We had the dinner for two with railroad Camp shrimp , steaks, baked potatoes, green beans, and salad. The food was excellent ! We were too full for the cheesecake so we took it home and enjoyed it later. This place has a neat cabin-like atmosphere. We will definitely be back.

Great dinner. I had barbecue chicken grilled just right. Tender and juicy. Red mashed potatoes and seasoned green beans. My husband had the sirloin with the peppercorn sauce and same sides. We've ordered this the last 2 times we went to Tahoe Joes. Very good!

The filet was delicious and cooked exactly as ordered. The salad was fresh and I really like their sourdough bread. However, the real reason to visit here is their CHEESECAKE! It's the best I've ever had and if I didn't live 2000 miles away I would probably OD on this stuff. I've had plenty of cheesecake from that "other place"... More

I usually visit the location on Shaw which was the very first store to open under this name but sadly they are now closed so I visited this location. Great service and very good food. I'll make sure I'll go back.

First, I didn't know this former independently-owned restaurant was now part of a chain of TJ's owned and manage by Ovations, Inc., which is the company who also own the Hometown Buffet chain. I had read about the original TJ's on Shaw Ave. abruptly closing as Ovations has filed bankruptcy and thought I'd have my birithday dinner at what is... More

Never been to this chain before, but will again, in fact we found another in Vacaville Cal, just great food. The waiter here in Fresno was the best, nothing was to much trouble I believe his name is Mathew, cheers mate. In point of fact all the staff were great. If like me you haven't been to this restaurant give... More

We went midweek so it wouldn't be too crowded. We were celebrating milestone birthday. Our service at first was prompt, then as the night went on, slower and slower. Waiting almost a half hour just for a refill was a bit ridiculous! Especially when we were steps from th kitchen. Everyone's meal came out!! and I was still waiting, and... More

Lunch is under-rated. So often we only go out to dinner. Lunch is actually a better value; and why not take advantage of vacation time to enjoy lunch for a change! My wife had the shrimp salad (w/ the "Railroad Camp Shrimp"); and I had the Joe's Steak (16 oz.), which was very tender and flavorful. Two glasses of wine... More

By giving Tahoe Joes a 5 star review, I'm not saying it's better than Ruth Cris or Flemmings, what I'm saying is that for the money, this is the best place to eat ANY steak. Judging from the crowd that was there starting at 4pm, I'm not the only one who thinks this. We started our meal with my new... More
