We get Joe's most weekends - much better for takeout as the time for waiting for dinner is a long one - seems to be more irregular now with toppings depending on if the owner or if another person is making the pizza's. Much better is the owner in on the line - he does a fantastic job and has... More

We tried to go here after a movie. The web site said they open at 1600 but the door says 1630. We went somewhere else.

Best pizza I have ever eaten. My new favorite pizza place. Amazing. Wonderful waiter and very clean place. The sausage has a amazing garlic flavor. The creamy garlic dressing for the salad was wonderful. We will be back

The pizza is addicting from the hand tossed crust to the yummy fresh & piled on toppings. The mozzarella cheese and toppings are the finest in the area! The lettuce salad topped with fresh mozzarella & Joe's House dressing is delish and we would go for the salad alone. The meatballs and sauce are quite flavorful and handmade. Pepsi products... More

I can't complain about the food but we waited over an hour and a half for our pizza.... then watched the table that came in a half hour after us get their pizza first. If you want Joe's, call your order in for pickup, do not dine in.

I love Joe's Pizza. Very tasty and their sausage is great. I agree with others that it takes a while to get your pizza, but once you get it, it's worth the wait.

Joe's Pizza is very, very good, but you had better call your order in or have a lot of time to spare because it takes a while to get your pizza. In their defense, it has been a year since I was last there because I don't live in Springfield and when I do go up there, there are just... More

Best non-deep dish (Fratello's) pizza in town. The only place I'll go for pizza when I want a good one. Piled high with cheese and toppings, EXTRAORDINARILY good prices and excellent food.

Saying it's the best pizza in Springfield is faint praise, and there is a lot that annoys me about Joe's. The wait is LONG and they don't take credit, but it is the best pizza in town, and they pile on the toppings. When ordering take out, take whatever time they give you and add 20 minutes.
