Description: We offer generous portions of great food at reasonable prices and Nobody does pizza better than Joey Garlic's. We offer New Haven-style brick oven pizza, which has a crust similar to rustic peasant bread in texture and is cooked to a darker color which allows the toppings to blend together. The longer cooking time also allows the different ingredients to carmelize, bringing out their natural bold sweet or savory flavors. We top most of our pies with fresh-snipped fragrant basil and the finest extra virgin olive oil. If you prefer a less-baked pizza, just ask. Say "light-baked." The rest of our extensive menu features Salads, Starters, Pastas, Old School Grinders, old fashioned Hamburgers, giant Milkshakes, ice cream and even a kid's menu that is simple and appetizing for young appetites. Quantity and quality that will absolutely amaze you.

I don't exactly live close to this resturaunt but it is worth the drive everytime I go. The food is delicious and plenty. I end up having leftovers that both me and my son eat on for days. The price is so reasonable. The only issue is if you don't get there early enough the wait can be almost 2 hours. Not sure any food is worth the a 2 hour wait.

Food here is good but huge portions.Plan to carry some home. Some things are not good for taking home such as their large salads, etc. My main complaint is they have never changed the menu since they opened quite a while back.
Service was fine.

Went to Joey Garlic's for the first time yesterday. The food was delicious, the service - exemplary. Appetizers are built to share with 2-4 people. Dinners are varied, plentiful and delicious. You will bring 1/2 of your entree home for the next day. Dessert is not to be missed...about 1/2 way through dinner order the doughnuts as they take about 15 mins prep as they are cooked to order. On the weekends go early for dinner and go hungry! We had 2 apps, 6 entrees and 2 desserts and not a bad item arrived at the table. Want to give the owners your feedback...text them for your table..convenient and real time. Can't go wrong with Joey Garlic's!

Stopped here after hearing many good reviews about this restaurant. One of the best things I ever did- This place is AMAZING! The food is authentic, beyond delicious, affordable, and the portions are HUGE! I've tried the pizza, the salad, the apps, etc and everything is always fantastic. Service is superior. Kudos to the staff and chefs= you all know how to do it right!
