The happy hour burgers are good & the beer is nice & cold. It's a cozy place to relax in the middle of your shopping day.

My husband and I were very disappointed in our meal. We were served a rotten salad that had to go back. Seriously, how do you serve a salad with black slimmy red leaf lettuce. We then had a bowl of soup that had to be...More

We had a stop at the post office and didn't want to eat at Chipotle or Panera, so thought we would give this a try. It's a chain, in several Central California cities, which has been around about 20 years. I had the Joe's steak,...More

After tip, our dinner for two was $125. Service was efficient although not overly friendly. My filet was over salted. My husband enjoyed the ribs.

A late night stop on the road for us, led to Tahoe Joes... We had chicken wings, filet mignon, and ribs. The wings were spicy, tasty, but not overwhelmingly spicy. Good size. The filet was above average. You get 2 5oz filets wrapped in bacon....More
