Brand New Location is SUPER NICE!

This review is of the new Happy Joe's across from Autozone in Galesburg. What a nice building, and great a atmosphere! This new location just opened the week of 08/01/2015. Like any Happy Joe's the food was wonderful! Because of all the new staff and how busy they were, the service was a tad slow... read more

I am excited to see the new location as this is a good place to have to take kids for something different/celebration etc if the weather isn't good. The games room is fun & our daughter likes the horse ride. Pizza to me does not have a lot of flavor & hardly any cheese on our taco pizza last time,... More

We LOVE HJs (both my husband and I worked at one while in high school).....this location is at the bottom of the barrel. I guess it is a good thing they are closing this location and moving to another one. Hopefully, it is in better shape than the current location. Still love he pizza, but it is hard to get... More

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
