This is a sports bar that offers some food options including chicken wings. We had lunch there and ordered wings and potato salad. Both were very good. There is a good selection of spicy "heat levels". The beer is cold and the atmosphere is fun....More

Joe Bob's has some of the best chicken in town, hands down! The prices are fairly reasonable and the service is pretty decent but nowhere near the best. There's a bar and a mixture of tables and booths. It's definetly not a a 5-star restaurant...More

The establishment is not 5 star dining. It's a bar, a pool table and some tables. Not really much atmosphere. The service is great, friendly people. The chicken is phenomenal. Crispy outside, tender juicy and wonderful inside. I don't get here as often as I'd...More
