Editorial review from GrubHub 2/29/2008

Tasteless food. Their dishes are very large but lacking a ton on meat. We have ordered twice from this place and has always taken over an hour and the delivery driver the first time forgot some of our order and the second time the driver gave us the wrong bag. No thanks for this place. more

No Hype, No Trendy Gimmicks, Just Awesome Pizza!! - The Best in Colorado! 7/9/2007

A New England transplant since 1995, and I have finally found the perfect pizza. Complete with a perfect blend of Tasty Sauce and cheeses and toppings, on top of a PERFECT crust...Just like back East. This is truly the Best in Colorado! My recommendation...Try the Mushroom, Onion and Sausage. You won't be disappointed! Pros: Best Pizza in Colorado Cons: Location... more

Best pizza in town, seriously! 9/30/2006

I'm sorry the last reviewer had a bad experience there; that *has* to be an extremely rare event for Papous...\r \r We have eaten meals there at least 20 times in the last year and the pizza is always incredible.\r \r The crust is wonderful, thinner on the bottom and thicker crust on the edges....buttery and very tasty. The crusts on my pizzas have always been done to perfection; completely cooked (I cant stand uncooked dough), slightly crispy on the edges and on the bottom.\r \r All the toppings I have had are great; the Italian sausage is soooooo good. The pepperonis are wonderful and all the vegetables are fresh and retain excellent flavor after cooking. Tons of good cheese and an extra cheese pie is incredible.\r \r I love my pizza and having had some of the best in the USA on the East Coast and Chicago, I would still place this in my top three. Pros: Food, service Cons: Small for eat-in more

Very disappointing 7/27/2006

Usually I don't get disappointed when I go to a place rated 9.0 or higher, but I was. I ordered a Papou's Special which had several toppings. This ""Connecticut Style"" pizza had a nice outer crust but a too thin interior crust, which made for a soggy pizza.\r \r In addition, pizza burnt in several places on the bottom.\r \r On the positive side, the toppings were excellent, but on the whole, I would not go there again. (Rating: 3 out of 10) Pros: Excellent Toppings Cons: Lousy (and burnt!) Crust more

Best Pizza Around 6/23/2006

Wow, what is conneticut style pizza?? We did not know either. But after we ate there we were hooked. Try the Mediterranian style pizza. That was the best I have ever had. Great service, and good pricing. It is worth it. Pros: ALL of It Cons: Wish they had later hours more

Pleasant find 6/2/2006

I was searching ""Best Salad"" when this place poped up, so decided why not try it... We were very pleasantly surprised. Tasty, fresh pizza and..... a very nice salad. The place itself has a very ""take-out"" feel...... but the counter help made us very comfortable. Pros: fresh ingredients more

Great Ingredients Make Great Pizza! 3/19/2006

I love Papou's for their quality meats, cheeses and veggies. The atmosphere is not the trendy chic hot spot, but it is warm and inviting and the food more than makes up for anything the decor may be lacking. The italian sausage is the best I've had this side of the mediterranean! The salads have dark green leafy greens, fresh/flavorful veggies and satisfying dressings. The staff is friendly, helpful and genuinely happy that you are there. Pros: great food, value, friendly staff Cons: limited seating more

Best in Denver 1/20/2006

Best Pizza In Denver! 7/20/2005

We LOVE Papou's!!! Not even close - tried all different pizza's and ths by far is the best one in Denver!! I'm from Chicago, my boyfriends from Boston - so we've both had some good pizza's - and this is by far our favorite in Denver!! more

best subs and pizza in CO 6/7/2004

This place makes me feel like I am back east where mom and pop pizza shops are much more common than Denver. If your tired of the frachises, head over to Papou's for some home made ""grinders"" and pizza!! The pasta is awesome too! Pros: home made, inexpensive, great service more

HEAVEN 1/2/2004

We have become regulars at Papou's. We love the pizza, especially, the Roasado with sausage. The service is great and their delivery is prompt. We also love their REAL GREEK SALAD with the homemade dressing. Thank you for bringing your pizza to Denver. Pros: clean, great value more

AWSOME 1/2/2004

This has to be the best pizza in Denver. Incredible flavor and they aree not stingy with their toppings. No wonder they have reveived so many awards and have been highly recommended in the Denver media. The Papou's Special is unbelievable. more

AWSOME 7/7/2003

real pizza has been brought to denver no place compares to it. the crust cheese toppings and everyother food is superior to anyother pizza place everyone should try it. Pros: great food, great people, great value Cons: no improvment needed more

Great pizza! 6/16/2003

This is my favorite pizza in Denver. My husband loves the calzones. Good delivery! Pros: Great pizza, Great calzones, Delivery more


This za reminds me of home.....Boston (although they call it Conneticut-style) or Greek style pizza with golden crust, top notch ingredients (the grease is not that scary flourescent color you seem to find in NY Pizzas!) and a very friendly staff. This is the goods. I'm a pizza fanatic, and ranks at the top along with Valente's on the north side, Wazee Supper Club downtown, and when they do it right (seemingly rare these days) Anthony's on Evans. Pros: Crust, Cheese, Sauce Cons: No Beer, No Wine, No Liquor more
