Best Breadsticks and Meatball Pizza

Cant make a trip to Lexington without a trip to Joe B's.

They have the best meatball pizza EVER! Their breadsticks are well known and highly recommended.

Great people take good care of you. Ask for Richard, he is the best!!

Highly Regarded

Most people obsess over Joe Bologna's. We had it and it definitely was really good but I would still rather order from someplace else. Don't hesitate to go though! :)

Pizza for the ages

Now that my daughter is a student at UK I have a good reason to return to an old favorite. As good, if not better, than it was twenty years ago Joe B's is hands down the best pizza in Lexington. There is no place better before a sporting event at Rupp. The other entrees more than carry their own.

User review by mojorisen

This restaurant is living off of its reputation it received in the early '70's when its pizza was much better and a whole lot thicker. Joe B's pizza today is just a shadow of its former self and would not win many blind taste tests with the national pizza chains. This is in no way the best pizza in Lexington!

A Lexington Lexicon

Joe Bologna's is probably the best pizza in town. However, their pizza is so good, one often forgets their other great dishes. Try a salad, some lazagna, or one of their great grinders as well. They've been around for ages, and with good reason.

Great Food

This is the best pizza place in Lexington. They do a lot of good Italian as well. Great place for either lunch or dinner. They have individual sized pizza's at dinner and special lunch pizza's as well. The breadsticks are very good -- order the breadstick with the marinara sauce (skip the butter sauce). The only possible problem is that sometimes it is a little loud -- generally I don't find this to be a problem though. At peak times it is very busy and there might be a wait.

Good Food, Good Times

Quick service when you get in. Crowd dictates wait after that. Great environment with TV's and a bar. Pizzas are excellent. They do carry-out too!

Joe B's is world famous for its pizza; I have brought several of my friends from all over to eat there. The rest of the menu is great also. The staff seems to enjoy working there and now it's completely smoke-free (a gamble in a tobacco state). The current location is interesting in that the building had been a church and a synagogue in the past. I think the wide-screen TV is near where the Torah had been.
