We visited Bethel church and then headed north. We stopped at Joe's Giant Orange cafe and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. We had a Portuguese Steak, chicken fajitas and chile rellano. Simply delicious! The wait staff was also very pleasant and helpful.

Service was quick, server was very nice, got the order correctly. I consider myself a decent chorizo aficionado and always like to compare one place to another, if chorizo is available. So I ordered the Chorizo Scramble breakfast, with rice and beans, and corn tortillas. The eggs and chorizo were just OK, a bit dry with not much spice. The... More

Returning to CA from OR and came across this place while searching online for a good breakfast/lunch spot off I5 near Redding, CA. Due to numerous excellent reviews we had seen we located Joe's Giant Orange Café in Shasta City. Easy on/off I5, and not impressive from the outside...but, don't be deceived as this appears to be a very popular... More

Great cafe. Saturday morning breakfast. I ordered chicken fried steak and eggs, hash browns and toast. The gravy was perfectly seasoned. All of our orders (4) were generous sized portions. Soft drinks and coffee was refilled quickly. The wait time was great. Seated quickly and we took our time placing our order as we were enjoying talking and selecting from... More

I've driven by this on I-5 a few times, the only place with a giant orange out front Decent parking, not too far off I-5. Chicken fried steak was deep fried, a bad sign. I just got the eggs (done just as I order) and their home made cottage fries, pretty good. Coffee kept coming, great service

This is a place I would not have chosen because it says "American and Mexican food". We went based on reviews and were very pleasantly surprised. The food was well prepared, delicious and the service was great.
