I’m shocked by how small the portions are considering the prices...

We always love eating here because our three-year-old can be as loud or as soft as they want and it's perfect music level to hide it!

It was just okay. We like the Nashua location 100 times better. We were seated way in the back. Our waitress forgot about us for well over 20 minutes. The bread was cold, waitress was aloof and the food was just okay. We will drive linger to go to Nashua in the future.

Dinner at Not Your Average Joe's in Burlington on New Year's Eve was quite enjoyable. Reservation was for 6:30 p.m. and we were seated immediately upon arrival. Menu was varied with a few new choices from past visits. Good service and reasonable prices.

Wrong order came out. Then waited another 20 min. for correct order to be prepared. When it was finally brought to the table, the steak was not cooked correctly (raw), was tough and tasteless. I had to turn it back and requested a simple haddock dinner which took another 20 min., but was good. Of course my friend, who was with me, had long finished and was just sitting there while waiting for two meals to cook and finally watched me eat my haddock. I kept my potatoes and vegetable from my returned steak, so I could have something to eat! I was hungry, when I came in, but waiting for two meals to be prepared was more than I could tolerate.

Very dissatisfying meal and evening! My meal was compensated by management, but whole experience was so bad, I shall not return or recommend Joe’s anytime soon!

We had a large party come to the restaurant. Everyone was promptly served, the food was good and the ambiance perfect for carrying on conversation. I had the Korean Salmon Salad which was excellent.

Joe's is always dependable for a good dinner. We requested a booth because we had a toddler with us. That worked out perfectly. We had a 5:30 reservation and weren't the only group with a small child. Service was quick which is key with little kid. When in double, go to NYA Joe's.

Great as always. Cheese steak eggrolls, jambalaya, and salmon are always fantastic. And the roasted brussel sprouts are great as well. Never a bad experience at the Burlington Not Your Average Joe's.

Most everything was fine but my bf’s French fries came out so overcooked they were beyond crunchy. Told the waiter to no avail, told manager on our way out. He offered him fresh fries but we were leaving. We said we wanted to make sure this didn’t happen to others. He never offered anything, not to comp him for the meal or even a gift certificate to bring us back.

Everything was great. The only tiny issue was I didn't have a spoon to eat my sorbet. It was still delicious!

The Burlington location is a good meeting place for us from the North Shore with family from Framingham. We had exceptional service from Brian - he even recognized us from a prior visit! We were also greeted by the Manager (Claudine?) as she had been a server for us a few years ago and made a point to stop and say hello even though she was leaving at the end of a long day of work at the restaurant. Everyone's meals were perfect and we genuinely appreciate the warm feeling of recognition though we only visit 1 or 2 times a year.

Pretty much a regular here, service normally very good, but today our waitress today was not on the ball, very slow to notice when we were trying to hail her, which we needed to do because she forgot to bring bread, for example, or come to take our order after we'd needed more time.

I'm a NYAJ fan. The food is good and a good value. We went on Tuesday for 1/2 priced burgers and, it was very crowded. Service could have been better. In all fairness, they seemed to be understaffed, which is a problem for many restaurants these days. To his credit, the manager was doing his best to back up the wait staff.

This is a great place to go to on a regular basis .
Very attentive and friendly staff . The menu is great but new exciting dishes are always being added ( we love the new hummus dips with the bread ) .
Highly recommended if you like consistency & value every time you dine with them .

Don’t know why I keep coming back here. The food is pretty good but way too expensive for what you’re getting. If I hadn’t had a coupon I would’ve spent $40 to lunch dishes. Too much money for what we had.
