Oregano Joes???

Does anyone remember the Italian restaurant called "Oregano Joes" that once was in Charlottesville? They had the best Gorgonzola dressing ever! Did they open another restaurant under a different name? Did the chef go to another local restaurant? I know this is a long shot, but one never knows.

Wow, now there's an ancient memory. Oregano Joe's closed in about 1999 or 2000, if I remember correctly. I'm not aware of them having opened under a different name, sorry. I remember the shock the day I drove past and saw they were out of business. If I remember right, that location is now occupied by a two level Arch's Frozen Yogurt.

Thank you so very much for your reply. Yes, it was a long time ago, but the food was so good (IMO) that I was only hoping. Have a great day.

The former owner may have opened Stonefire Kitchen in Barboursville, Va. I was told, at one time they were part of Stonefire Station, but I am not sure. I miss Oregano Joes. also.
