EJ's wasn't a disappointment. The food was good, and once we were seated we were served promptly by a super friendly waitress. We even got cute souvenir cups with our drink orders. In fact, minus the stupid long wait (which is not their fault) I have no complaints. I DO, however, have an observation. The logo for Eskimo Joe's sorta... More

My wife and I detoured on our way back from Tulsa to OKC just to eat at Eskimo Joes. We arrived a few minutes after Noon and it was a 15 minute wait for a table. We were advised that bar seating was immediately available upstairs and so went upstairs and seating ourselves. The bartender provided immediate service. They were... More

My wife and I with two of our friends rode our motorcycles specifically to eat there. It is in sort of an odd spot, but there is a specific lot for parking, so that was nice. It took 45 minutes to get a table, but there was stuff to look at and places to sit. The waitress was very nice... More

Excellent ambiance in this old established hamburger joint. Great cheeseburgers, and excellent French fries. Very courteous waitstaff, and large souvenir shop. Right next to OSU, a beaufiful campus. Get there close to 11:00 am because it fills fast, even though it holds around 200-250. We went on a Wednesday, when school hadn't begun. I understand the weekends are very crowded.

I have visited Eskimo Joe's several times over the years. It is a popular place among university students and young professionals. The food is excellent, but the menu is limited. My guess is the most common order is hamburger, cheese fries (a favorite of President Bush), and a beer or a soft drink. Every time I've been at Joe's, I... More

We visited on a Saturday, mistake #1, I do realize that this is essentially a bar with food as an afterthought and it sure was an afterthought. There were flies all over the table and all the tables around us were complaining as well and no we were not seated outside! No one at our table (6 of us) received... More

We made our first visit today and we were not disappointed. First off my service dog was not questioned and they easily found a table to accommodate my wheel chair. We ordered the cheese fries they were delicious. The boys both had burgers, which they said were the best burgers ever. I had the chicken dinner with the baked potato... More

Eskimo Joe's has amazing cheese fries! We could make a meal of them. The burgers are thick and juicy with yummy toppings. It can get loud but it is worth it.

I mean, this is Stillwater. You have to say you were there! They have good burgers and good sides. Not a 5 star restaurant but a lot better than fast food! Fun place and a decent lunch. You will get a plastic cup to take home, and a smile!
