Good delivered pizza & salad, bit pricey

Delivered when promised, but not very warm, toppings good and good salad. Could use some extra condiments to enhance flavours. Not an expensive pizza but a little bit over priced for a delivered pizza and salad.

Only one server with no help from mngmt .. Was taking tables answering phones and making pizza. Took us about 15 mins just to place an order. Food was good! Nothing special but did the job.. This place has so much more potential with right mngmt

Very average food, not anything inventive, run-of-the-mill red sauce pasta cheese fare. Pizza so so.

We happened to be in town for a motorcycle event at Legacy and I have been wanting to try this place for some time. It met all expectations as we have always heard great things. We had a deluxe thin crust pizza, toppings were high quality and plentiful, crust was crisp and tasty. We saw the Chicago style but didn't... More

We always like to eat local. Joe's was a pleasant surprise. Appears to be a local favorite. Prices and portions were great. Not gourmet Italian but very good. $9 baked pasta came with salad and bread sticks or garlic bread. Sit yourself and pay at the cashier, if you wish. It's not fancy but a terrific value.

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!
