Nice and cozy restaurant in downtown Effingham. Good flatbread pizza and salad. Did a brisk business while we were there and it was recommended by two staff at the Day's Inn.

We were staying in a nearby hotel and ordered delivery using their website. Food was delivered to our door! Meatballs were amazing, as was the tortellini! Garlic bread and sticks were pretty poor though and went uneaten after initial tastes. Nice option for delivery in a fast food town!

We loved everything about Joe's. Nice little locally owned downtown spot. Great service. Nothing fancy, but a nice atmosphere and very clean. Pizza was cooked perfectly and just delicious. If we're ever back in Effingham, we'll go back to Joe's.

Pizza was good but not amazing. Went with the family after seeing several billboards along the highway and it definitely hit the spot. The Chicago style pizza was good - not as good as the usual Chi-Town places, but still pretty good. Service was ok - I would definitely try it again when in the area.

I love Joe's for pizza. This family has several stores in Central Illinois often run by family members. The Joe's in Effingham has a great location in historic downtown Effingham, and the atmosphere of the restaurant is great. Great pizza and fun the family can be had a Joe's. I especially like the Sicilian Pizza!

Well we must have went on a off nite. Friday to be exact. But this isn't my idea of great pizza not even good pizza. To us it was like a frozen store pizza. No taste-sauce not the greatest crust dry and cheese well that's another story They were very busy but did get right in--no one to seat you... More

Stopped in for lunch and was very happy with my meal. Had the trupiono carbonara and it was better than I could have ever expected. Staff was very friendly and quick to help. An all around good family friendly experience. Worth driving into town for. Definitely be back often.

We were travelling north on I-57 and we were hungry for something good - not fast food. After reading reviews we decided to try Joe's. It was worth the short stop off the interstate. It was easy to get to, parking was available and it was in a well lit area. The pizza was good overall with lots of toppings... More
