We've been eating here about once a month for years. We love the pulled pork sandwiches and always have extra sauce. My son's say the fries are "The Bomb" and I love the coleslaw.

Joe's was a nice surprise..... which I found in the back of the Macy's parking lot. I had to try it having tired of the "California Style" restaurants everywhere. The brisket and pulled pork are excellent and my dining partners seem to enjoy the ribs. A long list of sides from which to choose and a good selection of beers... More
