Joe's is a staple in Effingham. Moving here in 2014, Joe's is a favorite for Friday night pizza, or their all you can eat pasta on Thursday nights. Great food and wonderful owner.

One of the best Chicago style pizzas I have ever had. The sauce in particular was spectacular. The service was also exceptional!

Visiting Effingham on business I wanted to try Joe's because the reviews on TA were good. I visited the restaurant on the second evening of my stay and I wasn't disappointed. The service was quick and the food was decent and prepared well. I ended up having something from Joe's the next two days as they catered for our company... More

We stopped in and picked up a couple pizzas to go while passing through on interstate. The chicken bacon ranch pizza was the best. You should definitely give Joe's Pizza at try. We loved it.

After a long day of travel we really wanted a pizza and a beer. Joe's hit the mark! We arrived at about 8pm on a Friday night and found the place to packed. Luckily there was a booth available and we were immediately seated. Our server quickly came by and got our drink order. As we enjoyed our beverages we... More

We eat at Joe's Pizza and Pasta pretty often, and have never been disappointed. I am a huge fan of their pizza...I love the thin crust and the sweet-tasting sauce! My wife's favorite is the Mostaccioli, with the Meat Ravioli a close second. The food shows up at your table quickly and the staff checks back on you often. And... More

We are here as a family recently and had the stuffed crust pizza - my favorite! It's a Chicago style pizza with the sauce on top. It's delicious!! Their sauce is kind of sweet and so addictive!

Don't eat here if you want what you order. The past 3 visits my wife or my order has been wrong. It doesn't matter about call in order or eat in order.

Had dinner here with friends early on Saturday evening. We had the family special which is salad, breadsticks and drinks for 4 along with an extra large pizza with two toppings for $23 and change. The service was outstanding and the portions large. We took pizza home with us. Can't say enough about the friendly atmosphere and good food. Will... More

If you want the best pizza Joes if the place. I must admit that the pasta dishes are just so-so. It was a disappointment that my wife and I just about couldn't fine the "meat" in the pasta. The salad that we each had was OK but for the price could have included a few more olives etc.
