Great burger

We stopped late one afternoon and had a couple of beers, some great bread with olive oil dipping with peppers and parmesan cheese. I was hungry for a burger and they nailed it. II was the right place at the right time.

Not much to say here. The food is better than the food court at the mall. I would not recommend it for the quality.

Just enjoyed a family birthday dinner. The restaurant was very busy with many mall Christmas shoppers, but we were seated right away. Our server was prompt and attentive, brining out our drinks, and bread immediately. We all enjoyed the Tuscan-like bread and dipping oil, even our nine year old who asked for a bread refill. We all ordered burgers, except... More

We normally enjoy this restaurant chain, and the food is always good. We had an interesting experience yesterday that warrants a review. We sat down at the bar to hear a woman complain about the slow service and i watched as she continued to wait for a drink. Our service was slow too, and I felt a definite attitude from... More

The staff was very gracious when our large group took over their lounge area. Although getting checks was a bit of a challenge, the staff was upbeat, courteous, helpful, and very, very patient with people arriving late, eating on different schedules, etc. The food was excellent, and the group had a great time.

The atmosphere is pleasant, but fairly ordinary (dare I say, average?). It is what you would expect from a chain. We were seated timely -- which you would expect in a well run chain. That part of the formula seems to have been perfected. The food is ok, but fairly ordinary (again, average?), with a fairly limited menu. Nothing terrible,... More

Not Your Average Joe's is aptly named. It's a moderately priced, family-casual corporate restaurant based in Southeastern New England that is a refreshing alternative to Applebee's, TGI Fridays and other such homogenized chains. Colorful hanging lamps, comfortable Naugahyde booths and a vibrant, floor-to-ceiling backbar create a unique blend of modern and retro. The menu has its staples such as thin-crust... More
