Great Lunch

Went for late lunch on a Friday afternoon. Moderately busy. We had the Joe's steak salad $11.99 and asked for rare steak and were pleased it came that way. Also the wood grilled chicken salad $10.99 was very tasty. The Bacon cheddar burger $10.99 was quite good. Best of everything was the Sierra... read more

Tahoe Joe's is one of my favorite restaurants in Visalia. The steaks I have had prepared have been spot on. The salads and soups are also very good. Big menu with lots of choices. I have eaten here several times and I have not been disappointed. Nice atmosphere inside and plenty of outside parking make this destination a must. Recommend!

When one pays $25 or more for a steak at a steakhouse it should be better than what I experienced on my last visit. The "ribeye" was tough and grizzly. Sides (salad, bread, baked potato, green beans are always good but the steaks, lately seem to bit hit and miss. I have had this experience at other restaurants so maybe... More

In general, we like Tahoe Joe's. We like the ambiance, the food, and the service, but you can tell a lot about a restaurant from the cleanliness of the restrooms. My wife was appalled with the mess in the women's restaurant, paper towels overflowing the receptacle, on the floor, and on the counters, toilet either stopped up or unflushed with... More

I was dying for a steak. Hotel food was not doing it for me anymore. Drove around and saw Tahoe Joe's - Finally a steak house! Food was - ok. So much better than the hotel, but not as good as I would expect from a steak house. TGI Friday's is better. The salad was very good and the rolls... More

This place is terrible. My wife and I have had horrible experiences the last few times we came here. The last time was the worst. The poor server was the only one in a large section and was basically set up to fail, no help at all. The manager was nowhere to be found. When we finally asked to speak... More

Okay, I know most chains serve some good food but most not so nice BUT this is my 4th meal here and again I'm impressed. Kind of on the pricier side of chains but worth a go. Plus the staff is great!!! The 5th star always goes to a great local restaurant, sorry... but good...

My son and I had prime rib. They have everything on it but the meat was a little bit overcooked. Very good services. Better than most restaurants that I have had dinner.

I had a rib eye steak. I ordered it medium but it was served medium rare. Once my dinner plate starts becoming bloody it's bye bye appetite. Great waste of 30 something dollars.
