What You'll Get
Unless properly restrained by spaghetti, meatballs roll uncontrollably, knocking over carefully stacked Lincoln Logs and bowling perfect games at the local lanes. Keep your supper subdued with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Italian fare and drinks at Papa Joe's Italian Restaurant. Choose between the following locations: Oak Lawn or New Lenox.
The seasoned chefs at Papa Joe's Italian Restaurant dole out generous portions of classic Italian dishes augmented by a well-appointed wine list. Tantalize tongues with hearty dinner appetizers such as the baked clams painted with De Jonghe butter ($8.95). Curd fiends can chomp the quarto formaggi lasagna, which is lavishly layered in asiago, ricotta, fontinella, and mozzarella cheeses ($12.95), or appease carnivorous canines with the steak la melinase, pan-fried protein caught in a tug-of-war between a spaghetti bed and a provolone blanket ($14.95).
Printed on yeasty dough, the pizza menu includes the thin-crust Papa's special, piled high with sausage, mushrooms, onions, and green peppers ($16.85 and up), and the cheesy deep-dish pie ($12.25 and up) that knows all the words to Meat Loaf's greatest hits.
Edible excursions conclude sweetly with classic Italian desserts, from the amaretto-soaked tiramisu concocted from espresso to the homemade iced lemon cookies. During balmy months, diners can swill a glass of fresh-fruit sangria ($6.50) on the New Lenox location's outdoor patio, guarded from judgmental nests of Fabergé eggs by a white picket fence.
