For 61 years, Little Joe’s Famous Pizza and Restaurante has been serving the people of the Chicago area. 

Little Joe’s first opened its doors in 1958 on 63rd Street in Chicago. On the same day it opened its doors, former owner Pat Albergo’s daughter, Sue, was born. And years later, Sue and her husband Abe Vazquez took over the business.
