Not Your Average Joe's Methuen
Not Your Average Joe's Methuen is located in The Loop shopping center in Methuen, MA, just off the 495 Loop Connector near the Merrimack River. We are the perfect dinner and a movie destination, with the AMC Methuen 20 next door. We are also a short drive to the Lawrence Municipal Airport, Bill Flynn's Far Corner Golf, and the always fun LaserCraze. Our nearest hotel accommodation is the Days Hotel & Conference Center - Methuen MA.
We had a good meal. Prices are reasonable. Service was good.
Excellent service and food came out super fast despite being dinner rush. Our server was excellent food was great as usual.
small portions, slow service, bland food. second visit, same experience.
Managed our large reservation with ease, no screw ups and very efficient pre-movie dinner spot.
Tips and rice cooked right but bland
Broccoli under cooked
Best bread in town
Great food and excellent service
We would have been more comfortable at a larger table for the 12 of us but our waitress Sarah was wonderful, attentive & very pleasant. We were celebrating 3 birthdays so it was nice getting candles in the desserts. Fun time with great friends!!
Great service good dinner
Food was good as usual. Like the menu and continually return.
For a chain, not bad. Food was good as was service. Basically same food you see at other chains, just a spoof on names of dishes and the way its prepared. Pay attention to descriptions.
All food is made to order so it's very easy to make changes based on personal preferences. They also offer gluten-free menu. They have a decent selection of beers and some interesting cocktails.
Meat was over cooked and tough, not the usual quality. But we were left alone to talk, which always appreciated.
Our server was attentive and entertaining. We always get a good meal at NYAJ's at this one was no exception. I reserved a table for 3 on Opentable at 4PM Friday afternoon and got a 6:30 seating, which can be hard to find at that time slot. The restaurant was full, but we were seated immediately upon arrival. Outstanding. Thanks.
Food was very good and so was the waitstaff. We enjoy Joe's cuisine and continually return.
Love the Menu and the creative ways the food is prepared. Good go to place!
Their coconut shrimp appetizer with the orange sauce is the BEST! Hope they never take it off the menu. Our waiter was very attentive, noticing that the dressing on my salad was low, so he offered to get more for me- nice!
We were stuck in the corner table and there were flies stuck to the walls. All black flies. Our waitress was nice. Portions were very small for what we paid. I would probably not go back again.
Been to Joes many times....but past few times food was terrible. I got a burger that had no flavor and my boyfriend got a personal pizza that couldn’t be picked up by hand it was so soggy. Drinks where great but definitely not the food.
We are familiar and frequent customers at NYAJ in Va so were happy to find one in MA after a disappointing dinner in Andover the night before. Loved your NYAJ decor and ambiance- so different from ours but very cool. Got seated immediately w/ open table reservation but then sat for almost 10 min at table before anyone came to get our drink orders. Katie, who was obviously very busy, apologized profusely and took our drink, app, and dinner order. Wine, bread, and apps were great but dinner was nowhere to be found. After several times telling us that it should be out any minute, after 2-3 times telling us that, she went and found our dinner. As she brought it to us, apologized again, mentioned something about the ticket getting lost, and served us. Although the plates were scalding hot, prob from sitting under the lamps "lost" for so long, my son's beef tips/mashed pot's etc were very cold but this time was a small fail. :(
Always enjoy the food. Service was good. Will return.
I order chicken parmigiana my wife ordered crusted mustard chicken which they switched the chickens on each dish let just say mustard crusted chicken and marinara sauce and cheese does not go together to well the server was very Apologetic but the manager couldn’t even be bothered to even come to the table very dissatisfied won’t be returning here any time soon
Started with dirty dishes and a drink served in a broken glass. Lack of communication with hot plates and cold food. Uncaring waitstaff, bad tasting meatloaf and dry chicken. First and last time I will go there.
Sandwiches were very small, especially at that price.
Food was ok. Small portions. Had chicken piccata. Was not worth the price.
We go every month for book club and it’s always good. Even though you aren’t able to request specific tables on this app. they seemed to know our preferences. This time we had a waiter (John) we’v had in the past & he was wonderful! He was attentive and remembered how we liked certain things. We told him we’d see him next month.
I've tried to like this place because it's so close to my house but this was the last time I will go there. Whether it's the vegetarian burger, buffalo chicken pizza, gluten free bread or salad I have never had good food from there other than the oil and cheese you get before the meal. High calorie bad quality food
Food and service were good. However, when I looked at the bill and saw they charged me $4.75 for a bottle of root beer I was very surprised. A glass of diet coke was $3.25. Both seemed too high given that you could buy 3 liters of diet coke for that price and at least a 6 pack or two for the price of the root beer. I understand businesses need to make a profit, but this seems a bit price gauging.
Joe's is consistently good. Liked the seasonal lobster pasta dish. Always return because we like the food. Would recommend.
Always reliable. But always go back for Kayla and Tim.
We’re semi regulars here as it’s next to the movie theater. Usually good, but on this night we had 2 servers behind the bar that were more focused on their personal conversation than on taking care of customers. We also noticed a bottle of mixer that had all this congealed material stuck around the bottle opening, like it was a lava eruption- gross, and it makes one wonder what’s going on that we can’t see. Seems like a lack of management oversight.
Everything was awesome. The food and our waiter were great
Booked table ahead, still were seated at bar, cramped area. The boot we were seated was very tight. Table was set up, but was not properly cleaned (food morsel, grease). We asked to move to a table, that was more spacious, cleaned, but table was sticky. Food tasted great ( burger and salmon dish). There was a small bone in my salmon. Waitress attentive, apologized, but that's it.
Methuen NAJ. Is very good.
Dirty knife, then dirty plate,finally pizza was burnt.
Dinner was very good except we both ordered Herbed Haddock. One of the pieces of Haddock on one of the plates was a significantly smaller portion than the other.
It was rather obvious and inconsistent in plating .
I am a big fan of Not your Average Joe's. The food and service area always excellent. I tried the new Shrimp Scampi and it was fantastic. It was fresh and delicious and not too oily. It was an excellent dinner out for a reasonable price. I will be back, again and again.
Had a great meal, the service by Ernesto was unbelievable..he was very courteous and was very attentive. Best service I have ever had at Not Your Average Joes..will definitely be back.
It was great! Our waitress was wonderful. The only complaint we had was that the AC vent was right above us and it was cold! I had to keep my jacket on.
Our server Sara was fantastic. We had a great meal and even better service!
My meal was mediocre and my rice was dry like it had been sitting all day. The kids even left hungry after their “meals”
