We were given a restaurant.com gift certificate and finally got a chance to use it. We went on what appeared to be "family night" with kids eat free and a man with balloon art. My husband got a burger which he enjoyed but we weren't impressed with the kids meals or salad bar. The soup was nothing special. When we went to pay for our meal the manager told us we could not combine the kids eat free with our restaurant.com certificate. We understood not being able to use our alumni discount as it was a type of coupon but should have been able to use the certificate because it's supposed to be like a gift card. There was nothing on the certificate that stated it couldn't be combined with a standing deal at the restaurant. We left without using the certificate and won't return to use it. The waiter and manager knew it was our first time visiting. It is also our last.

Wonderfully seasoned and done to your order. No doubt it will be correct.

Joe's burgers are consistently high quality and better than any burger in town. They have begun serving grass fed beef and that only serves to elevate the quality of an already good burger. I take my friends here. No one has ever been disappointed and agree with my rating. While they are served with fries, they let you substitute a different side such as grilled asparagus, broccoli, sweet potato fries, etc

I have usually enjoyed eating at Joe's Place and I particularly enjoy their Black and Bleu burger. We were seated this time after a longer than usual wait and we were given no menus. When the waitress arrived we were not prepared to order and she found menus for us and returned. They were out of the beer I wanted but did have the basic "light" beer which I accepted. My guest's hamburger was not as good as usual and mine also suffered. For reasons that I don't understand in spite of my cutting the sandwich in half to facilitate eating it even the half burger would not stay together and tomato, lettuce and beef kept coming apart until I made it a knife and fork burger. Ask for extra napkins when the burger is served. They are so large and "juicy/greasy" that you will immediately have the juice all over you and getting a server back with napkins is not always easy. French fries were served with the burger and the fries portion size was about twice what I wanted. Apparently servers were quite busy since we saw less of ours than usual. I usually love their burger and will try again next time and hope they have not made some change that caused this particular problem. Although we arrived in time for the early bird dinner specials our wait to be seated took us out of that time period. Prices are reasonable and they do have a frequent diner program that provides rebates when you accumulate enough points.
