Good gluten-free pizza

Hi - we needed a gluten free pizza and were happy with the one we got from Happy Joe's. Staff was super friendly even though we came in right before closing - they didn't seem to mind a "special order". Good laid back place for families - lots of games, casual atmosphere. Yummy ice cream too!

After seeing an ad and viewing the website I expected a more relaxing place. Great for kids though. Had the buffet - it was nothing special. Pizza was okay. Wouldn't go again. Staff was very nice.

For a pizza joint with an arcade full of screaming, out of control, parentally unsupervised children - the food's not half bad. I tend to forget about it since it kind of is what it is, but, ya know, they do a pretty good job with some of their pasta dishes. Yes - they have pizza and chicken and they... More

The service was slow, and the food was okay. The cook actually came out and found the Wild game on TV for us, which was very nice, but the waitress was preoccupied with some boys who came in.

If you are looking for a Great Buffet... This is it! Pizza, Chicken, Dessert, and Salad Bar all included. Food is always good and restaurant is very clean. Don't see your favorite pizza on the buffet? No problem, just request it and they will make it for you. A great place to eat in New Ulm!

Happy Joe's is a great place for a family gathering. Games and ice cream to keep the kiddies occupied and great pizza for the moms and dads. Monday and Tuesday night buffets are great--complete with fried chicken, pizza, and other goodies.

Every time our far-flung family members come "home," we order taco pizza from Happy Joe's for one of our meals. Their spouses realize why after their first time, and now the grandkids are on board, too! :) We even had the taco pizza for our son's groom's dinner a couple years ago!

We are in New Ulm for business. We placed order for the past two days: pizza, salad, chicken and bottled drinks. We enjoyed the taco pizza and fried chicken. The only negative was the delivery came in late as requested. Overall, we enjoyed our lunch break.

This is one of the best places to have lunch or supper in southern Minnesota. We try and eat here at least once when seeing family. This is also the best Happy Joe's, with excellence service and great food.
