    The food was amazing but the service was slow. Our server brought us out a pitcher of sangria but no glasses. She took like 20 minutes to bring them over. All the glasses had lip stick on them like she took them out of the dirty dishes.

    Overall, a very enjoyable experience; food was great. Service was initially very spotty - despite having a reservation, they were not prepared for us when we arrived and seemed perplexed about where to seat us. We waited about 15 minutes for a server to come by - after we complained to the manager, things were better.

    They would not seat us or honor the Open Table reservation we booked. The restaurant was very empty and there were many available times on OpenTable. But the two hostesses claimed they were booked for the next 3 hrs and “should have shut off the app”. It seemed like they did not want to seat us due to our three children (who were quiet and respectful)! I kept checking the app for the next few hours and it continued to show numerous open reservation times. We will not be going back to Not Your Average Joes again!!!

    Ahi Tuna Wonton appetizer was great. Jambalaya was bland and small portion for the cost. Service was slow. Beer taps not working so no draught beer available and no craft beer choices available in can/bottle.

    Was anxious to try onion soup which looked delicious posted for January special. It was nasty…sour… not cheesy sent it bad to kitchen. Waiter very nice & took it off our bill. Was also looking forward to cheese steak eggrolls that server said they were out of. Third selection special blue cheese burger was very tasty but they substituted arugula with a thickly sliced tomato… Last time there saw a mouse should have remembered & chosen different restaurant.

    Food has gotten very expensive for what you get, my Mustard Chicken BLT was fairly tasteless and had very little bacon, lettuce or tomato. The menu said there was coleslaw, but it was not included. We haven't been there in a while and the last time we were outside. The booth I was in had a ripped seat that had been patched with tape. Hostess was friendly and got us seated promptly, waiter was very good.

    Have been here a few times. Like the atmosphere (open space, usually moderate noise level and TV's for sports view). Also, really like the diverse menu options and food quality has usually been very good. Last visit was disappointed in temp of burger ordered and took a while for replacement. Also, took the sides away so had nothing to eat while waiting for replacement.

    Ripped benches. Service was attentive, but food was mediocre at best. Really lacking in flavor. And severely overpriced for quality and quantity. We ordered several things to share among the table. But example of poor quality/value: $16 for 2 small, dry cheesesteak egg rolls. Will most likely choose another restaurant next time we're in the area.

    Turns out, it really was JUST Your Average Joe’s. We made a reservation but it didn’t appear to be taken into account when seating us. Server was the plus. She was attentive and helpful. Furnishings a bit worn. We didn’t get a place setting until we asked and two dirty dishes were still on the table when seated. Food ok.

    Great ambience, very busy place. We got seated at a terrible table for 2 at the top of the stairs with constant traffic. The Cuban was rather bland, but the fries were good. The mustard chicken was good, as were the green beans and mashed potatoes. We also got the Korean wings which were tasty. Was too full for dessert but the peanut butter thing is something I highly recommend.

    Our waitress was seriously inexperienced. First, my wife ordered Chardonnay and I ordered a Cabernet Savignon. She brought us two red wines. Not even realizing that a Chardonnay is a white. Then our entrées were mixed up. The right food in total, but the combinations were wrong. However, since our waitress never came back to ask us if everything was OK we never had a chance to explain to her the problem. Then she brought us a check and never returned to collect our payment. After 20 minutes we just paid the check electronically online and walked out. Very disappointing.
