Description: 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.

Uppity server, clearly a student home for the summer with no loyalty to the business. I will admit that she had no assistance from the cadre of silly boys hiding in back. Had been there for a business lunch a week earlier. At that time, my client and I shared a pizza. I was surprised they had pizza. It was... More

Love their bread, this is a must, also you have to try the clam chowder- very good. If you want something special you ask for the chicken Oskar- it is not on the menu but they have it.

We were traveling through Leesburg on Route 7 and stopped for gas at a newly developed shopping center and housing complex called Lansdowne Town Center. The area reminded me of Legacy Village in Cleveland, Ohio. We spotted a bar/restaurant with outside seating and a great looking menu so we decided to give it a try. Not Your Average Joe's proved...

I went to Not Your Average Joe's with some co-workers and maybe it was the hype but I wasn't terribly impressed. The best part of the meal was probably the bread basket. It comes with this parmesan, garlic, red pepper and olive oil dip that was delicious. I ordered the Capellini Nuevo which was a Mexican style pasta dish with... More

This was my first visit to Not Your Average Joe's and I was pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere was energetic and well designed. Our waiter Tony was exceptional and recommended great foods including their meatloaf. This is the first restaurant I have visited that has it's own Gluten free menu. I highly recommend it.

Had an excellent dinner here. Started with the strawberry rhubarb sangria and it was excellent! Not too tart and not too sweet. While waiting for our entrees to arrive, we snacked on the house bread, a perfectly baked focaccia that was served with a garlic and red pepper flake dipping oil. So good, we had to ask for a second... More

This isn't our first time coming here. They always have very seasoned food and occasionally will miss the mark. Today we sat out on the patio. Beautiful weather and comfortable seating. Unfortunately the bikers were there as well. They were parking their bikes right on the street beside the patio seating. One of them sat their revving his engine taking... More

My husband and I came here pre-half marathon run. It is a very popular place so we made reservations. We were seated quickly (by the kitchen but we didn't care). Just when I thought we had been forgotten a server by the name of Bradley came on by and greeted us. He was very friendly and willing to ask to... More

Very conveniently located off Hwy. 7 and Dulles Airport. It is very busy so reservations are a good idea. Although busy the service is excellent, orders quickly taken. The restaurant is tastefully decorated and very clean. The bar area is crowded several people deep who ignore the fact you are trying to get to your table, once past them it... More
