Great atmosphere for families. Excellent pizza and ice cream. Reasonably priced gourmet pizza. Great place for birthdays. Not a great place if you want quiet, as is family friendly and kids running around.

Happy Joe's is a family favorite for many years!!!! In a trip back to Iowa after nearly 2 years, it was a must to have the Taco Supreme pizza one night and the Sauerkraut and Canadian Bacon pizza another night. The pizza's were incredible, and we were able to celebrate our aunt's 80th birthday while there with one of their... More

I love the pizza from Happy Joes in Dubuque and would have to say it is my favorite! I have traveled throughout the country and no matter where I go I miss my Happy Joe'S Taco Pizza.

We like trying different places while out on our travels and saw this pop up on our search. We were not disappointed in the least! The interior of the restaurant is very eclectic to say the least. There are pictures of teams (I assume local) and all sorts of stuff on the walls. There is ample seating for a variety... More

We ate on the Grill side of Happy Joes. It wasn't the best meal but dam close. The service was a bit slow but well worth the wait. You gotta try this place.

We always search for really good pizza! Happy Joe's did not disappoint!!! The guy who took our order was very friendly & asked several times if we needed anything, refilled drinks & engaged us in conversation. We will go back!!

When I return to Dubuque to visit family, it is a must to enjoy Happy Joe's Pizza. They carry ingredients that other pizza shops don't. Every employee is friendly & truly seems to enjoy their job - hard to find now a days. The business is very respectable & active in the community. You are not just going out to... More
