I travel all around the south with my job, and Joey's is the best pizza in the south, period. And I know my pizza. This place even surpasses the late Bob Russo and Rocky's Brick Oven in Atlanta. OH SO GOOD AND SUCH NICE PEOPLE.
Forgive them their yankiness.
Joey's pizza is the real deal. This is a family owned and opperated resturant with great environment and even better food!!!
Joey's has the best pizza and Italian dishes ever!! You will enjoy the food very much, especially the service and ambiance. POINTER: Joey is the coolest as well as his wife Chris!! Don't take his attitude into offense, he means well.
Pros: PIZZA, PRICES, CUSTOMER SERVICE
OK people, we need to talk! I feel compelled to comment on a few of these recent negative comments about Joey's.
Firstly, Anthony, I doubt you are a real New Yorker, because Lombardi's ain't nothing to write home about, and yes, your are right, there is a "famous Ray's" on every corner. But a real New Yorker knows that Ray's became commercialized after all the hype, and there is only one true Ray's in the Village that makes great pizza. Oh, and by the way, I would never eat my pizza from a Coal Burning Oven, but you give me a Wood Fired Oven - now that's a good pizza.
Second, to the SoccorMom, Joey's is one of the cleanest restaurants in all of Nashville, and they have the inspection score to prove it. I really believe in the Nashville food rating system, and if there was an issue with improperly stored foods, I'm sure it would have been raised. Besides, every pizzeria I've ever visited "freshened up" their pizza slices. What do you do at home with leftover pizza? Give me a break.
Lastly, to Sugar... I'm sorry - I didn't get through your whole blog. I got distracted with your use of the numbers 2 and 4 instead of "to" and "for", so I just stopped reading. I'm sure you have a point somewhere in your write-up, but just for future reference, 4 pizzas 4 the office is NOT a big order.
Look folks, Joey and Chris are good people. They would give the shirt off of their backs for someone in need. The "rudeness" that so many people speak of is not meant to insult anyone. YOU try serving 300+ pizzas (est.) per day. The occasional (and rare) order detail may get missed, and non-standard requests may be greeted with a less than favorable demeanor. Just get over it, enjoy the show (and eat the best pizza in Nashville)!

Pros: Great food, Good people, Reasonable prices
Cons: That darn fountain, no Tripe, Need clam sauce
Eat at Joey's House of Pizza. The food is awesome and Joey and his family are the coolest New Yorker's! Joey's two daughters are really hot too! But ofcourse thats not the only reason why Im in there atleast two times a week. There pizza is the best hands down and their service is incredible.
Because I like my clients to have the best, I take all of my clients to Joey's for lunch at least once during their househunting trips. One of my clients still comes all the way to Brentwood to have pizza at Joey's even though they are now living in Hendersonville.
Pros: Great Food, Great Prices, Fun place to eat.
This is the best pizza in town. Joey and his family have created a great atmosphere for a all ages. You can take you date or the whole family it is great food and great environment!!
I highly recommend it!!
Pros: food, atmosphere, good parking
Awesome, Awesome, Incredible: I dont know what other words desrcibe this place. From the unbelievable pizza to the out of this world eggplant parm and the nice familiar faces, Joey's is a hot spot.
PS: Dont be afraid of Joey, he is a nice guy.
Joey and his wife make their food the way my Italian family makes theirs!! Although, they have their own recipes and vice versa. The quality and quanity is all there with out a BIG price. They have better prices then the not so good chain restaurants. I will be a customer for life because I feel at home at Joey's!!
Joey's has the BEST pizza, not only in TN but the best my family and friends have ever tasted! They also have the best Italian food. Better than my Nonna's (Italian for grandma). I swear it, it's the best and the people and the ambiance is excellent as well. You fall right into the epitome of New York and Little Italy!!!! Thank you Joey and Chris(the owners) for doing the best job in town!!
Pros: Great food, Excellent prices, Friendly people
I love going to Joey's, not only for their Great Pizza and Italian dishes but also for the family respect that I recieve. My family and I feel like we are back home in Brooklyn when we walk into Joey's. The aroma will lift you off your feet and the taste will make you addicted.
