Our favorite Ahi Tuna in Cucumber came next and was a good choice with the drinks. My wife had a pan seared haddock (made to... More

My husband and I go the NYAJ's frequently, sometimes with other couples. I love trying the seasonal offerings and the various sangrias offered. The foccacia bread served with oil and grated cheese is wonderful! One of my favorites is flatbread pizza...toppings change periodically and it is always good. The atmosphere is lively since the restaurant draws a good crowd and... More

We really love the menu at NYAJ's and always want to re-visit when in the area, even though it is a little out of our way. The meals are upscale, well-prepared and served with that bon vivant style you might find in an urban setting. Large variety and something for everyone.

We live very close to this neighborhood star. When we were house-hunting in Westborough we began to have meals here and quickly realized how special it was. The food, regardless of what your favorites may be, are consistently high quality. Today, I visited with a friend from New York City who asks to go to Joes whenever he visits. We... More

Joe's is consistent and you will usually get good service. The menu has a lot of different options from salads, sandwiches to main entrees. It is conveniently located on Route 9 westbound and makes a good stop before a movie at Regal.

I heard a radio advertisement for the lobster roll. I found an Average Joe's near my hotel in the Worchester,Ma. I ate at the bar, the service was quick and the drinks were ice cool on a hot day. The lobstah roll was better then I expected! It came with fries and slaw all of it was yummy!
