My kids loved this place!

Decor is fun, takes you back in time to an old fashioned ice cream parlor. Pizza is amazing and reasonably priced. Best part was a window where my kids could watch them making our pizza!

Favorite pizza place in Dubuque. Absolutely AMAZING specialty pizzas. They're famous for their taco pizza, so that's a must try! Make sure you load it up with their taco sauce too! Also, their BLT pizza is to die-for!

The whole nation needs Happy Joe's. One of the best chain pizza places out there, the big draw here is the Taco Pizza. I've never had Taco Pizza anywhere else even come close to Happy Joe's. The rest of the pizza is good too, the BBQ and Sandie's delight are top notch as well. The breadsticks are different, but real... More

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!!!! 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.
