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

We came here to celebrate our two year old's birthday. We loved it!! The waitresses were great. The breadsticks and sauce are excellent .... The red sauce has cheese in it! The pizza was excellent too, lots of meat and veggies, great crust, love the taste of everything we ate! The bathrooms are nice and the entire place is really... More

Ate here on a Thursday and it was worth the visit. Found it via TripAdvisor and it was worth the drive off the interstate. Priced reasonably and the service was excellent. The sub sandwiches and pizza were great and the only reason why I won't not give it 5 stars is that the Alfredo pasta wasn't that great. Otherwise, worth... More

We love Joe's Pizza! Never had a bad meal. My favorite is greek salad, all pizza's and cheesecake. My daughter was upset to leave Joe's when she went to college but thrilled to learn they had one in Edwardsville, IL

Stopped here while passing through. I'm so glad we did! This is a cute restaurant with plenty of seating. The service is amazing. The price for dinner is very inexpensive. I would definitely eat here again.

We were visiting Effingham for fun fest and had just completed a cruise thru town. Stopped in at Joe's and glad we did! They were very busy with all the corvette people in town but their service was great. Their servers really move!! There were four of us and we had stuffed shells, ravioli, lasagna, & spaghetti all with salads... More

We live in Effingham and like to go to local places. The staff is usually good and friendly. The food is fair. Many times the salad is hot when served. The pizza is a love or hate. It is doughy and the sauce is sweet. For us this is not our favorite, but we will go there with friends and... More

I know the owner myself personally, not only is he a good family man, but also a loyal friend. I have eaten there quite a bit. I'm not going to say this on behalf of him because he has no clue who this is writing it. Anyways, at Joe's Pizza (It's a small town Italian Pizza Place and more), so... More

Free street parking available in front of the establishment. Seat yourself to any seat and a waitress will quickly come with menus and offer to take a drink order. Service was fast and efficient. Small Chicago style pizza with several toppings was more than enough for two of us. Total cost with drinks (free refills) and tip came to $22.... More
