Weekend Food Tripping at: Papa John's Pizza

A birthday Pizza Party to attend on a Friday night, I was quite excited because it means having fun conversations and loads of laughter with my high school friends + their little ones!  Two of my high school friends celebrated their super belated birthday at Papa John's!  It was my idea to go for pizza and I am glad they chose a pizza place all of us haven't tried!  

Papa John's Pizzeria, "Better ingredients, better Pizza..."  that's their tag line and it's for me to find out if they live up to it!

I've checked their online menu and found their food to be priced like regular pizzerias! I did research for the prices of each dish for your reference!

Caesar Salad
Php79.00 (approx $1.80)
Fresh Romaine lettuce tossed in Classic Caesar Dressing.  Nothing spectacular!

Cream of Mushroom Soup
Php49.00 (approx $1.00)

Served with chunks of thinly sliced mushrooms with croutons. 

 Potato wedges, chicken legs and chicken strips served with their respective sauces.  I love the Chicken Strips! 

 Mushroom and Chicken Rice
Php160.00 (approx $3.70)
New to my taste buds, this isn't a favorite of mine

 Baked Italian Meat Balls

Php140.00 (approx $3.30)
 Tiny meatballs served with cheese and tomato sauce, imagine meatballs without the pizza

 Pasta Bolognaise with Meat Balls
Php195.00 (approx $4.60)

Diablo Burst
Php180.00 (approx $4.20)
Your choice of Penne or spaghetti pasta served with Italian Sausage, mushrooms, onions, garlic and crushed red pepper.  This is my favorite amongst their pasta dishes.  Spicy!

Php190.00 (approx $4.50)
Served with shrimps, calamari and garlic served with special Marinara sauce.
I find this dish to be really tasty, not a lot of seafood in it.

Php180.00 (approx $4.20)
Grilled chicken with carbonara sauce, tastes just like regular Carbonara pasta in most restaurants.

Cheese Sticks
Php90.00 (approx $2.00)
Don't ask me why it's called cheese sticks, I call these cheese pizza!  I find the freshly made dough tastes really good with real mozzarella cheese.  I like this without the cheesy-buttery sauce. 

Fisherman's Catch
Php430.00 (approx $10.00)
12 Medium 
Tasty because of its shrimps, garlic sauce and loads of cheese!

 Super Papa's
Php450.00 (approx $10.50)
12 Medium  
Anything that has SUPER next to its Restaurant name is worth trying!  
It has everything from Italian sausages to pepperoni, ham, olives etc..

Bacon Cheeseburger
Php430.00 (approx $10.00)
12 Medium  
Bacon with ground beef chunks, what's not to love?

Texas Heat
Php430.00 (approx $10.00)
12 Medium  
Spicy Jalapeno peppers were added to add up "heat" to the pizza.  I find the pizza to be light spicy, not sure if I'm so into spicy food that I give this half the chili rating :) 

Chicken BBQ
Php430.00 (approx $10.00)
12 Medium  
Very tender chicken strips drizzled with BBQ sauce, I really like how tasty this pizza is!

Disclaimer:  Shared the food about with around 15 people!  :P

Papa John's is actually a wonderful place to hang out with group of friends as they have function rooms wherein you can close the glass door for some privacy!  The pastas are so-so, I would say the strength of the restaurant are their freshly made pizza!  The dough are obviously freshly made!  Let's not forget the added charm to the restaurant are the good staff service!

  3. the cheese pizza looks so good! parang I want it with chili flakes or hot sauce on top! :D

  4. I also featured Papa John's last month when we ate there for hubby's and bro's birthday lunch. And I was hooked! Their pizzas are really good, my fave is Texas Heat :))) we didn't try any of the pasta yet so thanks for your feedback.
    I especially like the garlic-butter sauce and green pepper that goes with each order of pizza.

  5. I agree about the cheese sticks! It's basically cheese pizza cut into sticks, diba? But it's my favorite from PJ's :)
