Every time I go here it’s a disappointment. The bread is usually stale and the service is poor. The food is just meh.

Loved the knowledgeable staff and large gluten free selection. They even give you a gluten free bread roll so you’re not left out when everyone else is enjoying the bread and butter.

Every time we eat here they manage to screw up our order. I know it's hard to be picky but if you're going to bother with it, at least eat there rather than get takeout; you may end up waiting a half an hour but at least they can fix their mistake if they make one (they will). Whether or not the new dish is any good is a crap shoot.

Being new to the Gluten free world, I've been afraid to go out to eat. I came here and instantly felt at ease with the knowledgeable and caring staff. They brought out gluten free bread and dipping oil for me, I was thrilled. I highly recommend Not your average Joe's.

I was here in October 2015 for an exchange and they have a GF menu and they know a lot about celiac disease. Staff was very kind.

It's a burger joint. 3 of us ate there only one of us is celiac. I was offered gf bread and seperate dipping. Very good. But we all ordered our burgers med and came back burnt n greasy yet still pink inside. I will not return. To high priced for quality of food.

We ate here last night and the food and service were terrific. They have a huge and very impressive GF menu. Our server noticed immediately that I was looking at the GF menu and asked me if I wanted a GF roll. She brought out a delicious and very soft onion roll. I would definitely go back and recommend this place.

8/9/15 they have added GF Mac and cheese to kids menu and GF carrot cake to dessert options.

9/21/13 We've had takeout and ate at the restaurant at least a dozen times over the past year and we've had mixed experiences (missing items from takeout) but I'll bump up my rating because they appear to be improving.

10/25/12 GF rolls, separate GF menu. Not much for GF dessert except sorbet. Not much for my daughter except a burger (on GF bun). Waitress wouldn't bring out Hoodsie for her because she thought it was not GF (but it is according to Hood). 3 stars for a family 4 if you go w/o kids.

Although Joe's offers a nice GF menu, I was not a fan of their caramelized onion rolls which is their bread alternative. My server was not very knowledgable with the gluten free options or which items of these were dairy free. Hopefully their staff will become more knowledgable and they will have other bread options soon!

I fell in love with this place instantly. I am a very sensitive celiac and was good to go here. For the first time in about 2 years I had bread and dipping oil. It was unbelievably good. They make all their own gfree bread. I had the burger with a gfree bun. Their bread and buns are some of the best gfree breads I've ever had. Burger was excellent. They had heir own gluten free menu. Just love this place!!!!!

So careful not to cross contaminate!! Give you a gf onion roll and seperate dipping oil. Food is brought over by the manager also. I had the chicken piccata with gf pasta and it was so good my mom was questioning if it was gf or not until she could taste the difference! There is gluten free done good and gluten free done right. Usually gluten free done right isn't good and gluten free done good isn't done right, somehow they managed to make it good and right! Really is not the average gluten free menu like it says!

I was given exceptional service! My waitress was so kind, and my food was brought over by the manager. I ordered a Waldorf salad with low-cal Zinfandel dressing on the side. I didn't have the dressing, but the salad was wonderful! I was also given a a gfree onion roll (they are Gillian's brand). It was obviously microwaved, but it was still good. I was also given my own dipping oil. I didn't try it, so I don't know if it is any different from their regular dipping oil. Overall, pretty good place to eat out. Lots of options on the menu.

Excellent GF menu, and strict GF policy. The manager carried all of my dishes over while the server carried everything else, which guaranteed no cross-contamination. As soon as I ordered an entree off the GF menu, the manager came over and I asked if I wanted the GF bread & oil before my meal. Felt safe eating here, and got a great meal!

Joe’s is truly a great Gluten Free restaurant. Many safe and delicious GF offerings, including dinner rolls that are great. Always delivered to my table separately from the others. Fresh, creative, and seasonal. In 3 years of visits there has never been a problem.

I’ve eaten here countless times, the food is always delicious and i’ve never had an issue with contamination. The staff is super knowledgeable and understanding, and the GF rolls they have are amazing. Zero complaints.

I have eaten here before in the restaurant and had a good experience. The servers were knowledgeable and things came out fine.

DO NOT ORDER DELIVERY/TAKE AWAY!! I had a craving so I ordered online and picked items marked gluten sensitive and made a note. The food tasted good but I was sick about 45 mins later with a gluten reaction.

Staff is very knowledgeable, they even have a gf roll to bring out when everyone else gets the pre-meal bread! A fair amount of options, not the entire menu but you definitely have choices to make. We've been a handful of times and have always enjoyed the food.
