I’ve always wanted to dine in at “Original Joe’s” one block away from San Jose Marriott during the “Further Confusion” Furry Convention. This being the Third Year of my attending this con was the ‘Charmer’ - our Greymuzzle Panel Group of eight Furries decided to eat at “Original Joe’s” on a very busy Saturday, January 18th during FurCon 2020. They don’t take reservations, so as we arrived after 6:30pm it was packed with mostly Normies (non-Furries) and 49er Football fans (The NFC championship game would be held the next day in nearby Santa Clara) - So, we patiently waited for almost 90 mins!! It gave our group time to chat and talk to other diners who were waiting as well. We gave a crash course on “The Furry Fandom” to a couple of folks interested in what our convention was about. We were finally seated, and hot, delicious Sourdough bread started to come our way. Though our server was an older man, and somewhat slow - he had a great sense of humor and enjoyed his service. I got the Chicken Pesto Sandwich with side salad, and it was satisfying. Our group enjoyed their selections as well. It was a convenient location to the convention and I can now say I finally went to “Original Joe’s” at my third consecutive FC!! FOUR CLAWS UP!!!! Thanks for reading my review of “Original Joe’s” San Jose. Joe G. Bear - Redondo Beach, CA

Nicely hosted by Jay with good conversation and good humour! IPA was refreshing. The meat in the burger was monstrous! chips were a little cool and flat. Salted caramel gelato to finish was 10/10.... All in all a great meal. Thanks
