Description: Yaki Joe's Pizza is locally owned and independently operated by Sonya and Bobby Garcia. When they took over Yaki Joe's in 2007, they made inviting changes to decor and extensive changes to menu, including fresh and homemade. But those are only 2 of the elements that make Yaki Joe's in Merritt stand alone in the Pizza making business. Recommended for its extraordinary pizzas, Yaki Joe's is also being recognized for its excellence in food quality and taste. No matter what you're ordering off their menu, fresh is the order of the day, and handmade is the must, right down to the washing and slicing of vegetables, cooking and slicing of meats, and grating of cheeses. There's nothing "packaged" about this restaurant and there's no scrimping with ingredients or on portion sizes. Bobby and Sonya know that if they compromise with the ingredients they put the integrity of the recipe at risk and jeopardize the satisfaction of the customer - and that's why Yaki Joe's fan base has been steadily growing yearly. Our pizza and calzone menu is extensive, our 11 tasty varieties of wings are "the best" as our regular friends and customers tell us, and our pasta sauce is a family recipe that Sonya has honed to lip-smacking perfection. If you want something lighter but still heavy on taste, try a wrap or donair and a salad. Our fresh ingredients ensure that everything is ripe with flavour.

“Take Out Pizza”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

This is an excellent restaurant for pizza. It's like homemade and is not expensive! Great service and quality of food! There are tables available to eat in and they provide appropriate reading material while you wait to pick up your pizza.

“Great Local Pizza and Wraps”
Reviewed 4 July 2013

On our recent trip to visit on son and his family, we visited Yaki Joe's on the recommendation of a good friend you lives in Merritt. I had the Meat Lovers pizza and my wife had the BLTC (Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato and Cheese) sandwich. Upon returning to the hotel on that rainy night, we ate and enjoyed the fare. My grandson picked up half of my wife's sandwich and proceeded to devour it with delight, The pizza on balance was quite good. Topping were reasonable and the sauce was generous.

Their menu includes a wide variety of toppings and combinations. They also offer Wraps, Salads, Chicken Wings, Garlic Cheese Sticks, Spaghetti, Lasagna, and Ribs.

A great choice for a rainy night when you prefer to stay in and eat.

“Best in Merritt”
Reviewed 23 February 2013

Personally I think this is the best in Merritt and the lady who gave us our pizza by the slice was very nice. There are a few seats inside, the place is small but cozy.

“Great lunch stopover in Merritt”
Reviewed 6 January 2013

We often need a place to stop for lunch on the way from Big White Ski Resort or visiting friends in Kelowna or Penticton back to the lower mainland. This was a quick detour before getting on the Coquihalla highway. The food here was fresh, flavourful, and speedy. The kids had pizza, my husband had a very nice Greek salad and I had a donair. The employees were very friendly and helpful.
