We visited Chicago Joe's for lunch 9/10/14 and it was outstanding. The restaurant is quite small, looks like it may have been an old house at one time. Checkered table coverings and small tables rather than large plain booths add to the feeling of a true Italian restaurant. Our waiter, whose name I unfortunately cannot recall was very friendly and... More

I started eating here 35 years ago as a child. This is a must stop for every trip. Truly a hidden gem in Vegas and a great departure when you are sick of the buffets and coffee shops in the hotels. We had the ravioli and lasagne. It was hot, very tasty and reasonably priced. Word of advice, get the... More

Chicago Joe's was one of the best restaurants we have ever eaten in. We dined here for lunch and were thrilled. Place is very small and quaint. Menu held a good variety. Prices were average. The service was top notch. The food was amazing. All Las Vegas visitors should dine at Chicago Joe's. It does not disappoint.

A very small restaurant so make reservations. Excellent food, homemade Italian cooking. Early bird dinners are the perfect size, no leftover boxes to carry around. House salad dressing very good. Chicken Parmesan, Chicken Parmesan with eggplant ( ask if not on menu, they will make it), Spaghetti & meat sauce, and Ravioli all excellent. Ate there twice on a 7... More

Went here with 12 friends, had reservations. Tiny dining area, cramped seating ( thank goodness we like each other!) had the artichoke appetizer, yummy, loved the broth. Spicy mussels couldn't stop eating them! Ok salad and bread. Pasta was good. If you have to use the restroom, you go by the kitchen into a TINY hallway, into a TINY bathroom.... More

This was a great place to check out and eat. It is a very small home where reservations are recommended for there are only several tables. Nice and cozy, Christmas lighting in red adorns the wall bordering the ceiling. Great food and service. Bring your appetite and you will not be sorry. A great little place off of the usual... More

Very disappointing visit, we used to go there fairly often. The bean soup which has always been good was 80 percent macaroni. I sent it back once and got about te same the second time. My Veal Marsala was over cooked but I ate the mushrooms. They can't mess up dessert because it is not made in house. We have... More

I read a bunch of good reviews about this place before going. I love the rustic charm of an old red brick home being converted to a restaurant. It's to bad that the charm wears off quickly once you realize it's not charming it's a just a dump with sub par food. The music cut in and out for no... More

Last meal in Vegas and we had the misfortune of having a local recommend this place. Authentic Italian? Lol....they don't make their own pasta, the chicken was an unseasoned frozen breast, the escargot was microwaved, the waiter was inattentive and knew nothing when he did pop bye, the pasta was reasonably priced if tasteless and the veal was overpriced at...

We visited Chicago Joes during a trade show recently. It is a small, homey place, with great food and atmosphere. Because of the show, cabs were in short supply, and we waited forever for ours. After realizing our cab wasn't going to come anytime soon, Joe himself gave us a lift! How cool is that? Great place and great folks.... More
