Ambiance is very good - the service was quick and friendly even though the restaurant was very packed. They provide enormous quantity in the Nonna's Old country dishes and any other Pasta dishes. Overall a happy outing.

Never had a bad meal. The pizza and wings are my favorite. Service is good. If you come on a busy night you might be waiting a while. I really like the seperate take out window.

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.
