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.

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

Cool place to visit and eat. Lots of Route 66 stuff and great atmosphere. Decent food. Good place to stop in eastern New Mexico.

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

We tried Joe's after looking through the hotel directory for restaurants. The atmosphere was ok as was the food. The service was a bit lax as we had to flag down another server to get our server more than once.

This was my first ever experience of eating mexican food in the USA and, wow, delicious! I am so pleased we picked Joe's as it was totally delicious and the decor was so unique and quaint. The staff (and other customers) were so friendly, it was such a treat. We had beef fajitas and we had beef burrito. The portions... More
