Fantastic meal, one of the best restaurants in Burlington.

Great service, fresh food, healthy options and comfort food, well made drinks and a good wine/beer list, and great ahi tuna dishes!

Try the steak and cheese eggrolls and the Tuna Poke Bowl!

I went here for lunch with my girl friends and we had a great experience. For starters, the fall drinks were so delicious. Every meal we got was wonderful, specifically the Caribbean buffalo tenders. Our server was so sweet and never made us feel like we needed to leave or feel like she didn't care about us. I will absolutely be visiting many. more times!

The new menu is not something I would come to NYA. They have stopped haddock, spaghetti squash, and more.

Drink size, if it hasn't gotten smaller, is not a good value.

We have been to the Burlington Joes several times over the last 10-15 yrs because we always stay at the Hyatt House and I was disappointed last night that the meatloaf was gone. Has always been a favorite of ours.

We had no server. So the manager comes over and says that she will help out until the waitress becomes available. The waitress becomes available and comes over and says that she’s there to help but does not ask if we need anything. We left a very small tip since they made us feel without a server

Our local Not Your Average Joe's closed and we have been missing it so much. The warm and comforting food and the lovely staff but last night we went to the next closest location and two of our beloved staff members from Arlington were there (I heard there are 4 who were relocated to Burlington from Arlington). Janette and Kuldip were so sweet to us! The menu continues to be great for us - especially the care about allergies and the healthy and delicious options. It was a pleasure to be back at NYAJs!

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
