I had intended to visit today despite recent reviews I had read stating how friendly the staff was but their food was cold. I have been here many times before but it has been some time ago. If memory serves, Thursday is the ONLY day of the week they have brown gravy which I love with their hamburger steak. Today... More

We happened upon Joan's one Saturday morning and were pleasantly surprised. It's a local spot where they don't seem to meet a stranger. This place reminded me of breakfast at my grandparent's farm...a good ole bacon n eggs kind of place with the food served on old school plates and hot coffee served in a variety of mugs. We will...

Old town Dallas. Everybody knows everybody. Old school coffee, plates , etc. Very vintage. Cash only!! Huge portions. 2 pancakes more than enough.

Small town Mom & Pop family restaurant, great breakfast at a good price. Atmosphere could be stepped-up a notch; needs a coat of paint and new carpet.

While living in Pittsburgh it was easy to get spoiled by all of the great diners to choose from for breakfast, lunch, and late night. Joan's may not fit the bill for all three of those but it will do for those mornings when you just don't want to cook! You know it's a favorite local dive when the parking... More

We will try again but maybe... More

Located about a mile or two from either the Paulding Chamber, Tara Drummond Park or Rambo Nursery trailheads I like to stop in on a Saturday morning and get a post workout stack of pancakes and coffee. Don't go for the ambiance, the food is good and so is the service.

Food is fine and staff very personable. Décor is atrocious and should be discarded. I keep hoping they will redecorate, but loyal customers keep coming back so what they hey! Be sure to bring cash, they don't take cards of any sort.

Now I did check their score before I ate there and it was a 92. The food was very good but it really needs to be cleaned up. Tear out carpet put in tile. The service was very good too. We almost didn't stay but we were happy with the food. Probably will not go back just because of the... More

Joan started out at the Huddle House in Dallas and brought her friendliness along with her great southern cooking with her when she opened Joan's Family Restaurant! Great food ! Friendly atmosphere!
