What does creative casual cuisine mean? Exactly what it says. We’re creative, because we reject the same-old-same-old in favor of tastes that are interesting and unique. We’re casual because while our food may be worth getting dressed up for, we invite you to come as you are. We’re all about cuisine in the sense that our chefs apply high standards of culinary art. There it is. Creative. Casual. Cuisine. If it sounds like your kind of place, then you – like us- are not your average Joe.

We were disappointed when we were here last fall, but in the last two months we have been back twice , and both visits were 5/5. We had great service, and very tasty meals. The individual pepperoni pizza, steak tips, and recommended specials of the month, like the lettuce wedge with sliced steak were superb last visit. Our group of... More

Very crowded restaurant with a 35 minute wait - first indication that the food, service, and venue was great! We thoroughly enjoyed our meal.

If you haven't been to a Not Your Average Joe's you're missing an experience of excellent food! The location I frequent is in Westborough on Rte. 9. The food is made to order, the selection is great, and the bread and dip served is so delicious that it's very difficult to stop munching and requesting more. If you sign up... More

My mother and I visited NYAJs last week and it again exceeded expectations. The food, drinks, and service are consistently above bar. The combination of seasonal food items and fixed menu options means there is always something good to order. We ordered a pitcher of the seasonal pom bom sangria, which was amazing! We were also very happy with our... More

This is a great place for dinner or just a drink. Usually pretty crowded between 5-7 but not a bad wait. Menu changes every few months with new specials but the great core items are still there. Bread and Oil are a favorite

Enjoyed a great lunch today at NYAJ in Westborough. It started out in the best possible way by being greeted and taken care of by the hostess Ginger. She was efficient, caring and personable. She went out of her way to get us a great table. Our waitress was efficient and knowledgable. Great service. Our meals were all delicious and... More

It was a week day and we got in around 8:30 pm. and had a nice dinner with kids. I have reviewed this chain before and my assessment stands: the food is very average, the service is friendly, but not exceptional and the atmosphere while pleasant is not overly inviting. Pricing is the middling as well. Experiences this time confirmed... More

We have been to this restaurant before but this time we went for one of their Pairing Dinners. One we went to was Martinis and a 5 course menu. They also have one coming up with Rums and have done wine and beer in the past. The price was $29.99 and well worth it. My wife has some food allergies... More

On a crowded Thursday night on February vacation, my husband and I got a booth at the bar. We had a friendly and attentive waiter who let us try a sample of draft beer. The bread with oil is always delicious. We always get the tuna appetizer on wontons and have never been disappointed, especially when it is half priced... More
