the pizza is very good.

I remember Papa's Pizza on Main from my youth. The big hamster wheel, the ball pit, flavorful, mouth-watering pizza with stringy cheese that could stretch for a mile.

Perhaps it's that I'm adult now. My palate has changed, my criterion for choosing a restaurant have evolved beyond the play equipment. I just don't feel the same about Papa's that I used to.

The play area is dated and smells of pee. The playground attendants are still the same killjoys they always were- but now they're too busy glowering or texting on their cell phones to keep kids from beating each other senseless. Why not hire an attendant who will actually interface with the kids, maybe one who even likes them?

The pizza used to be so delicious my father asked me to mail him him a slice cross-country. They've changed the cheese, and I'm not sure what they did to the crust but it tastes like squeezie cheese on a saltine. The tops is usually greasy.

I have to say the salad bar is still excellent. The shrimp is always off, though. I always get it frozen when I ask for it on the side for my salad. And salad or pizza, the shrimp usually has shells.

It's always been an irritation that you have to purchase drinks separately, but thankfully they finally installed a card reader at the drink counter.

I miss the occasional organ player, though, which lent a joyful atmosphere.

The place is still as busy as always, though, so they're doing something right!

This is a great place to take the family for pizza. This is also a great place for a birthday party! They have a great play area with playground equipment inside. Their pizza tastes great. They have the best sauce and the best crust I have tasted! Their pizza selection is phenomenal!!
