Well, Joe actually sold this place a while back and the new owner(s) are not paying enough attention to the restaurant. On Saturday, my wife and I go in so we can have lunch and watch a UK basketball game. It took a while to...be seated (strike 1), and when we found one where we could both see a TV, the table wobbled so bad that my normal fix of "sweet and low" would not work: I finally had to double over about 8 napkins to make the table stable enough to eat off of. We then ordered two drinks which took forever to be brought to the table. (strike 2). We both ordered side salads and different burgers and sides. It took about 10 minutes for our drings to arrive. After about 12-13 minutes, the server returns saying that they don't have my housemade salad dressing because they were out of it. After switching to another dressing the server came back saying they were also out of that housemade dressing. In the meantime, my wife was served nothing. In about 3 more minutes, my wife's honey mustard dressing came back laughably as just mustard. At this point, we decided to leave and go to Arby's for carryout so we could see the remainder of the first half of Kentucky's game at home. Arby's was extremely fast, in and out in about 3 minutes. THIS PLACE HAS GONE WAY DOWNHILL THE LAST 3 CHANCES WE HAVE GIVEN IT. WE ARE DONE WITH BUNGLED JOE'S.More

Well, ordered a Blue Moon, but the server said they were out of oranges....no big deal. Then my wife's salad and our cheese sticks came. The lettuce in my wife's salad was so-so, seemed to be a day old made up salad. The cheese sticks...had been fried in very old oil, taste wasn't very good. Then my wife's fish and cole slaw came and my caesar salad with chicken. Her fish had the same old oil used and her fish was almost burned. The quantity was good, but only if it tasted good which it did not. Her cole slaw also seemed to be at least a day old. She didn't finish her fish and only ate maybe 1/3 of the cole slaw. My caesar salad was terrible. The lettuce was limp and showed signs of browning some. The size of the salad was barely more than a side salad and it was supposed to be an entree salad. The caesar dressing was minimal so I asked for another serving. Didn't really matter, the dressing was warm and it tasted rather bland. I only ate the chicken, also bland tasting, but at least it wasn't burned in the old oil. So, we only ate parts of everything we ordered. Then, to really add injury to this great waste of time, the bill came to $42 and I was already thinking about going to McDonalds to get better food. Oh, and we had to go find the server to get our check because she just disappeared. Not going back here for a long time....Cracker Barrel much better choice unless you only want beer.More

Service was good, place very crowded, many sat outside. I went indoors. Ordered a beer and a Big Burger. The meat was pre -pressed in something, perfectly round and thick. It was cooked to order my way, good burger, no complaints

If I could give them a -10, I would. 3 hours in and we had to get my daughter’s waffle fries to go. Truly the WORST service of my life. Do yourself a favor & go anywhere else

We were out shopping and wanted something for dinner. We walked in and got seated. I ordered sweet tea and they ran out, waitress said she didn't want to make a whole other canister, so she was going to give me unsweetened tea. Then we...ordered food. One of my sides had run out so they brought me a smaller portion. Food was ok, but nothing impressive. We won't be going back.More

This was our 2nd visit to BungaloJoes The first time was over a year ago and we were not impressed. Service was slow and food ordinary. We went again this week and were pleasantly surprised. My fish sandwich was really good and my wife's salad...looked great. Typical Sports Bar fare, but much improved. Well worth trying again.More

Try the lasagna. It’s to die for. The garlic bread is great too. The fiesta burger is pretty tasty. Shrimp tacos are off the hook. Stay away from the peel and eat shrimp. They are over cooked.

Disappointed in how the service and quality of food has declined since original opening here locally. Inconsistent wait staff attentiveness, not sure that I will return anytime soon. Better options in town
