I visit this location regularly because it is near my house. For awhile, it struggled with consistency. Not sure what they have done, but recently it has been exceptional every time we visit. Give it a try!

The food is always unique and prepared wonderfully. I could (and sometimes do) go back every week to try something new. The staff have always been friendly and courteous. Unfortunately, there have been two times now at this locations where they've mixed up our orders. Once was for a gluten sensitive person who fortunately does not get terrible side effects.... More

Great menu and ambiance. Good wine list. All in all a great start.... But (yeah, one of those snuck in) this restaurant needs help with their serving staffs ability to bring food in a timely fashion and Followup with a table to ensure things are good. Ok, so I had to go to another table to get us our "setups"... More

My wife, son and I recently enjoyed a wonderful meal at Not Your Average Joe's in Randolph, MA. It was our anniversary and we wanted a fresh experience. NYAJ did not disappoint. The chef has included seasonal ingredients in his totally yummy selections. We started with a flat bread that included prosciutto, butternut squash and balsamic. For our entrees we... More

As always, NYAJ's is my go to for dinner when someone drops by and it gets to be about food time. This time my brother stopped by and we wanted a bite to eat. Walk in on a weeknight, it was a 1 1/2 glass of wine wait for a table (so maybe 1/2 hour or so?...not bad to me).... More

I have visited the Not Your Average Joe's in Randolph, MA several times, and every time, it's perfection.....from the greatly priced deals, to the service, and all around attitudes of the staff and managers. Not Your Average Joe's recognizes that cooking with fresh ingredients doesn't go un-noticed, which is why I will continue going back for more. This location is... More

This was just 5 minutes down the road from where we were staying (recommended by our hotel). Staff was overly nice and accomodating. We seemed to go on a busy night, but were able to get right in. I had the coconut shrimp for an app and Sirloin tips for dinner -- it was really good. I had plenty of... More

Large Cheese Pizza and 2 starters for $19.99. Well worth the trip. Nice Bar area but fills up Weekends and there is a wait. Tom O'Connor

This is our go to spot...occasionally for take out. Creative menu always being tweaked and changed...while keeping just enough of our favorites at the same time. Great selection...fresh ingredients...friendly capable staff. Chain restaurant done right. My favorite is their own take on meatloaf believe it or not. Terrific apps...half price during "happy hour" before 6 PM in the bar/lounge.

What I really needed, when I got to Boston, was a beer and burger for my dinner - and this place really delivered. A great menu, lots of specials and really, honestly friendly staff. I'll hope to return!

What does creative casual cuisine mean? Exactly what it says. We"re creative, because we reject the same-old-same-old in favor of tastes that are interesting and unique. We're casual because while our food may be worth getting dressed up for, we invite you to come as you are. We're all about cuisine in the sense that our chefs apply high standards of culinary art. There it is. Creative. Casual. Cuisine. If it sounds like your kind of place, then you – like us- are not your average Joe.
