Sorry to see it’s closed as we always stopped here with our grandchildren when visiting the aquarium. Fun locations filled with lots of “car stuff”, good choice of menu a wonderful salad dressing which, alas, I never got the recipe for. So sad.

Sorry Joe lovers, CLOSED. You have to do better, to make it. Riverhead has so much to choose from. They hit the skids and the bar crowd wasn’t enough to keep them above water.

We stopped here for burgers when passing through Riverhead. We hoped for more. The service was not the best, the layout reverberated voices and it was not a great lunch. Sorry it wasn't better!

Came here for the ribs. Dying for some kind of st louis ribs on long island and famous daves in smithtown closed down so this is closest. Good bbq. I loved it. A lot of bang for the buck!

Food is good, very noisey and staff is fair. Every time we go we ended up in back with a tv that plays a race car event over and over. Tired of it.

I visited Joe's Garage not long after it opened and had an unusual and delicious chili. The unusual part was that it was not made with chopped meat, but with what the menu described as "burnt ends" - literally bits of their various barbecued meats....More
