I have been going to this location since I was a kid. The pizza is always good, and I've turned both of my kids into Happy Joe's lovers. Occasionally, we are lucky enough to get the lunch buffet, but we still always have to order an additional Taco Joe to complete our experience. Love this place!

We have been going to Happy Joes for 30+ years. The food is always good. Their taco pizza is the best! It's great for small children birthdays. Over the years the games were so all kids regardless of ages were able to get tickets thus turn in for a prize. They have in the last year "updated" their games and... More

While Happy Joe's has some of the best pizza around (especially the Taco Pizza) this particular location in the chain is not one to visit for their lunch buffet. We have been to most of the chains around the original Bettendorf, IA location and they all take requests for what pizzas to put out on the buffet including Taco, Canadian... More

Very good lunch buffet. The salad on the salad bar was very fresh with a great variety. The pizza selection was also very good. Great cinnamon dessert pizza!

The taco pizza at this establishment is worth a stop in St. Louis every time you are within a couple of hours. The atmosphere is fun with a small arcade and colorful decor. The ice cream is yummy. But the reason to go out of your way? - the Taco Pizza!

Although we love Happy Joe's for wonderful ice cream and pizza -- especially, the "Happy Joe's Special" (Canadian Bacon and sauerkraut) and "Taco Joe" -- it's the ideal spot for kiddies and parents alike. We've been going there for 20 years -- in fact, split a large Happy Joe's Special for Valentine's Day -- and have thrown and attended more... More

Don't let the "decor" fool you, this place is worth it. The owner of Happy Joe's originally worked for Shakey's pizza so if the taste seem familiar, thats why. My, wife hates this place because it's loud (kids screaming and running around) and not the most refined atmosphere. I don't see any of that, all I see is the best... More

I have been going to Happy Joe's since I was a little kid. Over 20 years later I still go and the food hasn't changed! Always friendly workers and great food!
