Joe's take a "Mom and Pop" shop to a new level. You are immediately welcomed and made to feel like you are the only person there. The food is excellent and definitely "Homemade". Would definitely come back when back in town.

My boyfriend, his brother, and I stopped here on the way from the Smoky’s, back to Tampa. We all enjoyed a sandwich, and soup, and of course the lemon cheesecake! Definitely recommend if you’re passing through! Always support small businesses!

We were traveling from Raleigh, NC and was told we must try this place. Everything we ordered was excellent. The chicken corn chowder was great. The wait staff was attentive and made sure we were satisfied. Will definitely return next time we are in town....More

Following the recommendation of a friend we stopped in for a late lunch. The staff treated you like an old friend and indicated they were happy you had stopped. The food was delicious; and definitely homemade. We will return, and bring our friends.

Based on TripAdvisor, we went to Joe's for lunch. The food was good and so was the service. Service was very friendly. We had soup and sandwiches. We sat inside which was cramped but ok. They were pretty busy. I would return.
