Not sure if we just got a bad server or if in general the service does not pay attention but I didn't love this place. The food was nothing special and it took a long time for the server to return to fill drinks. Could just be a fluke with that server on that day but we won't be going back.

Thank Erin S

Hi Erin,

I'm sorry that you didn't enjoy your most recent experience here at Joe's. We take great pride in what is usually warm exemplary service and I'm sorry that hear that you didn't receive the typical treatment here the other day.

I'd like to invite you back here to Joe's for the great meal that you should have had the first time around. Please let me know when you would like to come back and I will arrange for you have a nice table and a couple of entrees on us.

Drinks were a good value. I had the prime rib French dip. Good but a little over priced for the quality. Bagguette was neither crispy nor chewy on the inside. They need to crisp the FF. We also, had the 3 dip nacho appetizer. Dip were very good but sparce on ships.
My wife had the chile and said that it was very good. Let's see a sandwich, nacho chips with dip, chile and 4 coctails, Bill was $59 + 11 for the tip. BTW service was very good.

This place used to impress (and I'm talking about the entire chain) but seems to have settled on average food. The prices match the food, average, while the service remains pretty good.

From the outside this restaurant looks like your typical sports bar or side-of-highway chain. However the food is made fresh, the menu is inventive, and everything we had was delicious. I was pleasantly surprised!
