I've never gotten a bad meal from Joe Bologna's, you can't beat their breadsticks anywhere. Many excellent dishes, but the chicken prima vera is my favorite.

I love eating at Joe B's. Some of us from work eat there regularly for lunch. The only complaint that I have is that if you get a lunch combo you can get a small side salad. If you order something else, like pizza, the only side salad you can get is $5. We did some calculations and you can... More

This was a fun, family-friendly place to eat while visiting the city on a quick trip. When looking for something totally out of the ordinary, this is your place. Inside an old church, this restaurant managed to keep the historic staples of the church while transforming the the main areas into functional eating booths and tables, adding flat-screen tvs for...

True italian flavor with family feel, this authentic pizza spot was friendly and delicious. We came as a 19 piece family including 4 under 4 yrs old and Joe and his crew help create a great family meal. We actually got to meet Joe after I mispronounced his name (its ya not ee). Thanks Joe.

Another great trip to Joe Bologna's. We tried something different with the supreme pizza, with anchovies! Although we really didn't taste them because the pizza was piled so high with other meaty options: pepperoni and bacon and sausage and yum! Breadsticks were great as usual, and another in our party loved the Mexican pizza.

Our most favorite place in Lexington! The menu has many options for all and is family friendly! Our kids really enjoy eating here - with the giant breadstick sitting in garlic butter as their favorite! We love the pastas, pizzas and sandwiches - all are very good. The atmosphere is wonderful - especially when there is a UK game on... More

This is a restored/updated 100+ year old church. High ceilings, a loft , stained glass windows, wood floor, etc. It specializes in pizza and pasta. Relaxed atmosphere We had a hand tossed pizza with our choice of toppings and a small was plenty for two. We went early & it was busy when we left. If I had to pick... More

We were NOT expecting such a cool place filled with so much history and fun and electricity! We didn’t realize there was a hugely accommodating parking lot in the back, so counted ourselves lucky to find a place on the street on a Saturday night. Being from out of town, we thought the main entrance was at the front of... More
