Nice family place for dinner. Burgers and fries are good. Hand scooped ice cream cones. Great treat on a summer day.

The prices are right out of the 80's! You can eat well on a budget. Most sandwiches are $3-4, and they have an amazing variety to choose from.

Joe (owner) and Julie (daughter) know everyone who walks in the door. Its a great home-town burger and ice cream joint.

Nice little hidden gem. Food is really good, the place has a lot of history. The owner is normally there daily during the day. He says hello to everyone. It's definitely a great place to stop in & check out if you're feeling up for a good burger or hot dog.

The food is good and down home atmosphere adds to the diner's enjoyment. The staff have never met a stranger and make everyone seem like family. Wonderful slaw dogs!!

Joe's has been in business for something like 8 decades. Simple recipe: good food, great service, and reasonable prices. I've been multiple times and will be returning for more. Your typical list of quick foods - hot dogs, hamburgers, bird-dogs, hamburger steak, etc. Their coleslaw is absolutely outstanding and available by the half-gallon. They have scooped ice-cream as well, maybe... More

I used to come here as a little girl when my dad would bring my sister and me to share a banana split... That was 40 years ago! It has sentimental value for me, so I will always treasure it. I will say that it needs a little TLC, but all older places do. The service was good, and the... More
