My husband and I have gone to Joe's several years now and always like the chicken dishes, lasagna, pizza we have ordered. The rolls they serve are also good. Wait staff is very friendly, attentive and courteous. We appreciate the service. The dinner salad that is served with our entre could definitely be improved. We enjoy a good salad with our meals and the salads served at Joe's are "poor."

Excellent food. We ordered a takeout as it was Valentine’s Day and the food was ready on time. Authentic Italian cuisine in a very nice setting.

It’s been on my list for quite a while and I’m glad we gave it a try. The food was very good, I ordered the cheese ravioli with sausage. The home made rolls are delicious, and the service was excellent. The atmosphere is very family oriented and the prices were very reasonable. We will be back.

I have been enjoying this home town Italian restaurant for sometime now. The food is delicious, very reasonably priced and the wait staff/management makes you feel right at home. The first time and every time I have visited. I have enjoyed the restaurant whether with a friends, with family, as part of a couple, or just by myself

Ate at Joe’s for lunch. Service was great atmosphere nice however we were only couple in restaurant. Had ice tea, fried calamari with only one dipping sauce and lazaña and lobster Ravioli. No sweet tea option but sugar on table. The salad was small compared to Olive Garden OG and drenched in house dressing which was good so suggest have it on the side. The lazaña was fine with some of the noodles over cooked as not covered by sauce. The lobster rav was ok and the cream sauce had a lobster tast. Rated a three as leaving room for other places who may be higher or lower. Price was lower than The OG.

You know you’re in trouble when the booth seats are really lumpy and uncomfortable- not a very welcoming start. The rolls were the best part of the experience. Caesar salad was terrible with tiny cheap grocery store croutons and no ground pepper. And an upcharge from the house salad to boot. Avoid the chicken in Joe’s sauce. Service was okay but just some really unimaginative Italian cooking. Roman cucina just a couple blocks away is a better option. Not a good experience.

We ate here for lunch today with two teenagers. It was delicious. My husband ordered the chicken Parmesan sub. It was a little too crispy to eat, but we shared my Stromboli. They took care of it, and gave us cheesecake. Everyone was super nice. We will be back.

We really enjoy eating here! Food is good, good price, quick and friendly service and nice atmosphere. So many places lack atmosphere these days My daughter has a dairy allergy and they accommodate her needs. Several waiters know us, greet us warmly and ask about our family.

Frequent this location often. Very strong service. Good food. Prices are awesome. Not sure anything on menu is north of $13 for entrees (includes small salad and great rolls). Stick in in the family rotation. Hidden gem.

In a part of town where there aren’t a ton of Italian options; Joe’s does a very good job. Locally owned and family operated, it’s a nice little place to get a good Italian meal. Pizzas are good. Pastas are solid. Sauce can stand on its own. Good fresh bread. Salads are a bit scarce (come with most meals) but that’s ok. Calamari app should not be missed and desserts are good too. Prices cannot be beat. Most entrees are around $10-12 and not sure any entree is over $15. Overall, solid A. Service is excellent. Always cordial and very friendly. Family staple and good for kids.

This is our go to Italian restaurant, we eat here 3-4 times per month since it is close to our house. Don't let the older strip mall look fool you, inside is a charming little restaurant. I have sampled many different dishes here, and have never been disappointed in any of them. One of my favorites is Joe's Combo which has manicotti, lasagna, and stuffed shells. One thing we always have to have there is the calamari. They have excellent pizza, too, the crust is always perfectly chewy and the perfect thickness. The prices are also the lowest around. Great family owned place!

I met friends for lunch. My choice was the Eggplant Parmesan. The salad that preceded it was ice burg lettuce with a small sliver of tomato. It was crisp and the dressing was tasty. The eggplant however couldn't even be cut with a knife and once I finally got a piece torn off l wasn't even able to chew it. Perhaps it was because it was sliced lengthwise? The sauce and cheeses were very good and the side of spaghetti was fine. The entree was a disappointment Needless to say I have taken this off my lunch places

We've eaten at Joe's for more than 15 years and they consistently serve great food. After church, for birthdays, anniversaries, a casual meal during the week or just dessert everything tastes great. The ziti mushroom is one of my favorites with it's garlic marinara, but Joe's Tortellini with vodka sauce can't be beat, and the Eggplant Rollentini with spaghetti is superb. Everything comes with a salad and garlic rolls and great service with menu prices that may make you think you've travelled 10-20 years back in time. Joe's Garden salad and Caesar salad are generous enough for two. I wish he would add a Greek salad, but hey, that's not Italian. The calzones taste great, my wife loves their lasagna, the pizza is first rate, chicken and Alfredo dishes are all yummy. Servings are generous and to can top it all off with cheesecake or other sweets. Best value and food that beats fussy expensive downtown spots. Eat at Joe's, you'll enjoy it.
