We ate here recently on an overnight stop in Effingham. The pizza is excellent and they even have an Extra Small size. The salad was enough for 2 to share. The restaurant serves Italian pasta dishes as well as pizza. It is easy to get to from the local hotels and appears to be a very popular place for families... More

I sought out a local restaurant in Effingham rather than a chain restaurant. This restaurant was recommended by a friend. The staff was very accommodating. They allowed me to dine at a high top in the bar area so I could enjoy NCAA basketball as a solo diner. There were many reasonably priced pasta and pizza offerings on the menu.... More

We travel to Effingham 4 times per year--always order from Joe's--disappointed that Greek salad had no beets or garbanzo beans when delivered.

Thursday night is all you can eat spaghetti and garlic bread sticks along with a salad. The spaghetti is very good and has a sweet sauce with a little meat in it. You can also order meat balls if you wish, but you will pay extra for them. The cost for tow people with soda was only $14.95. you do... More

After a long day of driving all over eastern Illinois, we decided to call-in an order to Joe's in Effingham so we would have a tasty meal we could heat up when we got home to Springfield. Ordering was an easy process after looking at the online menu. We arrived at Joe's to pick up our order 20 minutes later.... More

Joe's is a staple in Effingham. Moving here in 2014, Joe's is a favorite for Friday night pizza, or their all you can eat pasta on Thursday nights. Great food and wonderful owner.

One of the best Chicago style pizzas I have ever had. The sauce in particular was spectacular. The service was also exceptional!

Visiting Effingham on business I wanted to try Joe's because the reviews on TA were good. I visited the restaurant on the second evening of my stay and I wasn't disappointed. The service was quick and the food was decent and prepared well. I ended up having something from Joe's the next two days as they catered for our company... More

We stopped in and picked up a couple pizzas to go while passing through on interstate. The chicken bacon ranch pizza was the best. You should definitely give Joe's Pizza at try. We loved it.
