“Good food, lacks good service”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

The food is good at Original Joe's, if someone will actually come and take your order. It's kind of a weird set up, as you walk in, there's no hostess so you don't know if you should just wait or seat yourself. They need a sign or something. The food served is tasty and they offer good portions.

“Not so original”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

This place is another chain restaurant out of the states similar to Moxies, Kelsey's, etc. They do decent food, but of the 3 times I've been, twice I said that I would definitely not order that again (butter chicken poutine, and one of their burgers)! The one thing I will commend them on, is that although they are American, they provide a great selection of Canadian (BC and Alberta) beers! Good job.

“Good pub grub”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

The food is great with good portions. The atmosphere is like you would expect a pub to be like but children are welcome during lunch hour. Seating is comfortable and the staff are friendly.

“Great ribs”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

I'm a fan of good ribs and I must say that OJ's Kansas Ribs are the best I've ever had. They were tasty and fall-off-the-bone tender. I have a new favorite place for ribs now, if their other locations have ribs this good.
