Restaurant looks like a typical bar from the outside but it is a clean and friendly plase to eat. The chicken wings were the best! Moist and tender. The salad was large and so was the burger! Loved it!

Following our five star review last month here is the flip side of the coin. Visited yesterday and we were very disappointed. Can it be that this restaurant is starting to nickle and dime ? The coleslaw sidedish comes in a thimble and was frankly tasteless with no mayonnaise content at all. Very watery. The Bacon Cheeseburger at 7.95 is... More

We have enjoyed many places in the US but this one must be among the very best. The boneless chicken wings are superb and I defy you to finish Joe's special burger. Sensational staff. Terrific menu and a great atmosphere. Very highly recommended.

We have visited Joe's several times and are never disappointed. The service is great and the daily specials are great and reasonably priced. And if you like Crab Ragoons...this is the best place we have found so far. They are delicious!!

I seen some other posts that don't appreciate this place. Like every restaurant I've visited: Each has it specialty. This place is the Cole Slaw and the Pork tenderloin Sandwich. Joes Burger is also excellent. Visited several times and will definitely go back.

The cole slaw was GREAT. The pulled pork was all fat and rather disgusting. The rest of the food was mediocre.

Joes 2nd Street Diner is a place that anyone who likes good food and cold beer should try to visit. I have visited many diners, bars, etc. and love that type of food; this is probably the best bar/diner food I have ever had. I ordered the pork tenderloin sandwich, fries, and slaw and each one was right on the... More

My wife and I ate lunch here on Sunday before Labor Day. The service was a bit slow but not awful. The food, however, was wonderful. I had a fried fish dinner. It was 3 pieces of fried cod, French fries and cole slaw. The cod an fries were cooked just right. The cole slaw was outstanding. It wasn't swimming... More
