A word from Not Your Average Joe's Woodbridge
Why would a restaurant born and raised in Massachusetts open a location in Woodbridge, Virginia? Doesn’t seem like a path the average restaurant would be expected to take. But then, we’re not the average restaurant — something you might have guessed from our name. Now to answer the question. We chose Woodbridge because it’s a thriving community in a beautiful part of the country. Leesburg and Gaithersburg — the other two communities we’ve settled into outside of our native Massachusetts — both welcomed us warmly, so we think we’ll be at home in Woodbridge too. there are five breweries, three wineries and numerous farmer’s markets within a 20-mile radius of our soon-to-be home in Stonebridge at Potomac Town Center. That means we’ll have plenty to satisfy our preference for locally sourced ingredients. Our chef takes a creative approach to made-from-scratch food, where everything is prepared to order (aka, your way), where service is over the top and prices are not. That’s us.Continued

  • "Came here for a birthday dinner for a friend; the service and food were excellent, and they did very well dealing with our large group in a speedy manner."

  • "We have eaten here twice and both times everything has been fabulous. Wide variety of choices, great service, and freshly prepared food at reasonable prices."

  • "Not Your Average Joe's in Woodbridge offers a consistently "GRAND" experience! The food is fabulous - always fresh and with monthly menu specials - you never get bored. My husband and I go every week. You can make a meal on the fabulous bread and oil combo they offer - it's addictive! My husband loves their steak tips and I love the fresh salads and seafood and I love the fact that the kitchen staff is always flexible and accommodating to special requests or "tweaks" to menu selections for personal needs/tastes. The wait staff is superior - ensuring you of a wonderful experience time after time!"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "The food was great and the waitress was polite, but we were there for 2 hours. That's a long dinning experience for a small group. Quicker service would flip the table faster, creating more cash flow for the restaurant. I felt bad watching people wait a long time for a table while we waited a long time for service."

  • "The menu was offered good selections without being overwhelming. The food was excellent and presentation was great. The service was absolutely wonderful and is reason enough to go back."

  • "The food is fantastic and the Service is outstanding. Damir, our server was cordial and prompt with everything. He also went out of his way to make sure that a couple of our group that had food tolerance issues were taken care of."
    Dined on 4/9/2014
  • "This restaurant is great. We love it for lunch or dinner. Since it is a scratch kitchen, the chef is always willing to modify our order due to dietary constraints. This time, the manager stopped by and gave us a lot of updates regarding the new "healthy" offerings that will be added to the menu and other options we can ask for. What other place does that!!!"
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "The restaurant offered nicely prepared tasty food using fresh ingredients. We were surprised by the diversity of the menu options. Prices were quite reasonable for the quality of the food presented. The only downside of the meal was the house salad served with a strange-tasting house dressing."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Not Your Average Joe's is truly not your average joe! The food is great and the chef does a great job modifying my order due to diet restrictions. We go there a lot! If I had to pick one thing to change, it would be to train the servers to be more cognizant of drink refills. This is a common theme. Unless I have one of my two favorite servers (Kiera or Michael), I always have to ask for a refill! Not sure what the deal is with that."

  • "I've never been disappointed when dining here. Service, food ambiance are all always great."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Something different and enjoyable. Typical to be louder on a weekend night as are most of the places we go to. Would like to go back to try some more things on the menu. Great Place. See u again soon."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "NYAJ's delivers consistently good food and outstanding service. The excellent staff and energetic managers make this particular location special. Their ability to keep the menu fresh and updated exposes customers to new dishes every month. Drink and weekday happy hour specials also a big plus. You don't feel like you're in a chain restaurant. Well done!"

  • "We had a very nice dinner with a bottle of wine and the service was great."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Not Your Average Joe's was amazing! The food was delicious. They give you this warm and soft bread with this delicious spicy butter remoulade! We ordered Buffalo tenders appetizer, which was great and good for sharing. As an entree, I had the Harvest Mac n Cheese which was incredible. I will certainly be going back when I visit home again!"
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "Joe's was half way for each of us so perfect spot...easy to get to from I-95 and the town center atmosphere was good. Very attentive wait staff; nice atmosphere. Next time I'm in Woodbridge I would go back."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "I really appreciate your willingness / ability to make individual accommodations to customers' needs. Personally, I can NOT eat hot / spicey foods, containing anything like cayenne pepper, red hot pepper flakes, jalapeno peppers, etc. So it's very important that I can request NO hot spices / flavors in anything I eat. And, unfortunately, too many recipes now operate under the premise that everything needs a pinch of cayenne, or a few pepper flakes sprinkled on top. THX for your flexibility!!!"

  • "We gambled on something new and won big! Very good already been back and recommended to Family and Friends!"
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "Tried NYAJ's for the first time this past Saturday. We had a reservation, so the wait wasn't too bad--heard others waiting without a reservation for close to an hour. Would not recommend going on a busy weekend--not sure the wait would be worth it. There seemed to be some chaos with all the crowd--we had to wait for a bit to be served drinks & bread. The food was good, but not too much there. The manager didn't stop by to ask how things were. I would give this place a chance to 'mature' before visiting any time soon."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "The waitress was very helpful in selecting entrees and the food was delicious. It was especially staisfying because some of the selections are not what many would consider "mainstream" food choices but turned out to be very good."
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "Restaurant is very new and has a modern look. Nothing on the menu was exceptional after dining three times here. However, the staff is friendly and helpful when needed (adding chairs, special order etc). Overall, a good experience and good for happy hour groups."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Truly not your average chain. The dipping sauce for the bread is excellent. The food is wholesome and plenty of choices. The wait staff was very friendly and the service was good."

