Sometimes you find the best places, when the place you wanted to go is closed. We were actually headed to another restaurant, when my map app, let me know that it was closed half way there. Joes Diner was my second choice if the first place didn't work out. I'm so glad it didn't. Joes is a literal hole in... More

However must be very popular due to inexpensive food . Not the cleanest place with well worn booths. Food is simplistic at best and eatable. Service must have been having a bad day as she wasn't very pleasant this morning.

This Mom decided to take my kids 12 and 15 to Joe's for breakfast during summer vacation. With only 2 other customers at the bar the service was super slow. Our waitress was not attentive except when she brought the check. The pancakes were awful! Not homemade and lacking flavor. They only have whipped spread and fake syrup in a... More

A favorite place! A very small diner. Great coffee, great staff. It is so good, we ate there twice on a three day visit. The cheesy eggs and biscuits and gravy are my go to order. The biscuit is halved and put on the griddle. The sausage gravy is seasoned just right. The eggs are fluffy and full of cheddar... More

Joe's closes at 2pm, but it's quite the hopping place for good eats at a great price. The place was packed on a recent Thursday lunchtime but we only had to wait about 5 minutes for a table. My son and I had breakfast ..Joe's breakfast included one of the best waffles my son had ever had, and a ham... More

Eat at Joe's! It's that simple. Just go! This is the epitome of a local old fashioned neighborhood diner. Fast service and good food. The servers were very pleasant and everyone was attentive. The decor is an eclectic mix of neon, "collectible" soda bottles and random mugs that they keep full of hot fresh coffee. The prices are very reasonable... More

This is local eats and the best greasy spoon breakfast you will ever have. Make no mistake - Joe's is not pretty and there is a good chance you will have to bus someone else's dishes to get a table, fight the hung over college crowd on a weekend morning, but if you are looking for a good old school...

Basic dinner food with a Southern flair. Waffles, grits, sausage gravy, hash browns, great breakfast meats. Friendly service. Great staff.
