Seldom get to take my son out to eat but knowing he loves Alfredo I ask him if he wants to go to Joes and try theirs.

The waiter asks what we want, I talk about how I like the Seafood Combo with the Alfredo and my son and I order that.

I order a salad he asks what dressing, I tell him I really love the house tomato basil.

We even talk a bit about how good it is, for some reason he comes back with a salad with ranch I never eat ranch.

Then when the food is ready he brings one plate of the Alfredo, I ask where the other one is he says you mean you wanted two ?

I complained while paying out and even tipped the guy 3.00 dollars and decided to bring the wife and son back a couple days later.

We walk in and the guy I see when I come in is the guy I complained to he doesn't even acknowledge me.

We order the Alfredo as I have for years and it is covered with so much cracked black pepper it was almost to the point you wouldn't eat it.

I have been eating here for around 10 years, I spent over 110.00 in two visits in 4 days.

I will never go back again, I have eaten that dish dozens of times and it never has that kind of pepper on it.

Joe's may have been a good place at some time, but based on the dinner I had last time, they're asleep at the wheel. The fresh bread was the highlight. Downhill from there. The poor shrimp must have been stewing for hours in the greasy diavolo sauce. Lasagna ....meh. Calamari wasn't even Sysco Food Service best effort.
Italian is a hard sell in Conroe, but no need to fear competing with the incumbent!

Joe's is a small restaurant with quaint atmosphere, including a mural on the wall. There were four of us that all ordered something different, and all were pleased with the delicious food and generous portions.

Traveling to Houston tonight and pulled this restaurant. Great lasagna, better than mom ever made.

Wine suggestion was spot on. Reasonably priced...I can see the #1 rating
