I've been going to Joe's for many years. The food is reasonably priced and I am never disappointed. There are about three dishes I always choose from. The Artichoke Chicken is amazing. The Skirt Steak with blue cheese and grilled

When you start your day at Joe's, you can count on it being a great day. My fav: Huevos Rancheros with Chorizo and the Ritchie's Special always pleases.

I was hungry after I visited The Beys Garden spa next door for a massage (also excellent!!!), and loved the appeal of Joe's.\r

It's a true diner- servers who DONT have headshots, counter seating, and meals under 10$. I found it so

Pros: Cheap and delicious

Cons: No parking, it gets BUSY

For some reason this place is really well known. Maybe it's for it's long-standing business? The food is just okay - it's a diner- but really expensive for what you get. The coffee is too weak for this venice crowd. The interior and exterior underwent a face lift recently so I expected better plates as well but that was not the case.

The staff is nice but rather un-attentive. Maybe it's the location-- Main street is very posh but I thought diners were a place where you could avoid all of that hoidy-toidy and order a nice scramble at a reasonable price? Silly me.

This place looks like a classic diner so you'll be surprised to find some more refined options on the menu. I love their chicken dishes and their Mexican options, and my husband always get the steak with blue cheese and peppercorns, it's

I've been eating lunch here for years...the service is great and the menu provides many options. Expect to pay over $12-15 for lunch, even for a basic salad or sandwich. It's a bit greasy, but there are a few healthier choices, too. All in

The booth seats are on the hard side, and it's a little expensive for a diner, but the food is great. I've been more than once, and have always been happy with the meal. The "make your own" omelet option is a nice one, and the pancakes are

Great food, great location, great service; what more could you ask for? It is great to stop in for a grilled cheese on Rye and fries or before a trip to the Sunday market for some hotcakes!

Editorial from

We harbor no illusions that Joe's is anything but a diner---but we think it is a very good one, and it seems that much of the neighborhood agrees. People greet one another by name here and order "the usual." The crowd is conspicuously…
