Check it out!

Great service with healthy sized free tastings. We shared the regular and it was perfect otherwise it would have been too much to eat one regular by myself! Fuzzy wuzzy and the bing cherry were my favorite.

This was across the street from the hotel we stayed at (the Hacienda Inn and Suites. Do not stay here.) and we always saw it busy. Well on the last day as my girlfriend and I were leaving we decided to see what all the hubbub was. Basically Italian iced desserts and ice cream. The options were numerous, the service... More

My family and I love this place. It can get a little busy, but well worth any wait. My favorite is the joelatte, italian ice (any flavor) with soft serve ice cream in the middle. A must visit if you are in the area

Joe's is right down the street from my work and down the street from Disneyland. The original is tiny and further down the street but an additional, larger Joe's was built closer, on the same street. They have the best soft serve ice cream that you can feel clogging your arteries and the Italian ice is wonderful. The Joe Latti... More

Admittedly, I am not a huge fan of italian ice - but this place def delivers on freshness, flavor and service. My family loves this place on a sunny day (most days in So Cal! ha!!) Their fave is the Joe Latte which is Italian Ice and Soft Serve.

Great ice cream and portions were big. Feels like an old fashion ice cream parlor with very bright and cheerful colors.We visited Joe's twice on our vacation. Wish we had one of these at my home town.

Always seemed to be long lines here when we went by so stopped one evening when there wasn't one. Oh my, I'd be willing to wait in line in the future. Great ice cream and ice concoctions. And staff is really nice about accommodating special orders.
