Never thought of trying this place, and glad we did! I had the chicken citrus salad. Mixed greens with chicken with a champagne vinaigrette dressing. Very generous portion. My Husband had the BBQ chicken salad, also very good. I also had the mixed berry Margarita. Super good! Would definitely go back again. Lots of parking and outlet mall shopping.

One of my favorite places to enjoy a meal for up to four people. The pork chop, steak sandwich or my favorite the "Black Bart Burger" (I think that is the name). Watch out for the cheesecake, 3 grown men shared ONE for desert...it is so rich and delicious that I think I threw a clot. Coffee, uh just average.... More

Husband and I ate here multiple times during our local stay. Great atmosphere. Friendly staff. Food was delivered fresh and hot. Great steaks. Could use more side item options. But overall great restaurant!

The service was excellent and the food good. We have fined here multiple times, the only issue is the mountain Mashers are hit and miss. Sometimes they are good, other times they are too salty. Inconsistency.

We went to Tahoe Joe's based on the rating from others but were a bit disappointed in it overall. The steaks we all had were fair, even the ones that were noted as a specialty. My wife had a shrimp dish and it was nothing to write home about. The wait staff was good.

This is an ok place to bring your family but there is nothing to recommend it over an Applebees or a Chilis or a Chevys -- other than a change in menu or atmosphere. But it all seems interchangeable and uninteresting and high in calories, sodium, etc.

IF you look for places to eat in Vacaville you will find dozens of places like panera, panda express, pizza etc etc. basically slightly slower versions of fast food joints. All of them forgettable. A cut above these are places like tahoe joes, outback and a couple of others. WE chose Tahoe Joes, having never been there. It was a... More

Average steak house. Tired menu and only average quality. We've been coming here since they opened but the menus is tired, the quality of the meat is hit and miss with the flavor masked by butter and salt. Our experience with the staff has always berm good.

My sister, niece and I went here for lunch last week. While the place definitely has a "Tahoe" feel, there are a few basics that need work. First, if you're going to have a bunch of stuff on the walls, it should, at least be clean. Dust the stuff. Secondly, the restrooms should be clean. I wonder what kind of... More

This place is a great overall place to dine for both families, business lunches as well as the casual get-together. The only warning is that their steaks all have a "smoke" taste to them...so unless you like that...choose something else on the menu!
