Joe's is usually very good but it seems like the service have gone downhill in the last year. Hour and a half for service?! Too bad really. Food is still pretty good.

We had a party of 9 and walked in as the first customers but filled up quickly. They have a kids menu. Hamburgers are great, homemade chips were very good. We would come back. Our waitress was fabulous she managed all the tables by herself.

When traveling, I much rather patronize this type of restaurant/bar than the cookie cutter chains that pop up at interstate exchanges but they aren't always easy to find. Food is good and basic and the service was great.

We came across this place while driving home. My son loves fire trucks and the place had a kids menu online so we decided to try it. The food was great. The staff was extra caring. Glad we found this place!!

We were shopping at the outlet mall and wanted lunch. Found this great little place. Great ambiance. Had the buffalo dip. LOVED IT! Had the ruben and my husband had the special-pastrami on rye. It was beyond good. We will be back!

Sorry, not sure they take reservations. But yes, it will be crowded on a Saturday night, most likely
