“First Post Ever, I murk out Happy Joe’s (he’s my man though)” – subtle Cam’ron reference

Happy Joe’s Pizza

8424 109 Street, Edmonton

Happy Joe’s Pizza is one of my favorite bars in the city. I wish I could speak as highly about their pizza.

Once Parkallen Pizza, Happy Joe’s Pizza is one of the many joints slanging ‘za in the Garneau area. Their pizza is classic Garneau fare: thick rubbery cheese, grease-shined crust and mediocre (but very pass-able) taste. I don’t want to get too caught up on their food though, I would much rather focus on Happy Joe’s friendly staff, great drinks and perfect setting.

Happy Joe himself (i am going to assume that’s his name) is very friendly and kind to customers. The only beer on tap is from local brewers Alley Cat which is really refreshing to see.

Importantly, Happy Joe’s is a really quiet and relaxing bar. The main floor has 2 TVs, often set to different stations (which, considering how small it is, is amazing) If you happen to be the only person on the main floor, it is easy to feel right at home. The second floor is more of a dinning room area and is also very comfortable. No music.

Great Place.

ps: Apparently, it is mandatory to have at least one Cam’ron reference per blog…..

  2. Happy Joe is a nice man. He has a good place to chill. I haven’t tried the food yet.

    In other news, I heard that his shop got in a pissing contest with the guys from the cigar shop next door. They are beefing. Ha.

  3. […] with the demand for delivery and to control the intake of pizza-loving riff raff, they opened two satellite locations. Nothing illustrates the restaurant’s pizza personality crisis more than their website (also […]
