 Joe’s Place in Louisa, Virginia, is one of those hole-in-the-wall restaurants that people are always afraid to try but end up at the top of their list of favorite restaurants. Joe’s, as the locals call it, is an Italian restaurant located on East Main Street that is known as the place for the cheapest and best pizza around. At first glance, the restaurant might look more like an old, closed down ice cream shop with its tall, triangular turquoise roof. However, as you pass by on any given evening, you will quickly realize that Joe’s is opened for business and that the aroma drifting out of the tiny restaurant is that of simmering marinara and freshly baked pizza crust, not that of ice cream.

Joe’s  serves everything from the cheesiest, mouth-watering pizza to the most flavorful, perfectly toasted Italian sub. Many customers also love to order the cheeseburgers piled with fresh toppings such as tomatoes and crispy lettuce; the perfectly golden-brown side of french fries cannot be forgotten. Not only does Joe’s Place have the greatest pizza, subs, burgers, and Italian dishes around, it also has the best prices. A cheeseburger can be bought for $3 while a large pizza starts at only $10. Subs and sandwiches are affordable, ranging from $4.25 to $6.20.

Since this is a family-owned restaurant, the two waitresses are sure to cater to their customers’ every need and always engage in conversation. On a regular basis, one of the waitresses, who is the owner’s daughter, sits down with her customers and carries on a conversation with them.

If you and your family are ever looking for a small hometown restaurant with amazing food at reasonable prices, then head on down the road to 407 East Main Street in Louisa County. Joe’s will be happy to serve you and will surely have an item on the menu for every member of your family. Your wallet will be just as full and happy as you when you walk out of Joe’s Place.
