Pizzeria
Loaded with family traditions, homemade BBQ sauce and a secret family pizza sauce. Owner Joanie Shunia has renovated the space to include a new bar and a bright, welcome interior which house some of the original recipes from the first Village Pizza of Detroit. Flat-screen televisions will fill the dining rooms, four video-gambling machines will occupy one corner, the patio will be open during warm summer months. We offer thin and hand-tossed round pizzas, and the square Sicilian style – similar to the deep-dish Chicago style, but with cheese on top instead of sauce.

We also are famous for our broasted chicken, tasty ribs and fresh and flavorful salads. Come in today and try for yourself!

We usually order the yummy broasted chicken but opted for pizza this time. If you like thin crust crispy crust, this is for you. Love love loved the pizza. Loads of veggies. 👍👍

We were sat right away and friendly attentive wait staff. Pizza was delicious along with salad. Great value for large portions received. Only complaint very noisy. Not good acoustics. My husband and I will definitely return. Only sorry that most of Long Grover’s a ghost town. Very sad

Joanie’s is the best!! Besides the delicious and fresh food (amazing breasted chicken and terrific pizza) Joanie herself makes everyone feel welcomed and important. Her friendly personality is passed on to all, including the very accommodating servers. Joanie’s is our go to place for a great meal, lovely outdoor seating and always pleasant evening.

Joanie’s is a great place to go for lunch or dinner. The broasted chicken dinner is the best that I’ve tasted in a long time, and their portions are plentiful.
I would also recommend the pizza. My friends and family think that Joanie and her manager Brian will go way beyond to make you happy.

From start to finish we enjoyed our dining experience. The hostess who greeted us was warm and friendly. Stephanie, our server was fun with a wonderful personality. We sat outside in a covered patio. The broasted chicken was great along with the potatoes. Looking forward to returning!

The food as always was great. The noise however was just terrible and made it difficult to talk with the people at our table. It was a dinner in silence. There are so many people in such a tight area and then they have music going and TVs it’s just too much.

We arrived about 40 minutes earlier than our OpenTable reservation and we were seated promptly!

Great food, great service! Appetizer, Caesar Salad, and the Broasted Chicken were all delicious!

Our server Tina was great, she checked in on us many times to see if everything was okay... as a matter of fact the owner stopped by to see if we enjoyed everything as well.

The broasted chicken was very similar in taste to Wesley’s broasted chicken back from our Skokie days. We enjoyed our experience and we will be back!!!

Wow! While we’ve taken out their amazing authentic Sicilian pizza (the only real Sicilian I’ve had outside New York City), their Chicken is absolutely amazing. The owner Joanie and her partner personally came to our table to say hi and to make sure everything was right and tasted great. Wait staff is well trained, polite and understands service. More like having a home cooked authentic meal from Mom. Highly recommend and will return with friends.

My husband and I brought my sister and her husband, who drove from West Chicago to taste this pizza that we loved so much! The Sicilian pizza tastes just like my Grandmother from Italy used to make. I can’t recommend this place enough. Fantastic food, and employees are very service oriented. Go there!

Service was excellent. Riley was our server. He had three large parties at one time and he didn't drop the ball one time. Our food was fresh and hot. They made accommodations on a meal for my daughter. We felt welcome and we weren't rushed to leave the restaurant even after we had finished eating. This is a nice family restaurant with outdoor seating in addition to indoor seating.

Joanie's was awesome! The staff was attentive, and the food was delicious. We went to celebrate a couple of birthdays and they even brought out a special birthday treat the whole table could share. We had guests order pizza, pasta and chicken and they raved about everything. Love the setting and the service was outstanding. We'll definitely be going back.
