Oldest continuously family-owned pizza restaurant in USA! Best pizza I’ve had in NJ. They also have a local delicacy called a mustard pie.

One of best pizza pies I ever had…. Great crunch, love the tomato sauce, crust is excellent, needed a tad more cheese but great service

Ordered a tomato pie and ate it outside on the tables. Thin, very good, higher ratio of cheese to tomato sauce, which is what I prefer.

I came here directly after eating at Delorenzo's so that I could directly compare them and determine the true king of the tomato pies! While both are absolutely fantastic and definitely deserve their spot amongst the most famous and highly regarded pizza places in the United States I have to give the slight edge to delorenzo's. Papa's has a more typical crust than delorenzo's and has more chew. It had very little flop yet lacked the crunch I was hoping for given that that is what they seem to be known for. I was surprised by this as I actually ordered my pizza well done as the pie at the table beside us didn't look to be cooked enough for my liking. Another 2 minutes in the oven and I probably would have gone in the 9's, but I must review what I was given. Very cool old school feel inside with black and white photographs of the original owner's family, and multiple signs mentioning their over 100-year history. If you are a pizza fanatic like I am then you owe it to yourself to make it trip to robbinsville to try these two legendary spots!

Worth the hype and definitely worth a trip here. Not sure why all NJ can’t taste this good.

🍅BEST TOMATO PIE ALERT🍅 Going all the way back to 1912, Papa’s claims to be the oldest tomato pie restaurant in the United States; despite moving locations a few times, they have been in Robbinsville for close to a decade. Just like their rival De Lorenzo’s, Papa’s serves old school, classic, traditional, round tomato pies with an exquisitely crispy texture that matches a fantastically flavorful taste. You’d be hard pressed to find a more delicious smelling pizza. The dough is on the thin side, fabulously firm, incredibly crispy, particularly when it comes to the outrageously crunchy crust. As terrific as the dough is, the star of the pie is the super sweet and delectably delicious crushed tomatoes that are blended into more of a sauce than just laid atop the pie in their natural state. A little olive oil and salt give the pie some flavor but there seems to be some added spices and ingredients that bolster the overall taste. The cheese is the weakest aspect of the pie, rigidly firm and plastered on the dough with a little bit of char on the bubbles, but still very tasty and works in concert with the tomatoes. All of the ingredients are perfectly in sync, emanating an olfactory sensation as well as a tantalizing taste explosion. While I usually prefer a more traditional sauce and cheese pie, this is truly fantastic, a great change of pace pizza. One of the best pies in NJ, it’s definitely worth making a pilgrimage for, and comes really close to matching some of the great pizza New Haven has to offer.

Bit of a rookie score but it’s better then a 7.9 but is not good enough for the 8.1

Very good sauce, a little on the sweet side. Thin crust. Wish the cheese had a little more flavor.

The sauce and cheese are very complimentary. The bread has a great crisp. Overall, one of my new go to spots!
