Recommended on a recent business trip by a friend who had attended the University of Kentucky. Decided to order for carry-out. Food was ready as promised, and ample parking was available. The antipasto salad was simply outstanding: a generous portion (even the "for one") of fresh, quality and flavorful ingredients allowed for a wonderful start to this dinner. The Supreme... More

Went for bread sticks and of course stayed for pizza. We were seated fast and the service was great from start to finish-friendly, fast (real fast) and accurate. Bread sticks in garlic sauce, still the best ever, anywhere for the last 30-35 years. The pizza ranks up there w/the best--from the crust, sauce and toppings. They have many other menu... More

Joe B's is wonderful eatery. Everything from the location, a former church/synagogue, to the home made salad dressings, the best 1000 Island you'll ever eat, is wonderful. My favorite dish-the chef salad with 100 island, of course. A great spot to relax with friends and family or hang out and watch the game on the giant screen.

This started out as a favorite date night place when were in college. Now our sons take their friends here. We love the thin crust "everything" pizza. Loaded with lots of fresh toppings and cooked to perfection. However you absolutely must have the homemade bread sticks served in their own "boat" of garlic butter. Lexington Classic!!

If you enjoy Italian cooking, with a hefty side of politics, then this is your place! The owner is very public about hating Obamacare, cutting server hours so that he doesn't have to pay for it, and happy to talk to you about it at the table. While the food isn't bad, I prefer NOT to have a side of... More

Quick service. Great food and very friendly staff. Several areas to sit in and watch TV or enjoy a quiet meal.

I love the pizza and bread sticks. In fact everything I've had at Joe B's has been good. It can be very noisy and crowded as it is pretty close to UK and a very popular place.

This a Lexington favorite and if you like breadsticks they bring you your own a footling and floating in a boat of garlic butter. Food is tasty and its a great little place to enjoy Italian.

This Pizzeria has been a part of Kentucky for over 30 years. It was one of the very first to go non-smoking. The Pizza is truly delicious and the ambience is wonderful.

I ate at Joe Bologna's at the recommendation of the folks at the Hyatt next to the convention center. Close to the hotel, I enjoyed the walk up a short hill to get there although there is plenty of street parking in this trendy and historic neighborhood. I was promptly seated when I arrived although the waiter took a while... More
