Not Your Average Joe's Woodbridge
NYAJ’s is our favorite local restaurant because the food options are varied and always excellent. On this occasion, we brought visiting guests knowing they would have a great dining experience. Part of that experience is the superb staff that works there. Manager Carla met us as we entered the restaurant and she was regularly out in the dining area assuring top notch service. We also had our favorite server, Missy, who is always terrific. Being regulars, we know that all their servers are excellent.
The mustard crusted chicken and the salmon were big hits with our group. We can’t wait for our next visit!
Excellent service and the buffet offerred a large variety of choices. Very impressed as brunch buffet's are a rarity in the area.
First time dining here. Not too loud for conversation, good menus, good food, good service and we weren’t rushed out, so we stayed til 10. We’ll be back!
Excellent food and service. New menu items are available.
We were given a warm & friendly greeting when we arrived. Nice greeter & waiter. The bread & dip are the stand-outs here! But we also enjoyed our Cobb salads & iced tea. The waiter re-filled our glasses often. Good to have this reliable, casual restaurant in Woodbridge.
Good, but waiter wasn’t as on top of things as we usually experience there.
We were very disappointed. We made a reservation and they didn't honor it when we arrived there minutes late. Instead they put on their wait-list quoted us 35-40 minutes then never called us back. We left and have no plans to ever try again.
Always a good experience. Started coming when we were dating and just got married. One of our favorite places
I love going to NYAJ and eat there maybe monthly. Everything was delicious. I ordered the sirloin tips with spinach and mashed potatoes. I ordered it medium rare, but the meat was a bit on the fatty side and too chewy for me. I didn't complain or say anything; I ate maybe half of the meat but ate everything else. I did enjoy it, and I love the new hummus and olive tampenade.
See you again soon!
Service and food were great as always! Really like the specialty drinks. New menu item - teriyaki chicken and butternut squash cannoli. Very good but really filling. Easily two meals.
A local favorite—we eat here every week.
They have great food with many options available for every palate. The atmosphere is bright and cheery and the service is always awesome!
We have an office in Woodbridge, VA and this is our go to restaurant when we’re in town. We use it for our business meetings and when taking our staff out to lunch or dinner. On my most recent trip I took a vendor there for lunch and returned that night with our CFO.
Great menu, great drinks, great for groups large and small. They will accommodate larger groups both inside and outside in their covered patio area. I can’t say enough great things about this restaurant.
Awesome scallops! Fantastic server.
Food and service were simply excellent!
Great food, great service, pleasant atmosphere. We eat here weekly and are never disappointed.
We’ve been coming here every week for the past 2 months. We have never been disappointed. The food is amazing!!
The waiter was excellent. He quickly realized we did not want to eat and run, but enjoy drinks before dinner, and chat. Food came out promoptly. Food was good. We were surprised by the nachos. Not like any we had seen before. Interesting, but probably won't order again. The flatbreads were wonderful. The staff is friendly and seem to work as a team, helping each other when needed. The break served before the meal is GREAT.
Server was extra patient with our big party. We had a great time!
We have had some good meals here at NYAJs but also have been disappointed.
We've dined at Not Your Average Joe's several times and enjoy the food very much. Love the bread and olive oil mix they bring to the table right away. We are always escorted to a table that is in an area behind a type of barrier. I don't like to sit back there so will ask to sit in the main area next time. I like to watch the games on the big screens and you cannot see them from that back area. Otherwise, perfect dining experience.
Great food and superior service (thanks Missy). We invited some old friends we had not seen in a long time and enjoyed a leisurely 2.5 hour lunch. Salads were very popular and very good. A great time was had by all.
Oktoberfest foods to try out!!
Just came in got happy hour. It's always a pleasure. This was the first time to try the gluten free chicken quesadilla, it was DELICIOUS!
The food was good and the noise level did not impede conversation. However it was not too crowded so it might be a problem on a Friday or Saturday evening
Our server was very professional and helpful. Excellent service by the young lad. The date was made special with a free dessert as well. Thank you very much for a wonderful time.
The quality and variety of the food was far better than we expected. But don't waste your time on the Bloody Mary (worst I have ever had!) Bloody Mary had no flavor except the pile of pepper at the bottom, although the presentation was beautiful. The Bagel Everything Flatbread, deviled eggs and Huervous Rancheros was delicious! We will be back.
Anthony Gall was an excellent server! Very friendly, knowledgeable about the menu and attentive to the details!!
NYAJ's is a local favorite and we dine there almost every week. The food, the staff and the ambiance are all excellent. Of course we have our favorite servers who treat us like family but on this occasion none of them were working but now we have a new server to add to our small list of favorites--John--he took exceptional care of us.
It was just fine. We all felt the quality of the food was mediocre. I had to send back my burger over temp and then felt I had to debate manager over the Rare vs Med Rare.
We have been supporters of NYAJ's since opening...when we arrived, they had the last minutes of a buffet ongoing and only a small portion of the regular menu was available and the buffet had no gluten free options. That's fine, we adapted. However, when we ordered Bloody Marys, our glasses were served absent any lemon or lime wedge, celery, green olives et cetera, neither was the rim salted or Old Bay nor was it even offered...it was a glass of ice, vodka and a touch of mix. When asked about the lack of vegetables et cetra, I was told that's extra, an upcharge. So I ordered a second Bloody and received three small olives on a toothpick and a sliver of celery.
Yes, I am for Bloody's adorned with vegetables, but the airlines offers more than NYAJ's so called Bloody Mary. What has happened?
I'm sorry NYAJ's, I'm not asking for a Bloody Mary "meal", but come on... I forgot to look at my check and see how much the ice cost in my Bloody. Additionally, our friend ordered a Cobb salad and was offered hot grill chicken in lieu of cold chicken that normally comes standard for the Cobb. She agreed and was looking forward to it but it arrived, a cold Cobb salad. She was disappointed but too hungry to send it back. The waiter was good, but our guess is that the NYAJ's was understaffed. There was more people breaking down the buffet, than taking care of tables. Try again and try better NYAJ's, there's no need for an upcharge for a standard Bloody Mary. Even the discount airlines beat you!
Yummy food and waitress was very helpful with good food recommendations!
This was my first time eating at Not Your Average Joe’s so I didn’t know what to expect. I was blown away. I loved the low calorie options!
We will definitely dine here again.
Excellent food. Timing of food could have been better. Salads came out after a long while, then entrees came out while we were still eating salad.
Service was slow.
I went there for their first all you can eat Sunday Brunch.
The items were varied and very tasty. I particularly liked the Eggs Benedict (eggs cooked to perfection, although the hollandaise was so so) and the jambalaya. Fresh fruit at the end really topped it off. They also give you one drink...Mimosa or Bloody Mary (they may have been one more option). I chose the Bloody Mary, which was good, but would have been better if it had less horseradish. All in all a solid start.
Great allergen menu and gluten free selections. Items were clearly marked, with a few surprises that I couldn’t have, like the marinated steak bites.
Delicious! But it was truly the service that will have me coming back. Very good!
We were very disappointed with this visit. The manager told our waiter we could not have the dipping oil without the red pepper flakes. That seems like a strange policy and not one we’ve experienced before. Our waiter wasn’t very attentive either and our drinks were never refilled.
Great service and excellent food!
