The Quincy Mall will be adding a new restaurant this summer, PaPPo's Pizzeria & Pub.

The new pizzeria will specialize in fresh, stone-hearth oven backed pizza and craft beer. This will be the first Illinois location for the pizzeria, they currently have locations in Lake of the Ozarks, and Springfield, Missouri. 

Besides traditional pizzas, the new restaurant will offer Apple Bourbon Pulled Pork, Calzones, sandwiches, salads, award-winning oven baked wings, homemade bread sticks, and their famous Pizookie (a baked-to-order brown butter chocolate chip cookie, this sounds AMAZING!). They will also be serving 32 beers on tap, both small batch brewed house beers and guest beers. The restaurant is expected to bring in 50-60 new jobs to Quincy.

The new pizzeria will be located at the current Que Town Bar-B-Que space, and Cullinan Properties (owner of the Quincy Mall) will be working with Que Town Bar-B-Que about relocating to a different space in the mall.

The projected date to open is sometime this summer.