    Dined on 3/4/2014
  • "Great food, friendly staff, a great lunch spot. Huge portions, enough to share. Server went the extra mile to get me the Cranberry Teriyaki sauge recipe for me."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Our first visit to this restaurant was in June, 2013. Less than a month went by and we were there again. Good food and service. The Woodbridge town center is a great setting for dining and shopping. The staff was professional and accommodating."

  • "We celebrated our daughter's Sweet 16! The food was great and our server Melissa was awesome!"
    Dined on 2/24/2014
  • "This was our first time to Not Your Average Joe's, and it truly lives up to its name. The menu has some standard favorites, but also provides a lot of original thinking and much to choose from. The wine list and prices were a delight. The service was friendly and attentive. We were there on a Saturday night and the place was hopping, yet we had ever need fulfilled. Definitely five stars all the way."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "We went to celebrate my companions birthday. Was difficult to find since we don't live nearby. Finally located the restaurnat and glad we did. Well worth our visit. Food was quite good and filling. Ordered the flatbread pizza as an appetizer. More than adequate. Was winesday so most wines were half price so we splurged on a nice bottle. The balsalmic salmon was delicious but the bed of asparagus should have been cooked more. Her hanger steak was done just the way she likes. The frites were very tasty. The only downside to the meal was the "survey". Waitress brought an ipad (?) to the table while we were still eating and asked us to complete the survey. My ipad died and my companions ipad died while she was attempting to complete the survey."

  • "We love NYAJ - the food is amazing and fresh with excellent prices. My boyfriend visits from NYC, and this is our top spot in the area for a reliably delicious meal."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "It's always been a great experience when we go. I was skeptical about going on Valentines being so busy but we made reservations and got seated quickly and our food fast, hot and yummy. Good choices for the "specials" We've eaten her many times and we've never had a bad meal or bad service. I can't wait for the warmer weather so your outdoor seating is back up and running."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We are foodies and really enjoy eating out. Not Your Average Joe's is simply delicious! Their food is so fresh and they are very consistent. We have been a dozen times and it is always good - every single time. The kids love it too. It's become our favorite restaurant."
    Dined on 2/17/2014
  • "Loved the delicious Med. Turkey Kabobs-turkey so tender and overall tasty dish. Also loved the pizza, the fresh tasting ingredients and the yummy thin crust. We skipped dessert (too full) but was looking forward to the Lavazza coffee. Was disappointed that you did not serve decaf espresso and that the decaf coffee was definitely just average at best."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "First off, make a reservation. We went during Valentine's Day weekend, and if we didn't have a reservation, it would have been an hour and a half wait. In fact, we were in the parking lot and the receptionist called us to confirm we were still coming before giving up our reservation. The food selection is quite varied, with interesting sides. The lamb chops were cooked to our desire and the peanut butter thing was crazy good. Our waitress, Ginny, was great -- she made wonderful recommendations and was honest to say if she hadn't tried a dish. Every time she walked by, she checked on us, very attentive. Overall, a great experience on a very busy evening."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "This was our first time to NYAJ, and we had a great time. The food was great and our server was outstanding. She kept up on our drinks, and made sure we had everything we needed, all of this during a dinner rush on Valetines Day. We will definitely be going back in the near future."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The menu had a variety of food. Good pricing for good food. Great, caring service."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "I live near the Potomac Center, and have come to find Joe's as one of the best places to eat. The waitstaff is very friendly, and I have yet to have a bad meal. Joe's makes their bones on pure ingredients, so I doubt I will ever have a bad meal. They have really great "seasonal" specials, but you can really call them monthly specials. The Olympic themed menu has some great options, and the Valentine's Day Frisky Whisky was really good. My wife and I went this time with two other couples who have never been to Joe's and they loved it. We will most certainly be back, and back often."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "NYAJ always has a fresh interesting variety of foods. New menu's seasonally. Great Happy Hour deals. Outdoor seating available when weather permits. We always have good service here!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I have been to this restaurant several time and the food was great. Their Valentines day menu lacked luster and choice. I fell in love with their brussell sprouts and was told they could go to Wegemans to fix some. I declined this but was disappointed they did not have the N.Y Steak Strip in which they had sent me a e-mail advertising. The service was excellent, which made up for the lack luster food. It will be a long time before I go back. The menu must change. The kept the harvest mac-n-cheese from a special menu, but this was and mistake. This dish is awful, I have had better. They tend to get rid of the good dishes. I ordered the crab cake sandwich and it was very tiny and lacked good crab meat."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Not Your Average Joe's is exactly that... The food is always delicious, cooked just the way you like it, more than enough, and the chef has always been more than accommodating to our requests. We love it!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "The food was not as great as I thought it would be however, it was ok. The service was outstanding and the staff was very polite. I would go there again but would just try a different entrée."
