My husband Mike and I met in Ford Dodge, IA. One of our first dates was dinner at Happy Joe's. Three months after we met, we invited my parents for pizza at Happy Joe's. While waiting in the parking lot for my parents, Mike Proposed marriage. I said, "YES!" and he put the engagement ring on my finger.
That was over 30 years ago. In 1980 we moved to Davenport and were excited to learn that Happy Joe's was born here. All three of our daughters have celebrated their birthdays at Happy Joe's with pizza, ice cream, and the old fashioned horn honking.
Now our granddaughters are old enough to enjoy the family tradition of pizza, fun, and the story of how grandpa proposed to grandma in the parking lot of Happy Joe's!
