Great Lunch Spot !

We were in the Burlington area and decided to stop here for lunch. It was busy, but the hostess was very accomodating and pleasant. There are a lot of office parks in this area and they all flock to the local restaurants. The server was very pleasant and the food was nicely prepared. My only... read more

Sunday lunch. Food and service were good but not really better than average. Meals are a little pricey. Free refills on soft drinks is a plus. Noise level was good compared to most restaurants in the Boston Northeast area - we could actually converse without having to shout. Interesting décor.

Chicken Caesar salad came without croutons but with curled up pieces of cold dried pizza and a small amount of dressing. Waitstaff was very pleasant and accommodating but it was just an average lunch. I probably would not stop there again.

This is one of a chain of restaurants not unlike TGI Fridays. Good food at a reasonable price. The restaurant in Burlington is located in the Wayside Commons (mall) with ample parking. Lunch for four with drinks and one dessert cost us $120. Try the Bacon Blue Flatbread and bread pudding. Very good!

Great location, food was wonderful and service was amazing. The Burlington location has plenty of parking. The entire staff were friendly and accommodating it made the dinning experience so relaxing. I highly recommend this location to dine.

The best part about Not Your Average Joe's is the dipping sauce for the bread. It's addicting and I could make a meal of the it. The menu is extensive and varied. There should be something for everyone's palette as the selections include Cajun, Asian, Mexican, American, and Italian. Service at times is slow and generally parking is an issue.... More

This is an excellent family restaurant. The menu is varied and the food is generally flavorful and well prepared. I have occasionally had an ordinary meal, but find sticking to the grilled meats and fish is an excellent option. The price is reasonable for the size and quality of the food, and there is something for everyone with the various... More

We went there for lunch last weekend. We had nine in our group with 3 grandkids, 11, 9, 7. We made a reservation as it was a Saturday in the holiday period. We were greeted promptly and they had our table all set up and out of the way of walk-in traffic. The menu was an eclectic mix with pizza,... More

It's not supposed to be average. But it is. I've never experienced otherwise. However, great place to meet others and enjoy a relatively inexpensive meal.

NYA Joe's is a 'go to' restaurant for our family. If we feel like going out for dinner on a Saturday night (or a Tuesday night), we enjoy NYA Joes for its fresh ingredients and interesting recipes. While I also enjoy the other restaurants in this same plaza, NYA Joe's has the best food for the price. Capital grill has... More
