I don't know if I want to live in a world where there are no Happy Joe's.

Every time I have moved away from the QCA, the one thing I always get before I go is a large sausage and mushroom pan pizza.

According to WQAD, the unthinkable has happened. I've never heard of this Quad City staple closing, but the Happy Joe's Pizza Grille at the Mills in Moline has closed. The place hasn't been open 2 years yet. It still has that new restaurant smell.

The pizza grille idea is doing well everywhere else in the Quad Cities (the one on Locust in Davenport is always packed). The employees at the Moline location have been offered jobs at other Happy Joe's restaurants.
