Generally I like the food here but the prices have climbed to a point where it's getting hard to justify the price.

This is one of the best BBQ restaurants in town. Very pleasant and professional staff. Food is delicious.

I love Joey's. The food is always good, and I have never had a bad experience. It just makes me sad that I do not live close by anymore to be able to just pick it up for dinner on a random night.

Joey's is a great restaurant but they are no longer at this location. It has been replaced by the Rookery which is also a great bar-restaurant. But don't come here looking for Joey's. Do go to their locations in Upland and Chino.

Will never step foot in this dump again! I'm an avid BBQ lover and this place is far from BBQ. I never thought I would say this but this was the first time my party and I didn't finish our BBQ. We had their BBQ...More

The brisket is to die for!! Order it you won't be disappointed. Beef ribs are delectible (meat falls off bone). Everything I've tried there is superb.
