About Not Your Average Joe's Gluten Free Menu
There was no shortage of restaurants when Not Your Average Joe's first opened in 1994. There was, however, a shortage of great restaurants with reasonable prices in the suburbs. Tired of driving into the city for good food and paying too much for the privilege, Steve Silverstein decided to build the kind of restaurant he was longing for. The name Not Your Average Joe's came out of Steve’s determination to avoid the run-of-the-mill-restaurant rut. He wanted to create a unique neighborhood place, where people know your name, where the food and prices are great, where you feel special without putting on special clothes. Obviously, a lot of people want what he wanted.
Today with more than a dozen locations in the Boston area and Northern Virginia (and a great gluten-free menu!), Not Your Average Joe's is satisfying a seemingly limitless hunger for creative casual cuisine. No, the world doesn’t need another restaurant. But it could use a few more Not Your Average Joe’s!
