“Great alternative to dinner on the road”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013 via mobile

When traveling on I95 on my way home, I usually look for a rest stop for dinner. I've found that it's well worth the wait to hold out a little and stop at Joe's in Vienna! The food is better than I95 rest stops, the buffet offers generous helpings and there is no wait for your dinner.
In summary, good Italian food at a very reasonable price. Bill B .

“Pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

We drove up and down the street trying to decide where we wanted to eat. We decided on Joe's which happened to be right across the street from where we were staying at the Wolf Trap. The pizza we had was really good.

“A local Pizza and Pasta chain”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

Best deal is the buffet with salad, great soup, pizza, chicken, eggplant parmigiana, and suasage and peppers. It is the only thing we go there for.

“Great pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2012 via mobile

Joe's place is a very small (5 table) restaurant that serves pizza, sandwiches and pasta. It looks well worn, but it was clean. The decor leaves much to be desired (tired picturesof Italy and maritime objects), and all tables are near the door, so on a cold night it can get chilly.

You clearly don't go to Joe's for the atmosphere, but go for the pizza. We had the special (5 toppings of your choice), and it was excellent - a fairly thin crust, not too much tomato sauce, and all the veggies were fresh. A medium pizza and two,drinks were less rhan $14.

We only had one visit and didn't try anything other than the pizza, so we can't testify to the other food, although the fries appeared to be frozen crinkle cuts. No wine, but they do serve beer.

Our server was very friendly, but the restaurant was quite busy (lots of takeout business), and she was the sole server, so service at times was slow. But if you're not in a hurry and want an excellent pizza, Joe's is the place to go.
