They have really good pizza one of the best Happy Joes to eat at they still make their own crust wish the prices were little you better because if you're going to pay $20 a pizza so if you have a large group it gets kind of expensive

The best Taco Pizza in the world, my father would bring a cooler and they would pack them and freeze little joes for him to deliver to me in Florida! Happy Joes is my happy place!

Finding a "Special" advertised on a flyer in our motel room,, we rang up Happy Joe's and ordered the two-pie deal. The stated delivery timeframe was very reasonable, and it even arrived piping hot early. The included garlic dipping sauce was a nice addition to the one specialty pie and we found the fare to be slightly above average.

Was staying at a local hotel. Had to drive top pick up the order. No delivery at this location. Ordered a combo plus pizza. It was average. I suggest the mgr of this store drives to the Lancaster Wi Happy Joes and learns how a pizza should be made.

There was a group of us in town for a soccer tournament so we called ahead to reserve a couple tables. The food was excellent and the restaurant was an 'old time' Happy Joe's that I remember from my youth. They had a somewhat separate room for birthdays, a few arcade type games, a separate area to purchase ice cream... More

If you have fond memories of birthday parties at Happy Joe's from your childhood, then make the trip to Dubuque to see this treasure! Just like you remember it, and the pizza (Happy Joe's special) is the best! Enjoy some ice cream in the parlor too! Nostalgic trip down memory lane for me. Try it!

I'm from out of town, went here with family members that live nearby. Huge variety of pasta, salads, sandwiches, pizza and ice cream. A medium pizza is plenty of food for three - we had leftovers. Pitcher of beer at a good price, and ice cream for dessert - where can you get a cone for 99 cents these days?... More
