It is always good! Italian ice has real fruit in it and is delicious. my favorite is the orange sorbet and vanilla swirl on a cone. reminds me of being a kid and getting 50/50 bars. :)

If you have ever been to Pennsylvania and had a Rita's Italian ice you will be right at home here in Anaheim at Joe's! Great authentic Italian ice with soft serve ice cream. I had the strawberry mango Joe latte and it is the real deal. Service was friendly and quick. Was not real busy at 7pm on a Wednesday... More

Do yourself a favor and get a Joe-Latti at this joint! The family found out new favorite desert here. Wish there was one in Australia! Service was outstanding also! If I could give more than 5 stars, I would!!

Quick friendly staff. Lots of options, great any time but really good on those HOT SoCal days. There is almost always a line but it is worth the wait.

Great place for a cool treat, but prepared to wait in a line because this place is always busy! It's a fun alternative to frozen yogurt!

I ate here twice in two days. I wasn't as impressed with the peanut butter sundae as I was with the pineapple Italian ice, but I wouldn't turn it down either. It was a unique treat while in the area.

It doesn't matter what time of day it is, there is always a ton of people in line there. So, my friends and I decided to stop one day, years ago. Loved it!! The food and the ice-cream were delicious. I have been at the new location and I still like it, but the prices have gone way up. I... More
