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

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
