We loved the chicken fried steak. It was tender and juicy. The sides were fresh and well seasoned and our server was attentive to our needs.

This place is just fantastic. Step back into old Route 66 in a small cozy restaurant complete with souvenir shop, enjoy the hospitality of the host and service, and take in some great Mexican food freshly prepared by hand and not out of a can. We ate there several times on our stay and loved it all. The food was... More

We were greeted promptly. Pulled tables together for a 7-top for us quickly (and they were busy too). Service and food was good at a good price. They served Mexican and American food and it was all good. We would certainly stop in again.

Very disappointed. ..... My husband's family is from Santa Rosa. I was really looking forward to eating at Joesephs. We waited 1 hr for our food.. Our server was un seen and un heard of after we were served our drinks. We had to ask another server, who at that point seemed frustrated and just brought us out pitches. When... More

We were looking for someplace to eat in Santa Rosa. One place we checked ion TripAdvisor looked good, but there were literally no cars in the parking lot! That made us nervous, so we saw Joe's and decided to drop in. We WILL be back! We ate in the front area and it has an old time diner/60's feel to... More

One of the only places to eat in Santa Rosa we could find. Very crowded tables are very close together.

The food was good & fast (we ordered tex-mex). The gift shop had many interesting souvenirs. The restaurant has a lot of memorabilia sitting around. The location was easy to find.

Great New Mexican food selections as well as standard US items. Decorations reflect the Route 66 scene. Good prices. Wait staff was very friendly and accommodating.

We stumbled across this restaurant and it turned out to be surprisingly good. The restaurant isn't much to look at from the outside or on the inside for that matter. The menu is a bit of a mixed bag - several styles to choose from Mexican, American, or sandwiches. I think each of us tried something different and all were... More
