My older brother and I went here a while ago since its the only buffet type place in new ulm, I was honestly expecting a small run down type of place, but the inside surprised me. Totally clean, very friendly staff and incredible pizza. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone and everyone!

It's wonderful to go on buffet night to get to taste all the pizzas (the best taco pizza I've had) and the TaterTot Hotdish - voted the best hotdish in Minnesota.

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.

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
