Really nice people, really good food. I just wish it wasn't order at the counter type of place. Please also put your hair up when working in a restaurant rather than deliver food with your hair hanging into the food, gross....

A friend referred me here after he got tired of me complaining about how there's no decent pizza in Minnesota. I'm an East Coast boy and never find anything as good as New York pizza. I mean, what's with the square slices??!! This is as close as it gets. Huge slices. Just the right amount of topping. I drive from... More

Joey Novas has a reputation for being the best pizza in this end of town. Super family friendly (ask the pizza makers for some "play" dough). Food is excellent, fresh ingredients. My wife loves the gluten free options. Sure to please.

The pizza is "ok" but not worth the price! We have had delivery pizza that has better taste and cheaper!

The pizza was OK, hot thats for sure, took a little longer than usual. But it was average nothing that made it stand out, pricey as well 23.95 for a large pizza. Glad I had a coupon. Will not go back but worth a try.

When I first walked into this strip-mall pizza place, I had no preconceptions about what to expect. What I discovered was truly delicious pizza! The service was simple but friendly. The wine selection could use some improvement but the food was great. Recommended!

We recently have adjusted our diet to be gluten free. How awesome to find a gluten free pizza on the menu. And it is delicious! Ok - the crust is not so enticing but the ingredients on top make up for it.

Get the "Drag it thru the Gardern" veggie pizza with red sauce and chicken. Our family favorite and fabulous fresh and healthy toppings. Also the BBQ Chicken pizza is top notch. Kids love it too.

We eat at JN all the time but this was our first time getting delivery. Pizza arrived hot and professionally. We tried the bruschetta pizza and it was delicious! Then got a normal meat pizza which was also yummy.
