They have some of the best sauces I've ever had! The customer service is excellent and it is always clean inside anytime I'm there.

We weren’t really aware of it until last November when we ate at a pizza and pasta place in Vincennes and the owner there told us his brother had a similar place in... More

Happened upon Joe's while spending the night in Effingham while on a family vacation. We were looking for something local and not a chain. This was a GREAT choice. The pizza was very good. The sauce has a bit of a sweat taste which is a little unusual but was VERY good. The cheese filled pizza bread as good as... More

We had delivery to our hotel when passing through Effingham and it was quite good! The food was delivered quickly and the delivery guy was cheerful and courteous.

We had the spaghetti with marinara, which although swimming... More

We chose this restaurant based on TripAdvisor reviews and weren't disappointed. We ordered the Greek pizza based on suggestion of our waitress and it was very good. Ordered the large house salad which was also good and more than enough for two people. Can order alcoholic beverages on other side of restaurant. Friendly staff; clean family restaurant.

We were there on a very busy night, Corvette Funfest was in town. We really didn't wait to long for a seat. The food was absolutely delicious and the help was courteous and helpful. The price was reasonable. I want to drive back there from Michigan just to eat dinner there.

We always eat at Joe's when visiting Effingham. The pizza and pasta a excellent and the service is fantastic even when they are very busy. Don't miss this wonderful establishment on the square in downtown Effingham. We never miss it.
