I have to admit that I ordered a burger med well. That was my mistake. It was way over cooked. Lesson learned. The bread and olive oil prior to dinner was great. Service was very good. Basically your average pub food

Not Your Average Joe's also doesn't have your average gluten-free options. They have a dedicated, two-page menu with burgers, baked fish, salads and more to choose from. The prices aren't gouging either, which makes it a true oasis for celiacs.

Pros: Ample parking behind restaurant--some of it is metered. Very good food--good selection for the whole family. Reasonable prices, good value. Cons: Parking lot behind restaurant has many tripping hazards--especially bad behind the bank. Be careful walking to/from your car. Service was slow
