I have food allergies and can always depend on Joe's menu and kitchen to deliver not only attractively presented, but delicious food that I KNOW will not contain allergens.

We've eaten here several times when we didn't want to cook and didn't care much what we ate. That's the kind of place it is. Average food- not bad, not good. Should just be called "Eat at Joe's".
