From the moment I walked in I knew this place was different! This is old school Philadelphia at its best. I was immediately greeted with a smile and this was followed by exceptional service and one perfectly cooked pepperoni pizza! A man named Steven was attentive and ran a tight ship. If you are in Fox Chase definitely stop in... More

This old school pizza place needs a Restaurant Impossible update. On our visit, the booths were worn out and taped and the whole place dirty. The decor is thirty years old and needs to go in the dumpster. Our pizza was marginal and the sandwiches only slightly better. With all of the pizza places in this area, you can do... More

This place has a nice atmosphere with a good size menu. The prices don't knock your socks off. My family recommends the pizza fries!

We have been going to Joseph's for many years and I have never did an evaluation for them. First, the menu is extensive and well priced for any selection. Food is above average and served promptly. A must stop for area travelers.

What was good in the 1980's is terrible today. They've lost it big tome. Pizza is terrible. Ellio's is better! Don't go back, you will kill the memories!

Just back in Philly and stopped for a pie at Josephs. Loved the sauce and cheese. The pie crust was kinda fluffy, not bad just not thin crust crisp. I enjoyed the pie as did my partner but will probably try someone else next. I will return to try their cheesesteaks which smelled and looked terrific.

Still going after all these years (37) but may have just been there for the final time and know I will miss the pizza, cheesesteaks, salads, etc. The decor, which at one time was exciting, is now old & dirty. The ceiling is filthy by the vents Will not return 4 this reason, sorry. Needs a good cleaning.

Wow, used to be very good, now pizza steaks are low quality. No much meat, stale rolls, no flavor, not baked as all good pizza steaks should be.

We have been favoring Vincent's in Rockledge over Joseph's because the food is much better and Vincent and his family are glad to serve you. We haven't been to Josephs in a while and thought we would give it a try. We had just arrived back from North Carolina, and I felt like having a beer with dinner, so we... More
