I was spending the night at a motel on Highway 66 and realized the Josephs was right across the street. I had totally forgotten about the restaurant. I was there last in 1969 when I was driving from my home in southern California to college in Oklahoma. It had not changed a bit and the food was still great.

Good place for groups and food was good. Lots of Mexican options, pizza and some sandwiches. Went with an experienced group that goes there every time they are in town diving. Seems well liked by most.

Joseph's Bar was a very unique dining experience. When we walked in the door we were taken back to 1935 very vintage and we were looking for the bar which we found in the back. Eloise, our bartender, greeted us and We sat down and I immediately felt like a kid at a soda fountain bar with my head barely... More

Traveling through the area we had lunch here. Service was good, food was good, very nice gift shop . I had chicken quesadilla my husband had fajitas. We both liked the food & would return. Good ample parking where even rv could get in & out easily.

Not much to choose from when it comes to restaurants, but Joseph's is worth seeing. Ok food with interesting memorabilia decorating the wall.

Stopped in on vacation. Food was good. Service was below average. Watch the sneaky 20% gratuity forced on your bill and then they still add the additional line for a tip after running your card.

The Carne Avocada had a wonderful Chipotle smokey favor, the Margaritas are fabulous. A wonderful restaurant in a town with a very old history on Route 66.

We had to stop and eat in Santa Rosa. We chose this place at random. Food was good enough for the prices. We weren't hungry enough for dessert which looked good. I had the Santa fe enchiladas and requested light cheese. The sauces were good, and chicken filing was plentiful and juicy. My husband ordered chicken fried steak and was... More

Service was lacking, although the two waitresses we saw were working hard. We didn't get all of what we ordered, but we were never charged for what didn't come. The food was a bit hit and miss also. There is a nice little souvenir shop in the restaurant.

Thank pennyj316
