“the veal brat is not 100% veal”
Reviewed April 16, 2009

I asked the owner of joes last holiday while he was grilling and selling 'all veal brats' if truly they were all veal. Of course i knew the answer before I asked it and I always repect honesty. When i looked at the packaging and boxes that he removed the so called brats from , the veal brats were actually primarily pork with only a small percentage of veal. not knowing this the owner was insistant that they were all veal. Wouldn't be nice to have and honest food vender as oppossed to one that practices deception for the sole purchase of selling a lesser but good product at price more consistant with a top quality 100% veal brat

“Small place, big value”
Reviewed April 15, 2009

The greatest Reuben ever. Fast freindly service. All of us loved our sandwiches. Be careful as you can walk right past it. Small place, clean, extreme skiing on videos. Overall, a great place to stop for lunch.

“Joe's is a must stop every time I'm in Vail”
Reviewed January 23, 2009

I come to Vail most weekends during ski season and never miss a chance to stop by Joe's. You can taste the quality in every bite. Personally I love the hot pastrami, but my wife always gets the Philly. The restaurant is incredibly clean, the staff is freindly and helpful. You will love it

“Good subs, tasty ice cream”
Reviewed July 26, 2007

We had two sandwiches made fresh for our hiking trip and even after more than two hours the baguette was still crisp. Ths size of the sandwich was larger than we expected possibly explaining the higher price. The sandwich was made exactly to our specification. The workers were friendly and courteous, service was prompt.
Small place not much to see or sit, yet nice to walk out and eat the ice cream (24 flavors!) or sandwich on a bench outside.
Ice cream sugar cones and cups are baked on the spot.
