Papa's Deli is a step back in time and a breath of fresh air! Papa himself took our order, prepared and served the food. The gyros were huge (truly enough for two), fresh and delicious. The meat so tender, thinly sliced onion, fresh cucumber and tomato with just the right amount of tzatziki sauce - and amazing warm flatbread. The... More

This isn't really much of deli because the sandwich offerings are pretty limited and there isn't much selection/choice fo sides. The seating is very limited and God forbid you should sit down at the 80+ year old owner's table even when he is not even there. Most times I have visited, there is only one person taking orders and preparing... More

Nice little place on the corner of the square! I go there for a quick meal once in a while. It is a Greek Gyro place that is very good. They also have an ice cream bar and a small grocery. Cash only though!

Towards the end of each day, if you drive by you will see him sweeping the doorway and sidewalk as I think he has done since day one. Good old fashioned customer service - he is a gem... More

My family stopped by Papa's Deli for the first time today. We all ordered the gyros with fries. We were happy the gyros was mild flavored and not salty. The tzatziki sauce was plentiful and fresh. It ado came with lettuce, tomatoes, and onions. I skipped the lettuce. Just my preference. The onion had an odd taste but that can... More

Stopped by while antiquing in the area. Sandwiches smelled bad and side salad had a gross film on it. The fried items tasted of burned old oil. The whole family was not willing to eat our meal. We threw it away and went somewhere else. Place has a feel that the owner is old and "thrifty" and keeps his food... More
