Good food and service. Great place for a quick bite. Nice patio area with music for the warmer months.

Went into Jo'an's for lunch on a week stay at Idyllwild. Ordered burgers and more on menu. Took quite awhile so we decided to go outside and wait for our order (3 of us...not hard to keep track of when only patrons at the time) Waitress came outside and basically scolded us for moving from inside. Needless to say, the... More

We went to JoAnn's for lunch, four adults and a toddler. As I walked in, I kept thinking of all the ways I would have to entertain a three year old through the process of ordering, waiting, and eating; but my worries waned as soon as we entered the indoors dining room. A gigantic toy train set was making its... More

Was there last night, it had been at least 2 years since I had been to this place and the service and food were very bad then and they haven't changed at all. I arrived around 2pm walked into a half empty place with one person sitting at the bar, I sat at the bar and no one was around... More

We were there for several nights and was expecting to visit JoAnn's for breakfast since it was very close to where we were staying. Even though the website and the note on the front door said they should be open...they were never open. After mentioning this to a couple of locals...they said JoAnn's decides when they wanna be open.....they didn't... More

It's a kind of place that looks like it would have sub par food, but it was great. Everything out table had tasted great (onion rings, fries, burgers). They had some good local beers, and the service was very good. decently priced for being in the mountains too.

This is a nice spot to stop for breakfast or lunch but you have to have 2 hours to eat as they are almost always understaffed

We had your basic hamburgers there but they are pretty big 1/2 lb. creations. You can get bottom less sodas for $2.95 as well. Nothing exceptional but if you are in the mood for a burger, this is a good stop. One stall restrooms for a large facility encourages a line up.
