My favorite restaurant

A different special every day and I usually order the special without looking at a menu. They also serve the best pizza in town in my opinion. The atmosphere is nothing special but the food overcomes any shortcomings here.

I had the absolutely best wedge salad and tomato bisque for lunch at Summa Joe's yesterday. Their lunch menu is extremely varied AND extremely reasonable. Most lunches are only $7 or $8, which includes one side and your beverage. I'm looking forward to bringing my husband there soon to try their pizza. We are so blessed to have such excellent... More

This restaurant uses fresh, local ingredients to prepare their dishes. It's a fun, lite atmosphere with amazing food. The chicken florentine pizza is so yummy!

Last evening we stopped by for a business meal and all of our expectations were met and then some. The service was excellent, as was the food. The decor is basic, in a fun sort of way. If you are looking for a high end white tablecloth restaurant, go elsewhere. If you are looking for a relaxing atmosphere, good food... More

Great food! Varied menu. Attentive servers. The black beans and rice are very good and so is the tomato basil soup!

I had a salad as a side and it was very small and a sandwich. The sandwich was excellent, but didn't have enough meat. It was lumped in the middle and as I got to the outside it was mostly bread. With a personal pizza and a shared dessert and water the total was about $24.50 before tip. Waitresses were... More

Found while enroute home. Ten miles off the interstate, but worth the detour. Food was amazing, service was excellent(even though they were slammed on Wednesday with free cheese pizza for under ten kids), and restaurant was full. Wait for table was only ten minutes. Will definitely return.

Not too impressed. We ordered a couple of sandwiches that were good. We however made the mistake of ordering the potato salad as our side. It was undercooked and under seasoned. I have never been to a restaurant that doesn't keep salt and pepper on the tables. Not sure if I would bother coming back. For what little we ate... More

Good food, good service and lively atmosphere. It is a bit noisy when the place is packed but that's part of the charm I suppose.

We were looking for someplace to eat in Anderson after some shopping on Valentine's Day. We figured the usual places on the business strip north of downtown would be ridiculously busy, even more so than the typical Friday or Saturday night, so checked the TripAdvisor listings. Summa Joe's jumped out as one of the best. Although we had never heard... More
