The best value for the money is the noon buffet. Lots of choices for pizza & salads. You'll never tire of the pizza selection!

The service was friendly, but the food was just ok. I wouldn't make a special stop unless you really love Happy Joe's. They did have a buffet for lunch which we didn't take advantage of, but lots of folks were.

This place was a surprise for us. We stumbled upon it while looking for breakfast, hoping it was open. We ordered the breakfast pizza and it was so good. The crust was one of the best we have tasted. They also have a breakfast/brunch buffet....More

Very decent food for a good price. We had the buffet the only down fall was it was a busy day so they seemed to have a hard time keeping pizzas on the buffet.

We ate here at lunch time so we could have the buffet. The staff never stayed up with making sure it was restocked

Stopped in about 1:15p for lunch. Thought what the heck let's do the lunch buffet. The pizza had been under the heat lamps too long, it was awful. So was the rest of the food. The salad bar was slim pickings at best. Said something...More

The service was great, food was great and the owners who we met were awesome!! Just all the people who work there are a delight to talk to. There was nothing to dislike about the place.

This is probably by far the best pizza place in Decorah. I have been going there for the last 37 years and can honestly say I have never had a bad pizza. The people are friendly and kind.

We got take out. The taco pizza is hard to pull off but it was done very well. We got 3 different pizzas and the crust on all 3 was great. The ham/bacon pizza was good. Sauce tasted great, could have used a little more.
