Out of business! How many times do we have to tell you that this place has been closed and replaced by another business. It has been closed for over 2 1/2 years!

It was good, but could have been better. Just missing something. But that's all for not as they have closed the doors and something new is in it's place. Kind of hard to get to off the interstate.

Joey's Hilltop Café no longer exists as it has been converted to "The Original Fried Pie" and hamburgers.

If you want a good meal in Gainesville, this place is it. I do not know how many times I forget about the place when out in search of a decent meal. But this place and its owners really know what you want. They take pride in their small restaurant, and they always offer great service. The only really decent... More

I work in Gainesville, TX. A lot. When working there, I go out to eat. A little too much. When I do, more times than I should, I end up at Joey's. Be it lunch or dinner, I'm there.
