Their breakfast food is good. They have excellent home fries, biscuits and omelettes. I had an omelette with greenpeppers, sausage and swiss cheese and it was very good. You get get breakfast any time of the day but they usually run out of biscuits by early afternoon. Their lunch/dinner nenu has good deli style sandwiches (sailor, rueben, club etc) Their... More

This place is VERY cozy, and can get loud, make sure you're gonna be comfortable with that. This place has been a favorite here forever, lots of die-hard fans. I have yet to order any main dish other than spaghetti-it's so freakin yummy, and they give you enough to eat for the rest of the week. Their hummus plate and... More

It's not very often you find great food, a great atmosphere, great prices and an outstanding staff in one place, but this is it! The spaghetti a la Joe is enough for 3 people. And the lasagna is terrific. Will return!

Recommended for the best baked spaghetti anywhere. It's definitely a hidden Gem in Virginia. The portions are huge and, YES, the baked spaghetti is the best I've ever had.

This is one of those neighborhood joints that NEVER gets old. It is always great for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or just a snack and a beer. They have a giant beer list on a chalk board in both sections of the restaurant/bar. Portions are always large and the value is great. Highly recommended if you just want to feel the... More

Joe's Inn has been around for years because the staff, the food and the beers are excellent. Sometimes you have to wait for a table, but once you are seated, you are well taken care of. My favorite is spaghetti ala Joes with meatballs is perfect for two. The beers are cold and they say the desserts are awesome, but... More

Love the staff at this place. Can't say enough good things about them. The food is yummy and the prices are great. It is a busy place, but worth the wait.

Authentic quaint little restaurant tucked away just min away from Carytown and the fan. Food is delicious and extremely plentiful. Wait staff is very friendly and helpful. Nice place to take your spouse on a date

Joe's Inn is a little hole in the wall, so it can be hard to find, but it is completely worth the find! You can count on a wait if you're not there for an early dinner. Great drink & food prices. The pasta dishes you could split between several people! Great pizza as well. Its a tight space, but... More

Joe's, is our go-to place, when family members get together in the Fan District. Something for everyone, great Greek Salad. Note, can be a bit of a wait.
