I've been going to Joey's for over 20 years. It's a very small, but very good rib place. It's been updated and the ambience is now more like a restaurant than a rib joint. But it has lost some quality in what made it soooo great...the food! My daughter's ribs were cold, very cold. My ribs were not much better... More

I grew up on Joeys BBQ and have always loved it. The atmosphere is real causal but fun. The baby back ribs are my favorite and the meat just jumps off the bone and into my mouth!! The sweet potato fries are addictive and the marshmallow cream for dipping makes them more like desert! Joeys is a definate must try... More

Since Ray Moors started getting into politics and ranting on the editorial page of the newspaper, his restaurant has gone downhill. When he first started, these ribs were the best in town. But... in the past few years. No Good.

Ive been going here since I was a little girl. Good tri tip sandwiches. Good Prices. If you are looking for good home cooked BBQ this is the place to go.

When the words "This is the best brisket I ever had" came out of my friend's mouth, I'm blown away. I have been to Joey's a number of times over the years and the food quality has always been good. When I took a friend who really likes barbeque food, I was floored by his comment. At most restaurants I... More

Their BBQ is a Texas dry rub style, so not too heavy on the sauces. Good tri-tip, brisket, and I like their pork ribs a lot. They're famous for their big beef rib that they call dinosaur rib, but I don't usually like beef ribs. They have a good deal on weekdays I believe with your choice of 3 meats... More

Joey's BBQ is a Chino institution! I was born and raised in Chino and I think it has been there for 40 years. Delicious Barbeque. cornbread, cole slaw etc etc. Huge portions. You can eat outside in the summer and there is often live music on the weekends. Great atmosphere. You'd think you were in Texas.

Not the cheapest place around but you have to pay for quality. Get "The Works". A portion of so many good things on the menu. This whole in the wall is excellent. We went for our anniversary and have been coming here for so many years now I have lost track of how long. Decades. Do not mind the wait.... More

Haven't been here in a couple years for no reason, always forget about it so went here for a change up. The service was good, no complaints there. Our order was taken promptly, glasses stayed full, and food came out without a hitch. The quality of the food left us disappointed, we remembered it much better years ago. The garlic... More
