Joe Kool's has been one my favorite haunts for decades. I'm so glad it is surviving the Pandemic. The Beers on tap were limited to their supplier. I chose another and found it fresh, crisp and cold. So refreshing. The Potstickers were served hot and cooked to perfection. Delish! I was disappointed in the basket of fries. I always thought they were fresh Hand cut fries, perhaps I remembered wrong. The ones delivered tasted like frozen store bought and were rather mediocre. Service was great and true Joe Kool standard. Definitely will return and try again.

Always loved their kitchen sink pizza and would travel into London to pick up. Today I was not impressed with the lack of toppings on the pizza. I ordered 2 large and was disappointed. I hope this can return to your previous standard of deep dish with lots of toppings.

We had the “kitchen sink” pizza, the “Jose Nachos” and chicken tenders delivered to us for Super Bowl. It was all hot and delicious! Can’t go wrong with Kools!

We went out during the holidays to celebrate in our "bubble" at Joe Kool's and totally enjoyed local perch and excellent service by Ms Catherine. Mike Smith is a brilliant restauranteur who has about 40 years experience running Joe Kool's and other restaurants. In conclusion, the covid rules were followed by staff and patrons alike and my mom and I had a wonderful time during our only outing. Thank you Mike Smith. Wishing you all the best in 2021!

Highly recommend! Free delivery on takeout, the food arrived still hot, we even ordered beer with our dinner! Ordered the new buttermilk fried chicken sandwich and hands down it is the best chicken sandwich in London - perfectly cooked, huge portions, and fresh ingredients. Takeout packaging is all paper/cardboard and recyclable which is always nice.

My favourite sandwich here is the Chicago club absolutely love it, also love style of this place, a real institution in London. Excellent selection of craft beer and ciders.

Newish to London and grabbed a drink on the patio with the beautiful weather we've had this week. Great service and atmosphere. Looking forward to coming back for dinner soon.

We just ordered delivery. We had the kitchen sink pizza, hot wings, deep fried pickles and potstickers. Everything arrived super hot and the fried food was super crispy. Everything was hot and from order to deliver it was about 30mins. Highly recommend. Felt like we were dining in, the delivered food quality was THAT GOOD!!!

Great food. The kids loved the New York burger and the Kitchen pizza. Friendly service!

Was a great private venue to celebrate my son‘s 26th birthday. Glad to support local and social distancing was not an issue because it was nearly empty. Sad to see on a Saturday night downtown London. Usually there’s a lineup to get in with the younger crowd as attendees. And after the many events that normally take place on weekends downtown London. They fuel our economy but I am grateful they are staying put at the moment.

A legendary London spot! No trip to London is complete without a visit to Joe Kool's. Can't say enough good things about this place. The owners, management and staff have done an incredible job navigating the current pandemic and continuing to serve up great food and drinks in a safe environment. Do your city a favour and support local spots like this, it's small businesses like Joe Kool's that keep our economy going!

A great place with a great Kitchen Sink pizza! Really helpful wait staff and food was up fast and hot after we ordered. Waiter was fast with drink refills which is always a plus. Next time you're in London stop in for dinner and see what it's all about.

Food is really good and the service is great. Would be nice if they had more of the toboggan beers on tap.


My eldest is starting to kick a few tires and we have officially started our University visits. Our first stop was my alma mater - University of Western Ontario - and a UWO visit would not be complete without a visit at Joe Kools lol. The boys had the Quesadeas and Chicken bites and I had the nachos - which were exactly as I remembered them :). Our server was great - I had some questions about the City and breakfast and she totally took her time with us making sure the boys appreciated London the way it should be ;). I will definitely be back (especially if my eldest reconsiders his choice of university and goes to UWO :)
