I really enjoy eating here whenever I am in the area. The taco pizza and pepperoni are my favorite. I have found them to be inconsistant in terms of quality. Sometimes it is the best pizza ever and other time it is just pretty good. The problem is the price is a little high for days when they are just... More

Happy Joe's makes unique pizzas that are a local favorite. Their taco pizza is a huge hit, but if you're willing to go out on a limb, try the Sauerkraut. Happy Joe's is known for loading on the toppings. The sausage pizza has tons of small sausages on it, and the pepperoni pizza contains completely overlapping pepperonis baked under the... More

I had a bad experience at Happy Joe's. Hopefully, you will not. The Pizza was undercooked and it seemed to take forever to be served. I took my family and my neighbors out for a fun filled meal and the problems started at once. We ordered pizza for each family. It would have been nice if both pizzas had come... More

I like Happy Joes and wish we had one closer, but this one was not the best. We had the lunch buffet and continually had to wait for pizza. The salad part was fine but nothing to write about. The place was noisy and could really use a good cleaning. The other thing is how close the tables are to... More

This restaurant is very noisy and not very clean looking. After visiting this restaurant several times during lunch, the buffet is never kept full. Long waits for them to replenish. Not enough time during lunch to wait so long.

This restaurant is one of the few chain restaurants that provides consistently good food and has a great atmosphere for kids and family. The service is also very good and the staff make sure you have whatever you want/need. I no longer live in the Galesburg, IL area however, I make sure I visit this restaurant as often as I... More
