Yaki Joe's Pizza is locally owned and independently operated by Sonya and Bobby Garcia. When they took over Yaki Joe's in 2007, they made inviting changes to decor and extensive changes to menu, including fresh and homemade. But those are only 2 of the elements that make Yaki Joe's in Merritt stand alone in the Pizza making business.
Recommended for its extraordinary pizzas, Yaki Joe's is also being recognized for its excellence in food quality and taste. No matter what you're ordering off their menu, fresh is the order of the day, and handmade is the must, right down to the washing and slicing of vegetables, cooking and slicing of meats, and grating of cheeses. There's nothing "packaged" about this restaurant and there's no scrimping with ingredients or on portion sizes. Bobby and Sonya know that if they compromise with the ingredients they put the integrity of the recipe at risk and jeopardize the satisfaction of the customer - and that's why Yaki Joe's fan base has been steadily growing yearly.
Our pizza and calzone menu is extensive, our 11 tasty varieties of wings are "the best" as our regular friends and customers tell us, and our pasta sauce is a family recipe that Sonya has honed to lip-smacking perfection. If you want something lighter but still heavy on taste, try a wrap or donair and a salad. Our fresh ingredients ensure that everything is ripe with flavour.
