When I want a great burger basket we travel forty miles to Joe. The food is good and the atmosphere is laid back. Waitresses are hard working college girls trying to help pay for school. I just love the feeling of just relaxing and getting fat.

I am not a huge fan of Eskimo Joes. I will admit the food is okay. Never go during the lunch hour or on a game day. Even on a Monday at 1:15, there was an hour long wait. If you are in Stillwater, this is a place to go if you want the experience. Of course you must go... More

I preface this review by saying that we probably chose the absolute worst time to visit this place. Mid-afternoon, the Saturday before the begin of Fall semeter, we agreed to indulge our young Freshman by trying this Stillwater institution. Being told that we were in for an hour and a half wait (boy, we really do love our child!), we... More

Joe's is a cool place to visit and get a cold one. It's almost always packed as it's the #1 tourist destination in Stillwater. The cheese fries are marvelous and have to be tried. The sandwiches are just so so, but that's not the main attraction. Don't forget a t-shirt from the attached store.

Eskimo Joe's has been in Stillwater since the 70's. It is a destination restaurant. Famous also for its tee shirts that can be seen around the world. Hand cut cheese fries are a must.

Our server was rude the our entire time. She greeted my friends and I with a sassy attitude and rarely checked in on us. The place was not very busy since it was the middle of the afternoon so I was very angered when it took a little over an hour to get us our salads and chicken sandwiches out.... More

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.
