Steak, and more

This establishment has been in town for a few years , and I never had eaten there until recently. It might be listed as a "Famous Steakhouse", but they serve a lot more than just steak. I went with a group of co-workers during lunch time, and boy were they busy. Everyone in our party ordered... read more

there is no place that has better steaks, snacks, salads or drinks, always very busy but worth any wait time you have to put in. and parking usually is hard to fined.

I have not been here in quite some time. Made a visit for a special occasion. Had the Joe's special - pretty good, my other two in the party both had salads. Had the RR Camp shrimp for an appetizer. That was pretty good too. The service was the standout. Our server was very attentive, but not overly so. She... More

It's a popular place here in town so we gave it a try. We even went back two other times. It's just not as good as other local steak houses. Their menu could be revamped a little and that would help. Not everyone wants pepper on everything. Good old fashioned steak (tender please - mine wasn't on any of our... More

We enjoyed Tahoe Joes on two different occasions last month. Both times delivered a nice meal, good customer service and an enjoyable atmosphere.

Went to dinner with another couple on a Saturday night. Service was good. Margaritas were very good. My wife had the twin fillets and they were cooked perfectly. The baby greens salad is really good. I had the ribs & railroad shrimp. The ribs were decent but I do not recommend the shrimp - crust was hard and very little... More

Tahoe joes menu is very diversified and it has a 20 ounce, no bone, ribeye steak that is very good and man size big. I have had several of them and haven't had a bad one yet! They also make a great Cadillac Marguerita!

This is a very good place to go for a good steak. I enjoy the calamari steak dinner and their greenbeans a very good. Always get good service here. They have nice salads here also.

It's a reliable place for lunch. Good menu ok prices. If you are on a lunch break or want separate tickets, tell them when you are ordering. They are getting slammed with the overflow for another newly opened restaurant (more than usual) in the same center. Bar is good patio has heaters.

My husband and I decided to go to Tahoe Joe's as it's a favorite for a special Valentine's Day meal. We went early which worked out great - no long lines. We had a wonderful waitress McKay very friendly and started off with two appetizers the "Railroad Camp Shrimp" and the "Seared Ahi Tuna" both were fantastic! Next we had... More
