A perfect night out at the best restaurant in Burlington! Steak and cheese egg rolls and mustard crusted chicken BLT are both fantastic. Great management and staff work as a team to provide a great guest experience.

Best restaurant experience in Burlington without a doubt. Great staff, caring management, fantastic and healthy food options, great drinks, and best value in town.

I come here on an almost weekly basis and love this restaurant like my grandmother's kitchen. If you have not been here do yourself a favor and get yourself there ASAP! Keep up the great work NYAJ!

This chain was our “go to” for years and years. You could count on a good meal, good value, good service. It had menu options for all tastes and palettes. We haven’t been out much since Corona Virus and our last 2 times here were terrible. The food was not good, the prices were up, the portions were smaller and the service (the only thing I asked that was particular was my dressing on the side of my poke bowl) terrible. The waitress was attentive enough but they loaded my poke bowl with dressing. My husband’s sandwich was awful. This was last night and still now neither of us feels well. This is sad as this place was always one of our favorites.

Hadn't been in Joe's in quite a while, but the menu was the same as ever. Lots to choose from and the couple with us were enthusiastic as well. (Their first time to NYAJ's.) The service was excellent. We hadn't seen are friends in quite a while and had lots to catch up on. Our server knew when to wait and when to take are orders. Overall a most excellent lunch.

Ww took our 14 year old son out to dinner to have a nice dinner alone with his parents and received the same tasty and reasonably priced food that we did before COVID. Had the vodka pasta with shrimp, Waldorf salad,, cheese pizza,, and key lime pie(extra delicious) and ice cream Sunday. Very pleased with the service, desserts, drinks, etc... as well. Reasonable noise level as well allowed a nice discussion with our son. Pleasurable experience all around. We will be back for sure.

Fantastic as always, best restaurant in Burlington hands-down.

They have such a varied menu, but with healthier versions if favorites from bolognese to tex mex items. Share an order of the steak and cheese egg rolls, and get the chicken parm with a big glass of Banfi Super Tuscan and you will not be disappointed. Keep up the great work!

My wife and I come here almost weekly and are never disappointed. Service, food, cleanliness, price point, and ambiance are all top notch.

Steak and cheese egg rolls, mustard chicken, and the ahi poke bowl are all great menu items. Their wine list is also well thought out, and pairs well with their food offerings.

The value here is so much greater that any other restaurant in burlington. There are so many overpriced places in Burlington, who charge a premium price but cannot execute premium service. NYAJ does, but without the premium price point. This is the best restaurant in Burlington, hands down.

We’ve dined at NYAJ’s many times and we use Open Table to make our reservations this particular time they said they didn’t have our reservations and I showed the front desk staff and manager the confirmation email. They seated us right away but never really apologized just a sort of oh well

Waited almost 10 minutes for a server to approach out table. Many apologies but the restaurant was not that busy so not sure about that. Appetizer was good, ordered a salad, chicken Caesar and had five small pieces of chicken on it, for $15 it seemed way over priced. Just my opinion when compared to salads from some other places

We were celebrating the last day of school and ordered a lot of stuff. Our server could not have been nicer. She was so accommodating and kind. She made our night. The front desk staff was also awesome, accommodating our request to be outside since the kids aren't fully vaxed yet. We come for the service for sure. I only wish I remembered the name of our server to make sure she gets recognized. We sooooooooo miss the Arlington location (where we live) but given how great this was, we're likely to hike up to Burlington again in the future.

First time going to a Not Your Average Joe's since the shutdown. We have missed it, especially the one in Arlington, which sadly has closed. But our Burlington experience was very nice, the food delicious as always, the garlic bread something we all were excited to see again, and the waitress was excellent!

The experience was good in that the staff was very nice and attentive. However, the food was unfortunately not (maybe I made a bad choice, but it was one of their "what we are known for" dishes).
I had a great experience at another location on all counts - food, staff and overall experience - so I will try again. If this had been my only experience, I would not have considered going back, on account of the food.

We were do excited to see they had reopened here in Burlington, and the food, service, and drinks are just as good if not even better than they were pre-pandemic. We had the steak and cheese egg rolls, chicken parm, and impossible bolognese and enjoyed every bit of it. Looking forward to visiting again next week!

Recommended for family or quiet dinner. Casual. Food quality across all apps and meals we ordered was excellent. Service was very good - waitress was awesome, would be excellent if manager came by to say hi. We had chicken dumplings, wings, salmon entree, butternut squash ravioli, pizza, chicken fingers, lobster bisque. Price was moderate. I would definitely return.

We ate lunch outside in the tent. The noise from the parking was very minimal. The heat was very adequate as it was a chilly day. The food and service was excellent as usual.
