A word from Not Your Average Joe's Lansdowne
What does creative casual cuisine mean? Exactly what it says. We're creative, because we reject the same-old-same-old in favor of tastes that are interesting and unique. We're casual because while our food may be worth getting dressed up for, we invite you to come as you are. We're all about cuisine in the sense that our chefs apply high standards of culinary art. There it is. Creative. Casual. Cuisine. If it sounds like your kind of place, then you – like us- are not your average Joe.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "The food was wonderful. Being gluten free, it's hard to find somewhere that can accommodate your needs. NYAJ's did a great job! Everyone else in my party loved their food too. It was a Friday night so they were super busy. Service wasn't the greatest but it was hard to tell if it was because of when we were there or if it's like that all the time."

  • "We have been visiting NYAJ's in Landsdowne, VA since it opened. Always fresh menu items and the standbys aren't ever tiring. Quality of the food is always excellent, and they keep the wine list and available beers very active. We never rgeret taking a family trip to Joe's or bringing a guest."

  • "Even though this is 30+ minutes from our house it was worth the trip in many ways and we will be back! Our table was ready as we arrived and were promptly seated. It was around 7pm on a Saturday night and the place was very busy, but our waiter and manager both greeted us at our table within a minute of being seated. A large selection of items on the menu. What we ordered was very good. The Bread and oil dipping sauce was fantastic. Ate too much before the meal. Service was just right! We never felt rushed but they were checking up enough and refilled water as needed. Food was delivered promptly even for such a busy night. Peanut butter Thing desert definitely a winner and should be shared between at least two people."

  • "We came here for an early dinner as an adult date with baby night and we were really blown away. The tuna wontons were absolutely delicious. Their house made bread is addictive. I had the chicken enchiladas and they were amazingly yummy...my husband had the chicken piccata and he was very happy. The food is a creative take on Americana. We will absolutely be back. It's so refreshing to go somewhere with great food without pretentiousness."

  • "I had a party of 10 and wanted a casual place outside of Leesburg but with really good food. I searched the opentable app and read the reviews and tired this place. All 10 of my party loved thier dinner and the service. A party of 10 can be hard to please and in this case AJ's gets a 10!! I'll be back, and that was what several in the party said as well."

  • "We walked in and the table was ready for us with warm bread on the table. We only had a party of 6 so I was surprised to see this level of service for a restaurant that doesn't use tablecloths. The food was good, service was speedy, they were accommodating to our children by making a special side that was on the menu. It was a great dining experience."

  • "We were given royal treatment there being an Anniversary Card at our excellent booth upon arrival. Our server Caleb was most friendly and also was our hostess Nicole. Our food was excellent. Starting with the bread and dipping sauce. Delicious! We had a rum infused pineapple drink that was on spot Chicken Waldorf Salad with pecans and apples and grapes was so tasty Cod fillets over a square of rice, which absorbed the delicious sauce it was prepared with was sumptuous! We had the peanut butter thing for dessert and it was a mild and melt in your mouth We got a free dessert, so my husband had the apple/caramel pie We went early and even with that the atmosphere was romantic for us. We will definitely go back and bring friends!!"

  • "This particular visit, the bar service was very slow and the food service as well. We have been there a number of times but the last two times there was a noticeable slow pace. We plan on lunch or dinner to be about an hour or so. This last visit was nearly two hours."

  • "When you make a reservation ask for your table setting (booth, corner, etc). We were stuck in the pass through between the kitchen and the bar and felt like we were in the server freeway!"

  • "Our server Nick was very helpful when we told him it was our first time there. He pointed out items on the menu and made sure to pay attention to our tween. This made him feel important. The food was delicious and service great. The manager came over and welcomed us as she knew it was our first time."

  • "Overall I had a great experience @ NYAJ's. I had a reservation for 5 pm, but due to traffic I was running late and was able to switch it to 5:15 pm. Friendly environment with really good food."

  • "Our party of 4 had a great time. All food was very good with the exception of one entree -- the Pork Two Ways. It was very disappointing as the cuts of meat were not good at all."

  • "This was our 4th time having dinner at Not Your Average Joe's. I was surprised that when we got the reservation on Open Table it was set for 8PM but the manager called me and told me about the problem they had wight he system and let em change my reservation to 7PM which was perfect. Great restaurant and great service. So you wold think that on Valentines day the seating would be very late but we were seated within 5 minutes of our reservation. Again a great restaurant. The food was great and the service very good as always. e will be back again."

  • "We have been going to Not Your Average Joe's for years. Not as good as it used to be. My daughter ordered the pulled pork. Asked the waiter if it was shredded and not chunks he assured her it was "shredded". It wasn't it was chunks and very dry."

  • "Joe's is our first choice for lunch and dinner, but we try to branch out sometimes. The service has always been outstanding but, more importantly for me, the food is consistently good. I have probably eaten there over 50 times and have had only one or two disappointments, which were quickly taken care of. My only desire is that Joe's add more organic and locally sourced foods. And, of course, the bread is fabulous and a reason to go, all on its own!"

  • "Their food is great - lots of choices with seasonal variations and specials. Their service is the best. I am not a wine drinker so cannot comment on that aspect."

  • "Very popular, call ahead or get reservations. We reserved thru Open Table and was able to walk right in even though they had folks waiting. Always new menu choices and bar drinks, always excellent. Service was outstanding. Only complaint is it gets somewhat loud."

  • "Amen for NYAJ's gluten-free menu. We brought new guests (and very dear friends) to NYAJ's for dinner, and they had an extensive menu for our friend with a gluten intolerance. He was so excited about all the choices, and everyone really enjoyed their meals and the experience because everyone could get something without feeling badly about someone else's limits. NYAJ's even had a separate gluten-free bread for him when we sat down!! Everyone should know about Joe's!"

  • "Dining here was not bad. I would eat here again. It was crowded and loud. We had a reservation and didn't get seated until 30 min later. They made up for this by giving us 3 appetizers on the house. The appetizers were excellent. Much better than the entrees."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "Really good food and a great gluten free menu. One of the only restaurants to offer gluten free bread to accompany entrees. Their regular bread and seasoned oil dip is so delicious that it is difficult to finish your entree. I almost always have food to take home."

  • "I have been to "Not Your Average Joes" multiple times for consistent great food and service. We go there as a family and it is my favorite place to meet up with friends or business colleagues. The menu is varied and well prepared. The only negative is that the bread and dip that they serve is so delicious that I cannot resist it! Great spot to go for lunch or dinner."

  • "We are frequent diners at NYAJ and always find the food and service to be excellent. I had a birthday coupon which gave me a free desert and entree. There was no restriction on what I could order. I chose two of the monthly specials the Southern fried chicken and the cinnamon stick desert. The desert was more than adequate for sharing. The chicken came with two excellent out of the ordinary vegetables - grilled sweet potato and brussel sprouts glazed with maple syrup. I could easily have just eaten the vegetables as an entree."

  • "We've traveled a lot, and enjoy variety of approaches to cooking - but we're not exactly "avant garde". Not Your Average Joe's is no copy cat o others' menus or recipes, but the food clearly appeals to a wide cross-section -- and certainly to us. When we go out, this is one of our favorite spots!"
