I have visited Not Your Average Joe's in Burlington many times. Each time the warm focaccia bread with the olive oil poured atop a pile of grated cheese begins a wonderful dining experience. On my most recent visit, my husband and I tried the butternut squash flatbread that was listed as an appetizer. It is a very generous flatbread -... More

Extremely flavor rich dishes! Been here many times and haven't tried these dishes until tonight! Will definitely get again! The Spaghetti Squash Bolognese was a delicious and nutritious vegetarian friendly and Gluten-Free meal. The Harvest Mac-n-cheese was also delicious with a very little kick and vegetarian (when x'ing the chicken) can also be Gluten-Free when requesting the Gluten-free Pasta.

Service is very good. They have a decent sized gluten free menu and they make sure it was delivered separately to prevent any cross-contamination! Nice atmosphere and not terribly loud so conversation was easy. I am a big fish lover and I had their clam chowder which was excellent, and the herb-crusted haddock. They even let me substitute a veggie... More

Found this place to be very family friendly. Great menu for kids and adults. Lots to choose from. Food came out hot, quality and service were very good and actually had no complaints. Not fine dining but it was the right place at the right time. Worth the value. Plenty of free parking.

We liked we could walk to this restaurant from our hotel after we had driven all day. Small glitch with on-line reservation, but that is what smart phones are for and they took care of us promptly . Great meal-everyone got different things and plates were cleaned. Service very good. We will come back next time in town.

If you haven't their breads with olive oil dip, I highly recommend that you do then you'll understand why I'm hooked. Most times, I simply order their bread with a side of clam chowder. Yup, it's that yummy.

As a Bat I would rate just average. However, this place has good food and a fun and casual atmosphere. N one week, I was here twice. Once I had a nice chicken parmigiana and the second for lunch cesar salad, a fresh and tasty hamburger with delicious fries. Service is great.

First off, I have to say we had a great server!! Amy was knowledgeable about GF choices and so personable that we even stopped to make a comment to the manager on duty at the time.

Description
What does creative casual cuisine mean? Exactly what it says. We"re creative, because we reject the same-old-same-old in favor of tastes that are interesting and unique. We're casual because while our food may be worth getting dressed up for, we invite you to come as you are. We're all about cuisine in the sense that our chefs apply high standards of culinary art. There it is. Creative. Casual. Cuisine. If it sounds like your kind of place, then you – like us- are not your average Joe.
