There's a LOT more to Little Joe's besides pizza, and it's ALL delicious. Please note: They're not open for lunch.

Let me start by saying you have to like thin crust to like Little Joe's. That is the only kind of pizza they serve. It is fantastic. Everything is fresh and made to order. The breadsticks are the best I've ever put in my mouth. They are crispy outside, soft inside and garlicy. You can get a side of spaghetti sauce to dip them in. They are free with your order and can't be beat. The pizza is a thin crust, cut in squares. It is loaded with cheese and fresh ingredients and it hits your table piping hot. They also have lots of great pasta, made fresh to order. The salad bar is of reasonable size and it is always fresh. You can see them in the back breaking up the lettuce. They serve beer and soft drinks, and the diet coke is good and strong (diet coke fans will know what that means). It is a small place and often crowded on the weekends, so be patient with your waiter. Lauren is our favorite. This place is not fancy but it is always clean. And you are always treated like family. Travis runs the show and he always makes time to speak, ask how things are and talk to you like you've been friends forever. It is kid, family and date friendly. All in all, you just can't go wrong here. I highly recommend the Little Joe's combo. There are 3 booths right in front of the pizza oven and it is a treat to watch the guys make great pies. I've been coming here for 25 of the 40 years they have been in business. I've never had a bad, or even mediocre, meal.
