Papa John's Pizza at BF Homes
- Sept. 6, 2011, 7 a.m.
Papa John's Pizza, a popular pizza joint in Jefferson, Indiana, is now in BF Homes. Here's a restaurant review to give you an idea what to expect dining here.
Papa John's Pizza, a popular pizza joint started by John "Papa John" Schnatter in Jefferson, Indiana, recently opened a branch along President's Avenue in BF Homes. Its slogan of "Better Ingredients. Better Pizza" sparked my curiosity. My friend and I have heard good things about the place so we decided to head over this restaurant for dinner to see if it did deliver what it promised.
The pizza looked really appetizing when it arrived. Considering the price that we were being charged for it, I was expecting that they would have been more generous on the toppings. The crust reminded me of a French baguette rather than those thin pizza crusts. The pickled jalapeno peppers were surprisingly sweet and gave a slight zing to the entire pizza. The garlic butter, however, tasted way too much butter that there was not a hint of garlic in it.
We were greeted by a very bright and cheerful interior as we entered the restaurant. One thing that caught my attention here were the decorations on the wall. Instead of the usual paintings and photographs that you would see in most pizza joints, there were wooden pizza shovels that were painted with different designs. Very unique and creative.
The menu at Papa John's is very much what you would expect from any pizza joint. It has a respectable selection of classic and specialty pizzas. They also serve a selection of pasta dishes, appetizers and salads. They also have a few rice dishes to satisfy the Filipino palate.
Sadly, many of the dishes they had on their menu where not available, which was very frustrating. After a series of trial and errors, we finally found one something that was available: their Super Papa's Pizza--a hand-tossed pizza topped with tomato sauce, pepperoni, Italian sausage, ham, mushrooms, onion, green peppers, black olives, and mozzarella cheese. It was served with pickled jalapeno peppers and garlic butter dips on the side.

The vibrant atmosphere makes it a good place to hang out with friends and family. However, more attention should be given to their inventory to make sure that they would be able to satisfy and not frustrate their diners when they order.
