Usually when it is cold out I crave ice cream, the hotel we stayed at was limited so we went to joes. It was great and everyone was so friendly.

I had never been to a place like this before. And even when it was chilly out (for california) the place was booming. really good place near all the hotels.

Our experience is good. Kids love ice cream. We came on a perfect time. The line wasn't too long, the service is fast, they have parking, and since we visited at night their light exterior is bright. We ordered Chocolate and Vanilla but yeah we will go back for more.

place was closing down, but staff was nice enough to provide my kids with ice cream sandwiches. Located on busy street, but has plenty of parking on the side.

Loved the Italian ice. I really enjoyed the bata bing cherry ice. Also, you can have as many samples before you purchase.

It just doesn't get any better than Joe's! My favorite part is the creamy ice cream on the top and at the bottom!! Will be a customer forever!

How do I describe this? It's ice, but not icy. It's so delicious! Oh my goodness! It's totally worth the wait to get this! My daughter is allergic to milk and was in heaven eating here. Try the cookie one (has milk) and the strawberry. And the mango.

The Italian ice and shakes are very good. Be advised that the lines are long after 7pm. The line moves fast and you will understand why folk line up for these treats.

This place should be a local city landmark. The products are fantastic. The service is great. The price is right. Now if they only had the room to expand the location for both parking and more employees so the line (worth waiting in btw) could move faster.
