Best Pizza – Go for the Chicago Dogs and come back for the amazing thin crust pizza. The sauce is extra zippy and they have all the topping choices that you are unable to get at Dominos or Pizza Hut.
Authentic Chicago dogs – My family loves this place. Not much for ambience, but the food is authentic Chicago. My husband's from Chicago and he knows his Viennas! The pizza is fantastic. We order our pizzas to go and eat them over at Minnehaha Park, which is right across Hiwatha.
Try their meatball sandwich. I never even knew I liked meatball sandwiches until I tried Joey D's. I've got their phone number in my cellphone, so I can order and pick up on my way home.
You'll have a difficult time getting a table during the meal hours, so be prepared to stand or get it to go.
We've seen lots of famous Minnesota people in here, including several Twins and Vikings.
This family-run hot dog and pizza stand is where locals go to grab a dog or slice. – In Short
You can get your food to go or eat it in the dining area, which is decorated with Chicago memorabilia and lots of Bulls, Bears and Blackhawks banners and photos. The alpha dog here is the Chicago-style dog, all decked out in mustard, relish, onions, tomatoes, peppers, celery salt and a garlicky pickle spear. Joey D's also does a brisk pizza business--not the deep-dish Chicago style, but thin crust or Sicilian style.
it was ok – overal experience was ok, food is cheap, but so is the price.
Love everything except the location! – Service is great. Food is great. Price is great. Atmosphere is right for the menu. Location, for me, is not ideal as it's in random residential south Mpls. off Hiawatha (55) very near the light rail line.
Last time I went, I had a chicago dog, cheese fries, a can of soda, and a piece of sausage pizza. The dog was awesome. The fries were a little fat/thick but had a tastey seasoning with melted processed cheese. Delicious! The pizza was also very good. It's not the best in the twin cities but VERY good and by the slice.
Know, if you live in the neighborhood, that they deliver. Also, they only take cash. Also, it's small and can be very packed!
Great Place for a Birthday – We recently celebrated my boyfriend's 29th birthday at Joey D's, with a dozen of his friends and family members. Let me just say the employees treated him like a king- with a crown and everything! I was totally blown away by their graciousness. I highly recommend this cozy neighborhood hot dog "stand" to anyone thinking of having a laid-back, enjoyable get together! Even if you are almost 30!
Taste of that sweet home Chicago! – I'm a transplanted Chicagoan, and have been looking for a place that serves food that I used to get back home. The problem seems to be when people promise "authentic Chicago" food, something must get lost in the translation of the recipe. Maybe it's the Minnesota accent or something...I don't know...but let me tell ya Joey D's has nailed it. Excelent beef, good pizza (although a Chicago deep dish would be nice) and the hot dog's...they remind me of a sweet day at Wrigley field watching the Cubs! 100% Chicago approved!!!
Italian Beef!! – Well-lit, not a lot of seating inside during the winter months, but with their patio and outside seating it would be a great place for a summer sandwich or hot-dog. Any place that can still get by on Cash-Only you simply know has to make great food. It was super clean and the staff was very helpful and overly friendly. Menu items consisted of Chicago Style hot dogs (w. all the fixins), pizza, and of course, the Italian Beef sandwich (get it w/ sweet and hot peppers, mozzarella) They do not ask whether you like it dipped or not dipped, you are gettin it dipped!! The memorabilia all over the walls gives you the feeling youll hear Mike Ditka and Jim McMahon arguing about how they got beat by the Dolphins back in 85. One can talk about Joey Ds, but really, one must experience it.
Pizza, Pizza – Since moving to South Minneapolis, I have been looking for some good pizza, and I have found it. I've never ate at the restaurant, but I love the pizza. I have it delivered frequently, and it's normally really quick.
Worth The Trip – A great place to take the kids. Very friendly staff and clean, clean, clean. The food is wonderful! Something for everyone. Even my vegetarian daughter was happy.
Don't miss it!
