“Best Pizza in Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2010

Friends of mine who don't live in Dubuque are hesitant of Happy Joes Pizza, but the Dubuque restaurants are VERY good. Excellent pizza, everyone's favorite.

You won't be disappointed if you want a hamburger, meatloaf or pizza, but you gotta be kidding me with these other reviews! It no big deal.

“I dream about this place from CA!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2009

I grew up near a Happy Joe's and every time I return home, we must make a stop at Happy Joe's. They have THE BEST taco pizza I have ever tasted. I have also enjoyed such regional specialties as spaghetti pizza, BLT pizza & Canadian bacon and sauerkraut.

If you like pizza, Happy Joe's should be a part of any Eastern Iowa vacation!

“Delicious as always!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2009

We arrived with a party of ten around 1:00 p.m. We ordered their lunch time special which is a little Joe and a beverage for only $5.00. The pizza came out quick, hot, and delicious. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the friendliness of the staff. Definitely a must if you are visiting Dubuque!

“The best pizza in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2008

Love the pizza at this place. Not sure how the get the crust so crispy, but it's amazing. The taco pizza is great as is the special (canadian bacon and sauerkraut). A perfect place for families and friends. We have to eat here every time we're in town.
