We went to celebrate our 35th anniversary expecting it to be packed for Mother's Day. All the Moms must have celebrated early because it wasn't that crowded. As usual the service was extraordinary and in this day and age of nothing but IPA's they continue to keep a brown ale on tap. Kudos. Other than the booths being way too tight for comfort there's nothing to complain about at NYAJ's in Burlington. That's why we're regulars.

Went for Easter lunch. The menu was more geared for dinner with not a huge selection of smaller plates for lunch. That being said, the service was outstanding and the food was very good with large portions. We also discovered that they have a Taco Tuesday with 3 tacos each of either steak, chicken or shrimp or 1 taco of each type for only $6. We will definitely be checking that out soon.

We dined at Not Your Average Joe's with our grand-daughter for dinner on 4-17-2019. She ordered the Simply Grilled Steak Tips with Broccoli, My wife and I had the Mustard Crusted Chicken. We told our server, Melanie, that we were watching our diets and commented that the portions served were so large. She advised us that we could order the luncheon version which was one chicken breast instead of two, which was a good idea because taking the leftovers home just means we'll overeat the next day. We were happy to learn that option. The three of us then shared a Peanut Butter Thing for dessert (in keeping with our diet.

I went with my husband, 2 kids, & a friend to dinner here on Saturday evening. Our table was ready. Despite having a reservation, we were put at a table that was partially squished against a wall.
Service, food, & ambiance was good. However, the server accidentally brought my daughter the wrong dish. This was quickly rectified once I alerted the server to the mistake.

They should re-name this restaurant Much Better than Average Joe's!
This is a friendly, comfortable place with really good food. There are large baskets of FREE focaccia bread with olive and grated cheese. The salads are large and made with very fresh ingredients with many choices of greens and proteins and dressings.
The menu is large with choices from burgers to complete platters and seasonally changing specialties.Their peanut butter thing ice cream pie dessert is served with whipped cream and extra hot fudge and caramel.
The service is always friendly and prompt and I have been coming here for years!

The only thing that I found disappointing was that the one thing that I had gone to the restaurant for, they had run out of (and I was there before 5:30pm). They did, however, accommodate me with something similar which was very good. It was a good experience, as usual.

Ordered a burger and told they were making new fries and would bring the fries out. Fries never came and I Had to ask for them when I was boxing the other half of my burger. No apology just put in a takeout box and put on the table.
