This place is great and every Lexingtonian should go here at least once!

There are not enough good things to say about this place. The salads, bread, and pastas are all so good. The staff is friendly and very fast. My last visit I tried the pizza for the first time and it was really good! I love the setting inside the restaurant. Doesn't seem uppity and very welcoming.

Order the deep dish pizza - it was the best of the three dishes our family had. The thin crust pizza lacked flavor and the manicotti was salty. Our waiter was friendly and helpful, but overall the food was just not very satisfying.

I've been going to Joe Bologna's since I was a college student at UK and it's as good now as it was back then. This is a great place to meet up with friends and family after work -- or for any reason at all. You must try the oversized (and sinfully delicious) breadsticks. Pizza is outstanding and the beer...

The breadsticks are huge, we could have easily split one. Also excellent service and staff was happy to answer questions we had about the old church.

Stopped by Joe's on our first night in town for a Book Club trip with the ladies. The restaurant was mentioned in the book we read so we had to visit. I am not a bread person so make note that I thought the Breadstick was perfection. They are very very large and O so yummy. The group also had... More

Staff was a little slow but the pizza was great. You must get the breadstick! But atmosphere was cool and plan on going back!

We went with a group after a UK game. The restaurant was crowded and we had to wait near the bar - about half of our group had a couch to sit on the rest stood around, but we had some drinks and didn't expect to walk in and sit after a game. When we eventually got seated, we had... More

Good prices and even if the eggplant was a little undercooked I didn't care because the salad was really good and the breadstick? Out of this world. The atmosphere is casual and I felt relaxed.

Recently, we had lunch at an old favorite. I love their manicotti - the sauce is just the right blend of spice and tomato sauce. Real comfort food. The salads are always very fresh and the blue cheese dressing is the best. My husband had the pizza and it was perfect as always. Good he doesn't mind sharing! I've enjoyed... More
