NIce place, would go back again

Visited Not Your Average Joe's in Watertown with a group of friends in March 2015.

A lot of people, we had to queue for a while. The food is very good and also nice price. The staff is nice and it feels welcoming.

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. I was so pleasantly surprised by their expansive gluten-free menu. I follow the Paleo Lifestyle, but very occasionally I will indulge with GF... More

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
