Finally a Man's Breakfast to knock your sock's off

I have lived now 17 years in Utah County and have really missed a great breakfast place that put out a man sized breakfast with plenty of great food. I have now found that place! Joe's is a little hole in the wall with a very large following. It's one of the best breakfas I have enjoyed... read more

If you are all about ambience and social presence, this place is not for you. If you are about home cooked amazing food with plenty of it and a little of a cook's style and attitude you will love this place! Joe is what I call a real person (what u see is what you get). He is full of... More

I have tried to go for breakfast before on the recommendation of colleagues, but they were not open. I had forgot about this joint until coworkers picked it for lunch one day. I ordered the pastrami sandwich. It was spectacular with caramelized onions on toasted rye. The menu was full of things that I would like to try. I will... More

I thought everything was incredibly salty. Joe was friendly, but taxing as the lunch wore on. Not really any side options for the health-conscious.

We love Joe's Cafe. It really is delicious. Joe is a very energetic dude, to say the least. He is loud, outspoken, and really seems to appreciate his customers. The breakfast at Joe's is awesome. The grits are INSANELY good! I LOVE the biscuits and gravy, and their pancakes are UNFREAKENBELIEVABLE!!! Don't get the LARGE one though, because the two... More

ok folks: this is SOUTHERN style breakfast. That means it will be heavy, fried food, none of this healthy light-breakfast stuff that you serve out west. I mean, seriously, you order biscuits and gravy and expect it to not be heavy? It's biscuits and sausage in gravy! It's one of the heaviest things you can eat for breakfast! You want... More

Took my son to this place from breakfast. Even though it was only a few blocks from his work he didn't know of it. It is a small restaurant and easy to overlook. I had a Denver omelet and my son had the biscuits and gravy with a couple eggs. Both were tasty. The omelet was large with a generous... More

Best breakfast I have had. Joe is there and cooking. Ordered a three egg vegetarian omelet, fresh vegetables. Next time I will split with a friend. I like how Joe does not use salt and pepper, let's the customer decide what it needs. I am from the South and noticed Joe has grits. I ordered and before doctoring, tasted it.... More

My husband and I woke up one morning in the mood for a good diner breakfast. We found this place online, and are glad we went. I had eggs, bacon, hash browns and sausage. It was well cooked and seasoned, with the right amount of greasiness. My husband got the biscuits and gravy and loved it. We tried the grits,... More

The bacon is locally sourced I think and is spectacular!!!! The grits are sweet,and very good but I am a salt grit southerner. The quality of the cooking and attention to watching the food to be sure it was cooked perfectly madeall the difference. We are from New orleans and know good food this place is terriffic.
