We had the metro with cabernet red onion jam and the Baja skirt. We liked the Baja skirt/cheese presentation! The Angus Burgers had great beef flavor and the sauces were very tasty. They have very creative combinations! Will be back for sure to try the rest out when we are in the area. The staff was very informative and fun!... More

Went to have lunch on a Saturday and noticed that things had changed from previous visits. Now you get seated and have someone come to the table and wait on you. Only problem is we sat there and no one ever approached us... After 10 minutes we left and the girl who sat us said goodbye as we left- never... More

When I go to a burger joint, I expect the burgers to steal the show. However, such was not the case. The rolls were good, but their size overwhelmed the void of flavor patty. I had the Tatanka burger which has crispy onions, blue cheese and hot sauce. The toppings were good and fresh, but crispy onions straws were scarce.... More

We had a great time here this past week in Lancaster. Joe's was one of the highlights. We were not expecting this cool/hip place in the middle of Lancaster Co. The burger menu options were awesome. We tried the famous amos, coffee seared burger, gouda, bbq'd onions-crazy good and my wife had the metro, cabernet red onion jam, gorgonzola and... More

We have been regulars at Joe since they opened. Although a tad overpriced, the food has always been awesome...great burgers and sandwiches, awesome fries with delicious sauces and great milkshakes. That said, I'm not sure we'll be going back any time soon. The service is TERRIBLE and the attitude of the servers and hostesses is even worse! They are inattentive,... More

I've been to Joe's eight, or ten times and never had anything I didn't think was terrific. Sometimes I go early in the day when they aren't very busy and sometimes I go at night when the place is packed. Tonight, it was packed.....but they can really sling the food. Don't worry if the place is crowded; once you sit... More

This has become are new go to family place for a burger or take-away dinner. No one ever seems to complain about anything, which is rare in our family for at least one person to not have a complaint. My husband is working his way through the beef burgers with the Guinness a clear stand out. My one year old... More

I had a cheeseburger which was excellent and my wife had a crab melt that she said was good. Nice atmosphere,fast and friendly service except you order from a bulletin board menu. The hand-cut fries were average. Neither of us liked the chips which were salty and onion flavored, The price for 2 sandwiches,1 order of fries and 1 drink... More

We've been to Joe's many times before and have always enjoyed the burgers and fries. We decided to go there this afternoon after a cold morning cutting down our Christmas tree. Again, the burgers were fantastic; HOWEVER, I can't say the same about the cupcakes. Joe's is owned by the same people as Haute Chocolate in Reading, so I am... More
