Chicago people will love the pasta here, as well as the pizza.

The food is good and the prices are reasonable. The seafood ravioli with alfredo sauce was great - as is all the dishes we have tasted on our trips to Effingham - you can see them making the pasta in the kitchen - looked yummy.

I vacillate between giving this place three or four stars. The place was highly, highly recommended by locals and we found that it was very busy. Seating was comfortable and the menu was expected fare. We tried 3 different small pizzas and one Italian Beef sandwich. Service was average. The server did her job but wasn't all that friendly.

Thursday's is all you can eat spaghetti. Who can refuse that? Very good pasta and pizza as well. Well worth the stop to eat.

We were traveling home from the St. Louis area. We really wanted pizza. We are a family of 5 with 3 young children 6, 3, & 1. The service was excellent. The food was very good and the cost was so reasonable. Glad we made the stop and if we are in the area again we will be back.

After being on the road for almost a month, eating lots of Tex-Mex food, it was nice to sit in a little Italian Restaurant and have a regular spaghetti dinner!

Positives: very good food, community involvement Negative: parking The most memorable discoveries are often made accidentally. For us, Joe's Pizza is one of those discoveries. We were traveling along the interstate late one Monday afternoon and decided to stop in Effingham for dinner. While looking for a certain local restaurant we wandered into the downtown area. I couldn't resist stopping... More

I grew up in Effingham but moved away for college and never moved back. However, ANY time I am back in Effingham to visit family, a trip to Joe's is a must! I always get the same things and they are always top-of-the-line: Breadsticks with the marinara/cheese dip (love!) Cheese tortellini with marinara sauce on the side Side salad with... More

The fettucine was good. All the items looked appetizing on the menu. The prices were reasonable and it was a surprise to eat here since we have been going to Effingham for years. It definitely a place to check out when in town.

We had a large party and the place was packed and they found room for us. Food is always good. They have the best wings I've had in town. Very crispy. Chicken bacon ranch pizza is hubby's favorite and the subs are great. Definitely recommend.

Food was good for pasta and salad. Ordered delivery from Hotel and received food minus silverware and soda. Salad was good; however, the "French" dressing tasted to be inedible. Even with hunger pains the food was average and the "cheesecake" was frozen and wasn't worth the $. Wish Gabby Goat delivered.
