It has been more than a decade since I ate at Joe Kool's. It is located close to home and my wife, son and I stopped in for lunch. Nothing has changed since the last visit. The service and food are still first-class and the atmosphere is lively without being painfully loud. Our next visit will happen very soon.

The restaurant still has the same vibe as it did years ago. We ordered a personal size "Kitchen Sink Pizza" and a New Yorker burger. Both were very good with the... More

Was in London for a conference and was looking for somewhere to catch the game on TV. Food was good, beer selection very good and the Toboggan Stout was great! Friendly staff and walking distance to the Delta and LCC.
