Good American Fun!

Walking into this restaurant is like walking back in time. They had a little arcade section for kids to play. Food was really good and you get a lot for your money. We did not have a chance to order any ice cream but it sure looked good.

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!!!!

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.

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!!
