Fun place for dinner

18 of us dropped in on them on a Sunday night. Great food & service. They handled us well. Gotta get the taco pizza, it's amazing.

I wanted to relive a great part of my childhood. We got a medium breadsticks medium Canadian bacon pizza and three sodas for $32. The place Looks like I remembered. The pizza was good but not as good as I remembered. There were several birthdays and people appeared to be having a great time. Next time I will go somewhere... More

The pizza at Happy Joe's is okay, but it's definitely pricey for what you get. The food wasn't bad, but it wasn't anything to rave about. We eat here once every several years simply for nostaliga and childhood memories of pizza birthday parties. If Happy Joe's doesn't bring back memories for you, you're much better off to get a pizza... More

Great family restaurant not at all fancy, a throwback to my growing up in Iowa and Happy Joes Birthday parties were the bomb!

Pizza was good, kids enjoyed their sub sandwiches and when it was all done there was no room for ice cream.....the main reason we stopped to begin with! Oh well, maybe next time Joe!

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.
