This is a fun place to eat. Their breakfast is wonderful, the waffles are a favorite. The decor is 1950's and 60's and music of that time era. The food is good and there is alot of it. The wait staff is slow at times but adequate. Tucked in an "out of the way" place near shopping it's a good... More

There are very few places in the Flowood area for a real sit down guy's breakfast. Joe's is the place to go for really good pan lakes and omelets.

I enjoyed the food and the staff when they were off Spillway Rd at Old Fannin, but when they moved out to Dogwood Festival something huge happened! The staff is stressed and the management was rude. I was seated and when I flagged a manager he asked what I needed. i told him I wanted a menu and he stated... More

This is like stepping back in time to a sixties diner.... or what I imagine that would be like. Food is ok. I am more fond of the breakfast items. didn't care much for the chili. Service is usually pretty good and cost is very reasonable. You could easily eat for $10 or less.

A good breakfast place but the incesant 50's music constantly grinding in my ear is too much. Turn off that mess please

This is my grandchildren's favorite place to eat, hands-down. Where else can you have cinnamon roll pancakes, bacon, and a milkshake at any time of the day? The food is simple and affordable. Fifties diner style, with swivel counter stools, booths, or square tables. The staff is always friendly and the restaurant has a neighborly feel.

Easy and simple diner where everyone is friendly. They specialize in breakfast (all day) and burgers, but also have daily dinner specials. It is the perfect place for chocolate chip pancakes, a fried egg sandwich or a vanilla coke. Kids love the juke box and pictures of James Dean, Marilyn Monroe and old cars that plaster the wall.

Had breakfast here on a Saturday morning. Brightly painted interior w/ faux 50's jukebox & plenty of table & counter seating. Nothing fancy here, but solid food at reasonable prices. Good cheesy eggs & hash browns, single sausage patty just on the greasy side & pancakes also very average. Friendly & quick service from a team of young ladies. Would... More

My kids love this restaurant, because they love to sit on the old-fashioned stools at the counter. We have tried their regular dinner foods (fried shrimp, hamburger), but Jo's breakfast stands out. Chocolate chip pancakes always seem to be good comfort food, regardless of the time of day. Order a chocolate or strawberry shake as well. They are wonderfully thick.... More
