Home made promise

This was a tough one for me. I liked the house. Small and intimate. It promised a home made pasta and Italian mama sweating in the kitchen kind of feel to it. Lots of love, you know. TLC...It was full of promise, this small house! They graciously accommodated our 18 person group. The waiter seemed... read more

My husband and I went here for my birthday - we recently moved back to Las Vegas after 20 years - 20 years ago we loved Chicago Joe's. We arrived at our reserved time and the host acted like he had no room and stuck us at a table by the backdoor - the restaurant is small and we understand... More

Looking for real Italian, in a spot that feels like home? This is it. Take it from a back east Italian food junkee! Hidden from the Vegas world but located in, the middle of it all, this is a local joint that will make your mouth water every time you hear the name. Just go already. Everything is awesome. Get...

Ate a late lunch here and everything was superb from the salad (excellent creamy garlic dressing) to our entrees (eggplant Parmesan and baked tortellini). We love to find good locally owned restaurants when visiting Vegas and this is a great one. The service was also very good. Will definitely come here again.

It used to be that you could rely on a neighborhood restaurant. Joe what happened to the quality home made Italian food you used to serve? Our eggplant Parm consisted of burned GRILLED eggplant slices with a topping of mozzarella... NOW THAT'S NOT ITALIAN. The Chicken Parm was just as bad; dry, grilled chicken cutlet with mozzarella cheese topping. The... More

This is a very cool, romantic restaurant. Small rooms and tables with candlelight. I would definitely recommend the linguini with red clam sauce. Yummy bread too. Make a reservation for dinner because the place is packed.

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
