I wish they had 1/2 rating on trip advisor. The food was really good. The portion size was large for the price. Both of our meals were 1/2 eaten there and 1/2 taken home for another meal. We got the chicken parmesean and chicken souvlaki....More

This is my second favorite diner in VA! I come here for breakfast 3 or 4 days a week. The food is excellent, the service is efficient, friendly and always with a smile. It's clean. It's just a great diner experience. Really really affordable too.

We stopped in for a quick bite and were pleasantly surprised on hospitality of staff- very friendly! Portion sizes were just right- not too big comparatively to other restaurants. Nothing overly fancy on menu just good, simple breakfast. Would go again.

Had heard great things about Joe's but hadn't tried it until this visit. Met family at 12:15 on a Tuesday. It was crowded but there were still tables available. Service was wonderful and atmosphere was good, wasn't too noisy. I ordered fried haddock, mashed potatoes...More