Pros: Great FOOD, good prices, awesome people
This pizza, and all the great food you can get at Joey's House of Pizza will leave you wanting more. Just go by there sometime at lunch and take a look at the line out the door. This guy is the real thing. Only other pizza in town that is even close is Manny's... and they are related!!! Joey's is much bigger place to eat, and you'll get to meet the whole family while you are there. Chris and Joey are AWESOME people.
Pros: Great food, cool place, inexpensive
Everything about Joey's is authentic: the food, the attitude, and the atmosphere. You cant get all this anywhere in TN, maybe not anywhere these days except at Joey's !! The Great pizza and the to die for entree's such as the chicken parmigian is excellent!! I have eaten at every pizza place in TN, and Joey's is hands down, the BEST.
Pros: food, price, service
Not only is the food AWESOME (BEST marinara I have EVER had) Joey & his staff (consisting of his family) are so nice - something that is rare in the food service industry these days.
Pros: Food, Staff
Joey's is awesome; you should try it if you haven't. Not only is the food authentic but the people who own it are as well. Everything you could ask for in a pizzeria!
Pros: great food, good prices, nice people
The Best Ever, You need to go to Joey's!!! I have never had Pizza so GREAT!!
Pros: great pizza, good prices, nice service
Joey's makes the best pizza in TN. Nothing I have ever had, even up North, comes close to it. On top of that (as if it alone wasn't enough) the service is nice and the place is clean. 10/10
Pros: good parking, good food, good price
I love Joey's and the original House of Pizza downtown also. It is great knowing that a family-operated establishment is taking care of me. Thanks for many years of credible service!!!!!
Pros: good prices, great food, awesome people
Its the best it beats the rest take it from me.
The pizza critic
Pros: the friendly servers, the food, best smiles
I have eaten at many pizza joints but this one blows the rest of them out of the water! They have fresh, NY style pizza that makes my mouth water. I could not go a straight week with out it, maybe even a couple of days. I eat at Joey's during lunch and stop by to pick up a pizza on the way home at night. Joey's House of Pizza is my home away from home. I love you guys, keep makin those terrific pizzas!!
Pros: Excellent food! , Great service , The best pizza!
Cons: nope, none!
Joey's House of Pizza has the best pizza. You should believe it, because Iam from NY. I have lived out here in TN for over ten years and I could never find real pizza until I found Joey's. Thank God!!
Pros: best pizza, friendly people
Joey's pizza speaks for itself, so Im just going to say, "WOW", Thats a good pie"!!!
Pros: great prices, Awesome food!!, Nice people
Cons: There isn't any
"Yep! Im in Heaven", I said when I discovered Joey's House of Pizza. It's the best pizza in the state. The pastas and subs take you to another level. It is awesomely wonderful. Thank You Joey and Chris, for bringing real NY pizza and Italian food to Nashville TN.
Pros: terrific food, good service, nice people
Joey's House of Pizza hooked me up with a great catering for my daughters 16th birthday. Alot of family from NY came to town for the party. They said they felt like they never left Brooklyn. Joey's is the real deal. They are very hospitable and treated us like family. The eggplant parmesan and lasagna was out of this world. It's so good, I swear, I could drink their sauce.
Pros: Great Food, Awesome Service, Reliable people
Joey's House of Pizza is one of the reasons why I stay in Nashville. The food is phenomenal! The people are great. Try the lasagna and the chicken parmesan, its awesome, and of course, the pizza is untouchable. No one makes a pizza pie like Joey's.
Pros: great people, great food, great service
Joey's House of Pizza has the best pizza in Tennessee. I have tried all the pizza joints around town and none can compare to Joey's!! Their atmosphere is designed beautifully and their service is out of this world. It makes you fell like your back in New York. Joey and Chris are great and so is their family. Joey's always gives me and my family the best treatment and the best food in Nashville!! Try Joey's and you will never eat at any other pizza place.
Pros: Great food, good prices, good service
Anyone who knows ANYTHING about NY style pizza knows Joey's is the best pizza within driving distance. Sauce is the real thing, and as a proud Italian from the northeast, I should know. The toppings are fresh and homemade, and cover nearly every square inch of the pie! I've read a few reviews that knock Joey's for it's sometimes loud and harried atmosphere... get over yourself. You obviously have never been exposed to the Italian culture!! To me, it's a wonderful slice of home!!!! Joey, Chris and family... you guys are the best... keep it up!
