Met some friends here for ice cream. service was slow and not friendly, bathrooms were not clean. Ice cream was nothing special. I have been here many times and the pizza is amazing! I'm reviewing this particular visit as average.

The buffet is usually top notch but not today. When we asked for dark meat chicken we were told they were done with making that today but two minutes later it appeared on the buffet. The mac and cheese pizza was bland and there was only one dessert pizza. Some staff were friendly but some were not and that doesn't... More

Having been to Happy Joes in Illinois, Iowa and North Dakota I was surprised to see a Happy Joes here while driving through town. As always the pizza was great, the service was good and the kids have a fun time. Happy Joes is a great place to have a bite to eat or a party for the kids.

Great food and service as always! We ordered a large pizza and cheesy bread and it was excellent. Large pizzas are so big that there is plenty for my husband and I and out 2 kiddos. (With left overs)! Next time we're trying the chicken!!

This place has the best taco pizza I have ever had. All of their pizzas are great. Located in a German town they have a pizza with sauerkraut on it! They have an excellent buffet including a good salad bar. They charge kids by their age - I think it was $0.35 per year old for the all you can... More

Driving by, saw lots of cars in parking lot and on street, went around block, found a place to park, and went in. Greeted by two very pleasant and helpful young ladies who were amazed that we were here from SW FL, they suggested the buffet as getting some of everything and the best value. We had and saw an...

Cute little pizza place with a small arcade on site. We had pizza and wings which were great. Salad bar is small but it was only $1.50....

Just always makes me Happy!! Yeah, I know that sounds corny but as I'm an expert in hamburgers - they have one of the tastiest - and their pizza's rank right at the top of any food chain. Just...very...tasty!! A fun atmosphere is there too, whether a 100-year-old kid or three, just an almost magical place to go. It's on... More

This is my son's favorite restaurant in New Ulm. Happy Joe's is popular for kids birthday parties and families with kids in general. (So, if you don't like kids, crowds, or loud places, you might want to stay away.) Most the staff are teenagers, so you get teenage service. But the pizza is good and we come here a lot... More
