I was in Watertown and was searching the web for a restaurant and Not Your Average Joe's came up. Easy parking and prompt seating was a big plus for us. Great seating by the window as well.

We ate at Not Your Average Joe's in March and had a great meal there. The service attentive and friendly. The food was attractively presented and tasted fresh. Our teenagers liked and so did we.

Good neighborhood restaurant chain. Good place for a simple meal. Service is at times inconstant, but overall, it is a nice place for drinks and a simple meal

We had not made a reservation so there was no available tables at first. We were offered a table in about 15-20 minutes, so we took a walk in the neighbourhood while we were waiting. We enjoyed our food. Quick service. Cool restaurant and atmosphere. A lot of people. Good music!

NYAJs in Watertown always provides great food, great service, good beverages. The menu is perfect with its wide variety. I recently tried the Green Machine and it was outstanding.

I have been with family to this place on several occasions, most recently with a large group. It was great for a large family gathering, since there was a lot of choice on the menu, pizza, burgers, sandwiches, seafood. Several had pizza, I had the herb crusted haddock which was quite good and fresh. I enjoyed the meal and the... More

Whenever I am visiting my oldest living friends in Watertown, I insist that we have dinner at least once at NYAJ's in Wtown Square. The reason is simple: you can't beat the quality of the food at still rather moderate prices. I've never had a sub-par or disappointing meal here: NEVER! For a mass-market product, a great deal of care... More

NYAJ is one of the best-run chains I've ever experienced. (Having said that, I recommend avoiding the Arlington store until they polish up their act.). I have eaten many meals in the Watertown restaurant, starting when they first opened. Their menu is imaginative without being bizarre; their service is consistently friendly and competent, and if something goes wrong, they are... More

Gone there with a large family group including two toddlers. The staff was very accommodating and has dealt very expertly with a time-staggered order (in case you don't know toddlers have their own ideas what to eat and when). The food was good, portions were big - as you'd expect in a diner. The only bone to pick is the... More