Pros: The food, The food, THE FOOD!!!
Cons: not open weekends
Joey's has exact duplicate of standard NY/NJ pizza in TN. Joey's should not even be listed near those pretenders like papa johns, etc
Pros: food, food, food
Cons: no late hours
The best pizza in Nashville, and everything else is good too!
Joey's is the best pizza. I go to a private school and teachers go to Joey's during their lunch break. Joey's is a perfect example of the real Italian, New York style pizza. Thanks, Joey!
Pros: Good Location, Great Enviorment, Portions
Joey's may have the New York attitude and ambiance when it comes to a pizzeria, but it doesn't have the taste. Alot of flash and little flavor.
Pros: nice aroma, selection
Cons: crowded, noisy, drafty
Anybody who rates Papa Johns ahead of Joeys Pizza is crazy. I am originally from the Northeast and I am 100% Italian. Believe me, I know what good pizza is and its Joeys pizza. The crust is perfection, the sauce is so fresh and the toppings..... the generous toppings could be a meal in themselves, so delicious. Everything they offer is out of this world. Since I moved down south I hadn't had a good slice of pizza until Joeys.
Pros: everything is fresh, family atmosphere, decorated nicely
They have fast, friendly service with awesome New York Style Pizza.
Best Italian Food in the city!! Great Pizza, Calzone, Ziti, Spaghetti, Lasagna...you name it!
Eating at Joeys is like traveling to Little Italy in New York for a slice. Perfect taste! Perfect crust! Perfect people!
Pros: food, service
You want some verbal abuse to go with that pizza?
Maybe for christmas I'll buy them a book on hospitality. Damn!! what a strange experience.
The pizza is not bad, but the attitudes are.
Pros: decent pizza
Cons: They need happy pills
I've eaten at all the Nashville-area pizza places, and Joey's is without a doubt the freshest, tastiest and all-around best and most authentic New York-style pizza, calzones, eggplant subs, etc. I should know, I was born in Brooklyn!
Cons: occasionally crowded
Best in town, in my opinion. I was in the Navy and travelled quite a bit, had pizza all over. This is some good stuff.
Pros: Good Pie, Good Sauce, Good Cheese
Cons: Toppings = expensive
IF you can find it; IF you can believe a shiny Brentwood strip center could have it; you won't believe the fresh REAL Italian food.
Pizza may not be from Italy, but this Brooklyn couple has figured it out. I was truly shocked. AND you get to meet the owners. But you are not going for the entertainment.
Pros: Food, Food, Food
Wonderful pizza...just like being in NY!!! Close your eyes, and you'll fell like you've taken a NY minute.
Truly, the best pizza in Nashville...if you want authentic NY pizza. For that Windy City mush, you may want to stick with Pizza Hut and their many clones. Joey's is the real deal !! The atmosphere is great, the food is stellar, and I couldn't be more pleased. I refuse....refuse....to go anywhere else.
Pros: Inexpensive, Great Quality, Good Parking
Joey's has by far, the absolute BEST Italian food in Nashville. It is strictly Brooklyn/New York Italian with the best homemade marinara sauce ever. The pizza is wonderful and the calzones are orgasmic. Why eat at wannabe restaurants, when you can have the real thing!
Joey's has the best pizza in town. Thanks for giving us a taste what pizza should be! You owe it to yourself to enjoy what restaurant serves up!
I used to consider Joey's pizza distinguished from the rest, but it definitely has been on the decline lately. The Cool Springs' days were the best. Anyway, I can recall one recent evening when the pizza was just uncharacteristically runny, greasy, and cold. In addition, the lettuce in my salad was wilted. I couldn't believe that I was calling some squalid chain like Papa Johns because ole reliable Joeys let me down. This, unfortuantely, has been a trend.
I've eaten there many time. I'm a pizza maven. I travel 35 mile for their food. The pizza is thin and crispy. All other entrees are hot and extremely tasty. If you can endure the crowds at lunchtime, it's worth the trip and the wait. What would you expect from a displaced New Yorker?
Good pizza located downtown in the Arcade. Not spectactular but theyve got a good selection and you can buy by the slice. Seem to be open during lunch hours during the week.
