Food and variety of pizza is good. Pleasant service but very noisy between the blaring TV's, kids parties, and no acoustics it was hard to carry on a conversation. Maybe it was just our timing. Will try dining in again. Currently have been using carry-out only.

Our server was very attentive and orchestrated. This is my husband's favorite pizza place in the area from his childhood, so we try to stop by when back in town. The food was not cooked very well and my salad was brown and on the downward side of fresh. Not sure we will be back.

Happy Joe's has always been famous for inventing wild and different pizza flavors over all the years. But a week ago I was craving Taco Pizza and knew it had to be Happy Joe's. Yes, it is more expensive than some of the other knock offs around town. But I have decided it is worth the price. Nobody else can... More

Ever since we moved to Bettendorf many years ago, we have found the most satisfying pizza to be Happy Joe's. From my first bite of pizza with Canadian bacon and sauerkraut, I knew this was the place to find pizza which has many locations throughout the Quad Cities.There are many kinds of pizza available, but for consistency of product, nothing...

The new Happy Joes is perfectly located off of W. Locust St. The pizza is delicious and they also serve dinners as well. It is roomy for bringing large families or groups and the service is awsome!

Taco Pizza, pastas and cheese sticks just some of my favorites. This HJ doesn't have the jungle bungle so much less noise. However they have moved into old Chefs Hat and I haven't been inside yet, but exterior looks very nice.

I've visited Happy Joe's twice now. It's unlike the Happy Joe's on Welcome Way- not noisy and no unsupervised kids running around. They always have good pizza but this one offers sandwiches and dinners, plus a yogurt bar. Nice for diners who enjoy their pizza but want a quieter place to visit with friends.
