Good food nice atmosphere a little pricey but equal to this type of restaurant in a small community worth the visit family locally owned owner gives back to the community and helps with the local school with sports and band concession programs

Joe's has a fun atmosphere with several dining options, including booths, tables, and private rooms. They also cater and you can get drive-thru. Lots of options, including pizza, sandwiches, salads, starters etc. Staff were super nice!

Love their pasta ala vodka! Limited menu - sandwiches, pasta and and pizza, but so yummy. This is an informal place where you order at the counter. The food will surprise and please you. Great place for families with kids, quick service and relaxing atmosphere.

It is VERY noisy. The food is nothing special. They put me on HOLD one night when I called to order from home AND LEFT ME THERE UNTIL I HUNG UP because they had closed by that time. No more. People who say it used to be better are right. Funny, it seems that the dad's retirement from his great... More

Atmosphere is nice and that's about it. Food is mediocre at best and way overpriced. Used to be a great place at the corner of 176 & 23. Not so much anymore.

I remember when Joe's Place was on the corner of 176 & 23, the food was excellent, inexpensive and came out fast! Now the food is good, not horrible but not excellent, the prices are high and takes a lot longer to get food out. That being said, their lasagna is worth the wait. It is always delicious and the...

Freinds took us here for a quick dinner. Tyros was very good with plenty of meat. The chopped was huge with leftovers to take home. Prices are reasonable for what you get. Great hot dogs.
