Joe Squared

As you might imagine, a visit to Joe Squared in the Station North Arts and Entertainment district will guarantee some great thin crust square pizza, but you may not expect the full menu, extensive rum selection and fabulous music that will accompany your pizza. Yesterday evening after building up our appetite with an excellent run around Druid Hill Park, (which is a place that should have been on our list- it is a nice hidden spot in the city) Michelle and I dined outside at the busy North Avenue pizza joint.

Joe’s has a funky art-school, eclectic vibe which adds to the laid back atmosphere. Inside, a surprisingly large dining and stage area opens up to a nice outdoor patio. With sliding glass doors that open to the “stage,” sitting outside was a great place to enjoy the weather while listening to the nightly live music. Joe’s has an acoustic dinner guitar player and then a live late night band most nights starting at 10pm.

The menu offers every type of pizza imaginable, from the strange (an irish pizza with garlic sauce, corned beef, potatoes, carmelized onions and cheese) to the traditional. We tried the flag pizza which was split into thirds with a variety of sauces and cheeses. In addition to pizza, Joe’s offers a variety of starters (wings, fried zucchini, calamari, potato skins, etc.), sandwiches, pastas, risotto and salads. After smelling the wings that the surrounding tables had we had to get our buffalo sauce fix. We tried the Buffalo Chicken Salad, which is not the healthiest salad on the menu, but it sure was delicious!

Be sure to check out Joe’s, it is a great place to spend a summer evening!
