I grew up on Happy Joe's pizza. I celebrated many birthdays with Happy Joe's and it was always the spot to go after football and basketball games in high school. That being said, a trip to Happy Joe's is about nostalgia for me. No other location does as good a job as the Century Drive location of recreating the experience.... More

We stop at this Happy Joes a lot. We live in Wisconsin but travel to Iowa to visit family. We often stop and pick up a pizza here on our way through town. It is the best tasting pizza around and the taco supreme is the best taco pizza we have ever had. Love Happy Joes!

Great place for a kids party and for them to rip around in! Not so hot if you're an adult couple looking for a quiet dinner for two, but I'll be you already knew that! Helpful folks, good parking, very good pizza, yummy ice cream, and kid friendly for the family. I've eaten there and thought it was a good... More

I don't know how they do it, but this taco pizza really is the taco pizza ever. Every other taco pizza at any other restaurant is either ok or not good at all. Every time I go to my hometown I have to have this.

Everyone's happy at Happy Joe's! The pizza is great, the atmosphere is friendly, and there's always some child excited for all of the tickets he/she earned playing the games in the back room. Exchanging the tickets for a prize may be the toughest part of your night at Happy Joe's.

My wife and I visit this chain restaurant on Route 20, a couple of miles east of downtown Galena, IL every couple of weeks. We try to go on Wednesdays as my wife likes the whole grain crust pizza loaded with extra cheese and mushrooms. They offer several sizes and topping pizzas. I like the salad bar and the all... More
