Lakewood is fortunate to have many independent eateries from white cloth to diners such as Joe's Deli. I live near by and it took me a while to stop in and try it out, and I am very glad I did. I have had lunch and breakfast here several times and found the corned beef to be very good and... More

Party of four has lunch here before 1/2 split for Missouri. Sandwiches are piled high and can easily serve two folks. Service was OK but getting the check was a pain. Waving one's hands to attract the server was useless.

The food was great - quality and quantity. What a sandwich. It was huge. Everyone at our table took food home.

Reuben was "OK" which in Cleveland is not good enough. Corned beef was kinda chewy, almost seemed steamed or boiled. With all the options so close next time I'll head to Rocky River to the other Joe's.

On the outside, Joe's is a no-frills looking place, so much so that you might drive right past it and not consider stopping. That would be a mistake, however. Once in the door, the service is top notch, nice clean place, take-out or dine in. Huge menu but everything fresh and excellent quality...so good you almost don't expect it! Something... More

It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon in Lakewood / Cleveland in February 2016 it was 50! We went antiquing in Lakewood and I decided on corn beef sandwich. My wife said she didn't want anything. The look may have turned her off. Joe's Deli is a converted fast food restaurant. I went in an was greeted by 2 friendly girls... More

Joe's has recently renovated and expanded. Prices are slightly higher than before, and slightly above average, but the quality of the food and the friendly, fast service more than make up for the extra cost. The menu is extensive, featuring not just your usual fare but many middle eastern dishes. Portions are generous. The potato pancake appetizer is FOUR huge... More

Great for breakfast & dinner - the lunch/dinner menu is extensive, basic but outstanding food. Wait staff is pleasant & most helpful. Breakfast is a real treat & probably the most varied selections & top quality in the area. Heck, its better than anything in my hometown as well. Most everyone knows Joe's but if you don't or are on... More
