This was my first visit to Joe's Cafe. Joe's is what I would call a true "hole-in-the-wall." It's not gourmet. It's not fancy. It's just good, southern comfort food. Joe took our order. He was funny and made us feel at home. We also got...More

From the moment you walk into Joe's, you sense and smell something wonderful. Joe is a charismatic, engaging guy with a huge smile. The food (especially the grits and the biscuits and gravy) are delicious!

Joe's is becoming an Orem institution that cannot be passed up. The biscuits and gravy and fantastic, the grits are divine, and the omelets are gut bustingly good, but eating with Joe makes the experience complete. Good food without Joe will always come in second...More
