So pleased!

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.

Thought the pizza would be a whole lot better. Crust was dry. Sauce was mundane as was the cheese. Service was great. Salad was very good and reasonable.

The food here is always good. Pizza is great, pasta is wonderful, and sandwiches are delicious. The restaurant is located right across from the old courthouse and is decorated beautifully. Bathroom is always clean. The back room can get pretty noisy (echo-y). The service is hit and miss. Sometimes it is hard to get a waitress to come around to... More
