A word from Not Your Average Joe's Westborough
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
  • "All dinner items were good. Plates were filling. Wait staff was very attentive. Good for simple lunch or dinner. "
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "Had lunch on Easter, the restaurant was not crowded, our waitress was excellent. Our entrees were good, and the cocktails (Moscow Mules and a Mojito) were delicious. When you go to a restaurant that offers a huge variety in types of dishes, it's tough to be the best at those dishes compared, to say, a strictly Greek or Italian restaurant for those types of entrees, so considering this, the restaurant did a good job at putting together a special of the day (which one of us had). The other entree ordered (a turkey kabob with orzo) was good as well. The bread they serve is delicious."

  • "Made advance reservation, when arrived no tables available. Had to wait for available seating, making the purpose of having a reservation unclear. Service was very good, drinks rather expensive for restaurant of this type. Food well prepared but overall fair."

  • "We always enjoy Wed wine night and the discount movies tickets with the 15% off meal deal. "
    Dined on 4/16/2014
  • "Their name says it all, Not Your Average Joe's. and it is definitely not/ The food is always prepared to your request and they go out of their way to insure you get what you want. The menu has monthly specials and offers a wide variety of well prepared, healthy options. Have eaten at several and you can always count on consistency of preparation and presentation from restaurant to restaurant. Stop by, you'll be glad you did."

  • "Outstanding service and food, music a little too loud"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Our waiter was outstanding. He was there when we needed something but didn't hover. Recognized we wanted to linger and catch up and gave us all the space we wanted. Meal was very good, too. Have been there a number of times and would and have recommended to friends and family."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "We loved your new (gluten free) carrot cake, delicious!"
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "Starting with the scrumptious bread and dipping oil, the meals were plentiful, delicious and nicely presented. Thanks for a nice birthday celebration NYAJ!"
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "We've eaten here many times and will continue to patronize. The food is always fantastic and the specials are always worth considering. One of the better service providers as well, holding their servers to higher standards than normal chain restaurants. Haven't been disappointed yet, though the noise level can be a challenge."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "One of the few chefs around that really knows how to cook fish! It's always perfect!"
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "Enjoy dining here, like trying the different specials. I had the Greek Lamb dish with yogurt and would highly recommend it. We like eating at the high top tables in the bar area. Very comfortable. My companions had a chicken dish which they liked."

  • "Cranberry-teriyaki chicken with butternut squash cannelloni is an amazing find. There are so many good things on the menu, but I find it hard to drift away from a known gem. More about the dish: pan-seared chicken breasts with a cranberry-teriyaki glaze, house-made butternut squash cannelloni and sautéed spinach"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "I really enjoyed the meal. The service was outstanding. The only drawback was that it was very noisy. We were meeting another couple to discuss an upcoming trip and had difficulty hearing each other. We were sitting in a 4 person booth halfway between the bar and the wall. Overall, great time, but would have chosen a quieter venue if this is typical noise levels. Much better food and service than any chain restaurant I've been to."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "I was pleasantly surprised that when I arrived at 6:20 for our 6:30 reservation that the table was ready and they seated us immediately before our whole party was there. I appreciated that. It was very crowded with a wait time etc, and they honored our table. I feel like a lot of places just put you on the wait list even with a reservation. The food was delicious, the service was wonderful. We had a great night."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "food was excellent, but all courses were served one on top of the other with no time to savor dishes felt too rushed"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Not your average joes is always a favorite of ours! The bread with oil is the best, I fill up on it every time! The restaurant is kid friendly, making it a stress free dinner when we bring our baby. The meals are always delicious and are great portions. I uses my birthday coupon this time...such a great deal! You can't beat a free meal and dessert!"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "The food was very good, hot when served an prepared as requested. I would like to see more options for healthy eating less sauce and more pure food options that are gluten free. I had hoped for steak tips but the only steak on the gluten free menu was flant steak. To chewy for a girls lunch out."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Our experience at this restaurant was extremely very good. The waitress we had that night was attentive, considerate, knowledgeable of the menu. The meals were served at the allotted time .The food was cooked wonderfully. The menu selections are not overwhelming and everyone enjoyed the selections. We all agreed that we have to come back soon to try something else..and we will."

  • "NYOJ's always strives to have a creative and interesting, PLUS tasty! Always a great choice for dining out."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "A wide range of foods to please just about anyone - American food, fusion food, vegetarian options - and everything was very fresh, especially the fish. They do not use tons of salt to compensate for flavorless frozen food the way so many restaurants do these days. Prices are reasonable and portions are moderate. Our waitress was very informative and attentive. We did have to wait a little longer than average for our meals but I attributed that to the fact that we were getting a meal that was made up fresh. We will definitely be going back."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "I have a gluten allergy and I couldn't believe how good the good was and how knowledgeable the staff was. I'd recommend this restaraunt anyday"
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Great fresh food! And many options for vegetarians! Salads are great burgers are great! Never had a bad meal!"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "We LOVE the menu @ Joe's because it is NOT average! The meal choices you get to experience are just delicious. Attention to detail is evident on every plate. Of course the bread is amazing, especially with the flavored Olive oil. We enjoyed the balsamic salmon & rosemary skewered scallops the last time we ate there. So yummy! The freshness of the ingredients is wonderful too! Plus the gluten free menu is very extensive which is hard to find. Only thing missing is a better gluten free dessert menu. Need to add some REAL desserts besides the sorbet! WE LOVE JOE's!!!"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "I go to NYA Joe's often because the varied menu offers great selections for people with a wide range of tastes and appetites. The servers really seem to enjoy their jobs and genuinely seemed to believe they are serving quality meals. Prices are reasonable too."

  • "Been there several times and the menu is somewhat limited but everything is good and there are a lot of unique offerings that would satisfy anyone and is enhanced by daily specials. All the food is prepared in a special manner and the presentation is excellent. Service is great and personnel all very personable. I would highly recommend this restaurant but if you go during prime dining hours, be sure to make reservations."
