Giving you 2 stars because the service was really good. The food...not so good. We had six different dinners and all were very unforgettable. Scampi..no flavor. Salads were tasteless with cold meat. Even the grinder was as tasteless as we have ever had. Too bad, we wanted to like this because of the overwhelming reviews. But in the end this... More

Joey Garlic's can be summed up as good food; a lot of food; reasonable prices. Only downside is getting in!

I don't exactly live close to this resturaunt but it is worth the drive everytime I go. The food is delicious and plenty. I end up having leftovers that both me and my son eat on for days. The price is so reasonable. The only issue is if you don't get there early enough the wait can be almost 2... More
