Happy Joe's was my husband's favorite pizza and, for years, every Monday night was our family pizza night. Unfortunately, the quality of the pizza has diminished over time; incorrect orders, ingredients missing, over baked, etc. When the pizza is made properly, it is excellent. However, those times have become rare. We have ordered pizzas with extra cheese, only to find... More

The birthday guests were kept busy with all of the games in "the arcade-jungle" and afterwards , played in the playground area. It is noisy and frenzied but that is... More

Busy place with lots of stuff going on. Menu is weird but the pizza is ok. A local version of Chuckie Cheese with better pizza is the best description I can give. I have had far worse pizza but we went in with 3 families with 16 year old kids. It was a little busy for us to talk and... More

Very crowded and noisy. Lunch buffet had limited selections. My wife asked for a canadian bacon pizza which they promised to bring out, but never did. If any Happy Joe's big shots happen to read this review, I would like to know why my small gluten-free pizza is more expensive than the lunch buffet (which includes unlimited pizza, salad, and...

We made a special trip from Chicago for the pizza. The buffet is definitely worth it, but they are a little slow at bringing out the pizzas when it gets busy.

Happy Joes has the absolutely best taco pizza anywhere! And the other pies are great too. Big town taste in a small town atmosphere.

My wife and I just split a small pizza here, and it was good. Just good. Nothing spectacular, but a decent pizza at a decent price. I think the small was just over $10, and we had "customized" toppings. Probably worth going to in a pinch. Maybe not a destination, but decent pizza.

The Taco Pizza was as amazing as I remembered it 20 years ago! The Jungle gym was too fun!! Staff was super friendly!

Not your average pizza place! Great buffet! Any pizza I thought about trying was offered at one point or another.
