Basic food, decent local joint

The place comes off as a local hangout, the food was good enough, the beer cold and the prices low. Formica and a little scale train running around the ceiling- get the idea?

Jo'Ane's restaurant is a lot of fun as long as you find a spot on the large outside patio in the shade. Live music accompanies very generous portions of Barbeque pork ribs or chicken or hamburgers. The fries are crisp. As well you can order a bottle of pretty good wine from the bar's wine list. A great place to... More

OK, we have tried this place several times, breakfast and lunch. Service was poor, wait staff attitudes poor, food not edible (seriously!). The breakfast was the worst ever! They never brought one of our party's meal and the other orders were wrong and cold. Lunch was just so-so with ribs and dry, dry chicken. (honestly, I couldn't eat it, but... More

The burgers, fries, salad and mini corndogs were great! The teriyaki chicken too dry. The service fantastic. Prices reasonable for the area..at a glance $10-25. Wish prime rib and specials were available every day, instead of specific days. The specials sounded amazing but were only available weekdays and we were there on a Sunday.

This was our third try for lunch, and it worked out great. The first place was too full to take our party of 7, the second had just closed, and we ended up here. My son loved watching the train, and we all enjoyed our meal, I had the managers favorite, which was a beef dip with ortega chilis and... More

We have been to Jo'An's several times for breakfast, especially, and every time we have had a great meal. The food is well prepared and the portions are generous. We usually get omelettes. The coffee is usually very good too. The location is also very accessible to the rest of the town.

We had a very nice meal here. The waitress was very nice and quite helpful. She was the only one working so was quite busy for her but she still was able to help us in a timely manner.

We enjoyed our BBQ lunch in the outside seating on a beautiful sunny day. Live music too. A lot of food for a great price. BBQ entree, baked beans and corn on the cob. Would go back.
