Happy Joe's: "Raining? Order Out For Delivery" Top 5 Page for this destination Galena Restaurant Tip by deecat

The last night that we stayed in our Time Share Condo outside of Galena, it was raining, and we had toured all day and were exhausted. We had finished packing for an early morning take off, and had cleaned out the refrigerator. Thus, the perfect solution to our hunger was to "order out".

Each day we had driven by a restaurant called Happy Joe's on Highway 20 on the way to our condominium, and in our condo lobby, I had seen an advertisement saying that Happy Joe's delivered right to our room. It was quite easy to call the number, give the order, and give the room number. There was a $2.00 delivery fee, which was well worth it.

Favorite Dish: It took about 40 minutes, and then the knock came at our door. A friendly delivery man handed us our piping hot pizza and our big salads. The salads were so large that we decided to share one, and I gave the other one to the woman on duty in the lobby. She was so thrilled.

We ordered individual pan pizzas. Mine was mushroom, onion, and green olives; Jill's was mushroom, onion, and black olives. We made short order of those pizzas and of the shared, crisp salad.

What a wonderful way to spend night filled with rain, a night when going to bed early fit the bill.
