“best at this location since "Big Bone Lick"”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

This location has held a number of names, sometimes even closed through the 20 years I've been visiting Muncie for model Sailplane events. Amazing Joe's has re-set the bar.

Great ribs... The selection of sides is huge (try the sweet potato fries) with taste as good as the entree. Huge beer list. Standard margs for $5, top shelf for $7 & well worth it.

Wait staff friendly and handled our questions as new customers well even bringing manager to welcome us. A great value, our only "con" was the upstairs was quite loud. Very full place and know acoustics you had to talk loud to be heard in your own booth.

“Wow what a great surprise!”
Reviewed July 29, 2012 via mobile

Checking out our niece's new apartment in Muncie and this place was just convenient - wow what a great surprise! Had the salmon dinner. For $15 got a salad, side and a perfectly cooked piece of salmon that was nicely seasoned and had a side of sill sauce. For $6.49 the glass of Avalon Cabernet was pretty good too. Service was ridiculously good for a "college town restaurant.". Frankly was not surprised when I pulled this up and saw it was the #1 rated restaurant in Muncie. Very glad to have found it.

“My favorite local hometown resturant!”
Reviewed June 25, 2012

I live in this town and if you want great food with out the chain go here! I have been here for everything from b-day's to holidays to my own rehearsel dinner. There have been times when things didn't go as expected but I have never left unhappy. The manager always is available and around when needed and goes above and beyond if you are unhappy. We go so much the manager knows our family by face for sure, not sure if they know our names but they sure treat us right anyway. They got great, great, steaks and it seems that the later in the night you get one the better they are, guess cause the grill gets good and seasoned, they have special bugers with eggs and cheese sticks and stuff on them, everything is great I've never got anything that taste bad maybe just cooked wrong once or twice. Try here if you want good food and service without the chain feel, they also have a great little outdoor seating area and live music on thursdays I think through the summer.

“Never a disappointment!!”
Reviewed June 16, 2012 via mobile

One of our favorite places. You know its good if we have to drive 45 minutes one way! Filet was tender, baked potatoes sizeable and drinks tasty. Everyone who works there is genuinely friendly and the atmosphere is casual and great place for couples or families. You have to try this place!

“The name says it all!”
Reviewed June 15, 2012

Our family had steak, chicken, pasta, and salmon. All perfect. Salad was fresh, bread was unbelievable, the service was attentive and friendly but not pesky. Playlist was 60s to 80s... Fun to know the tunes. I would come back tomorrow.
