This is what we would call the great hole in the wall! lol. No real signs outside so easy to pass over. This isn't the place for ambiance but there are places to sit on the other half of the eatery. Food is put together in front of you. Lots of options available, I was able to get my sandwich... More

My husband and I just moved from Chicago to Northern California. We've been looking for a good deli like the ones we've been used to in Chicago. I think we found it in Joe's. The sandwiches are huge and tasty. We had the beef and turkey - both of which were very lean and flavorful. The service is great and... More

The only reason to go to Joe's is for a Roast Beef sandwich which is adequate. The sandwich is basic,au jus,pickle,shredded lettuce,meat on a French roll. Great taste for less than $7:00. A selection of sides and drinks are available. The interior of the restaurant lacks ambiance,but is very clean.

Oh, the French dip sandwiches are fantastic here! Carved before your eyes, delicious and hot. If you can't manage the regular size, you can ask for a small--less meat on the same bread for a lower price. Perfect. The coleslaw is excellent, too. The service is friendly and fast. Be prepared for a line at noon, but they move quickly.... More

Everyone must try a French dip beef sandwich. Tasty and yummy messy! Lunches only, but they do it well there.

Joe's in the best in Solano county. My mouth waters whenever I think of his french dip sandwich. Joe's au jus is well seasoned and coats the bread and meat. This is one of my favorite places to grab a sandwich. Love the potatoe salad and green beans. The staff is always friendly and welcomes you like an old friend..... More

oh wait! The French Dip! My dilemma every time I go! 'Joe' makes everything in house, so everything is delicious. I drag people from out of town there every time we pass by!

You don't go to Joe's for the atmosphere - you go for the piled to the sky roast beef sandwiches. Over 40 years and the place still has the best roast beef sandwiches! I also love their freshly made salads - particularly the potato salad (or should I say mashed potato salad). The ambiance is like a cafeteria from the... More
