I think Joey's has great food. The actual restaurant is pretty small and can make you feel a little claustrophobic if there's a big crowd there, but I've never eaten anything there that I didn't like and I'm not even a big fam of bbq. My family has been going there for years. The prices are good and the staff is friendly too.

Been to Joeys a few times, ordered a variety of BBQ there. Maybe not the absolute best BBQ, but very good. Lots of food at a decent price. Sides dishes are very good. Even the veggie-skewer was very tasty.

On our last visit there, we ordered the Family Feast for a group of 3 adult guys. It actually was too much food for us, and that is saying a lot, considering how much we can eat. But we made a good run at it...

Pros: BBQ, beans, service, atmosphere

I don't know what the other reviewer was talking about. I absolutely LOVE Joey's in Upland. Every time I've gone there the BBQ melts in your mouth and the portions are just enough to get you full. I brought my extended family there for graduation and everyone said it was the best BBQ they'd ever had. It's a bit noisy and pricey though and if our group had been larger than 10 we wouldn't have fit.

I went to the Chino location several months ago and blamed the lack of flavor of the bbq on the rain since the smoker wasn't in operation. But after the visit to the Upland location, I've concluded that this is Joey's flavor they've settled on. The smoker outside only read 125 degrees. Didn't inquire. Ribs were very fatty. Barely a hint of smoke flavor. Almost tasted boiled again. Had to leave meat on the bone because tired of trying to tear it off. This is a big no no. Chicken was okay. Joey's needs to work on their bean recipe. Come on. Beans can taste so much better. Ambience and decor was good. Has a pleasant feel to the place with the home like setting which, in my opinion, makes the place so popular. Not the bbq.
I think the flag raising for service is truely a great idea.
