A friend told me about their meatball subs. I am a sucker for meatball subs. These were very good but the very low price was a surprise. It is not a fancy place and not a prom night kind of place but for a good food with money left to go dancing, it is very good.

Amazing pizza! Authentic! Inexpensive too. The only negative is they do not deliver. The staff is friendly. The location is great, out of the way from all of the chain restaurants.

I have been a loyal customer of Joe's for takeout pizza 30 years. Usually get a pizza every 3 weeks or so. Over the years, pretty consistently good-great crust, cheesy and delicious. The last year the quality has really declined. The amount of toppings, cheese is sometimes half as usual, with cheese only in center, with an inch or two... More

I've been hearing about Joe's for a couple of years now from my co-workers and finally decided to try it. First of all, we got a large pizza with 5 toppings for only $18 and some change. Now that's a bargain!!! We picked up our pizza to go but may try dining in next time. We are pretty picky about... More

We get Joe's most weekends - much better for takeout as the time for waiting for dinner is a long one - seems to be more irregular now with toppings depending on if the owner or if another person is making the pizza's. Much better is the owner in on the line - he does a fantastic job and has... More

We tried to go here after a movie. The web site said they open at 1600 but the door says 1630. We went somewhere else.

Best pizza I have ever eaten. My new favorite pizza place. Amazing. Wonderful waiter and very clean place. The sausage has a amazing garlic flavor. The creamy garlic dressing for the salad was wonderful. We will be back

The pizza is addicting from the hand tossed crust to the yummy fresh & piled on toppings. The mozzarella cheese and toppings are the finest in the area! The lettuce salad topped with fresh mozzarella & Joe's House dressing is delish and we would go for the salad alone. The meatballs and sauce are quite flavorful and handmade. Pepsi products... More

I can't complain about the food but we waited over an hour and a half for our pizza.... then watched the table that came in a half hour after us get their pizza first. If you want Joe's, call your order in for pickup, do not dine in.
