This was our first time eating here and the food was great. The salad bar was delicious and my veal was tender. I got a chocolate cake to go and that was store bought and dry. The restaurant decor is dated and would have been much more romantic with white table cloths and booths that you can sit in and... More

Joe and Mimas is a restaurant I frequent regularly and am never disappointed! On this occasion I took a business acquaintance out to lunch and ordered one of their lunch specials. It was a Goat Cheese Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette Dressing. It was incredible and particularly with one of their great hot breads to go along with it. This is... More

My family stopped in for a pizza and it was one of the best we have eaten. The crust was homemade sauce fresh and cooked perfect.

Recommended by a lifelong local resident that proved to be spot on. Joe and Mimmas menu offered me a wide array of dinner choices. Although Italian fare was the centerpiece a full range steak, chicken, pork, veal, and seafood supplement the pasta dishes. I chose the Chicken Parmiagian and salad bar. I chose well. It was delicious and the sauce... More

Enjoyed everything about this place. The food was good, with the large portions I generally expect when it comes to pasta. I had the penne rustiche which was as tasty as I expected given that it contained a lot of my favorite ingredients. My husband had the lasagna which was also quite good - not too spicy, not too sweet... More

Mimma brings original preparation to her meals with fresh ingredients and real Italian recipes. Her vegetarian lasagna is simply spectacular with a diverse mix of veggies and homemade marinara sauce. Her foccacia bread is divine and sells out quickly at dinner time. The veal and chicken dishes are delightful, tasty, and unique in our area.

I've never had a bad meal at Joe & Mimma's. Usually go once a month for lunch with a friend since it is one of the few places that doesn't play loud music, making it unable to hear each other. Food is excellent. Our church group often chooses to go there for special events, too.

The food and service is really good. Extremely nice waitresses. Prices are really reasonable. The place is clean but could use some updating.

Everyone else seems to like this restaurant but I'm not a fan. The ambiance inside is not much and the food is just too salty for me. Everything I've ever gotten there is extra salty. The last time we were there I ordered a grilled chicken salad thinking it probably wouldn't be too bad. The others at our table were... More
