We do not live in MA but every time we come into the Boston area, we make Average Joes a priority. Their bread is the best around. I had their Caribbean spicy chicken tenders with blue cheese and they were amazing. My husband got the smoked salmon benedict and that was good as well.

It was a loud night due to the football game being on and lots of families with young children nearby. We still had a great time; just difficult to hear each other at times! Great food and our waiter was helpful and attentive.

Went with a group of 7 coworkers for lunch before the holidays. Not Your Average Joe's in Watertown accommodates large groups with varying diets/food preferences. There was enough room at the table and plenty of food options for people to choose from. The service was friendly and timely. The wait staff was understanding when we were waiting for a member of our group to arrive after he got held up at the office.

This restaurant is fairly vegetarian friendly- there are plenty of options beyond a salad and many options that you can order a veggie version of.

Food preparation did not live up the interesting-sounding menu items.
