Great local hangout.. 12/2/2010

You're living in the town where people don't eat, and you want comfort food - what do you do? Head to Joe's. This is good American food, and they stay open late, I think dinner 'ends' around 10pm and the 'appetizers' 11pm, but they're always pouring those strong drinks at the bar. I love that the wait staff are wearing shirt and tie, and look like they might be the original staff from 1928. You can eat an absurdity for $30 there - and I don't advise it. We took home at least the next days' lunch and dinner after being indecisive about appetizers, salads and entrees. I can recommend the pretty much all the meats, Ive had them all and have always been happy. Sorry, I can't finish this review, I have to go and get the Omaha right now. more

Breakfast sandwich was delicious. 11/30/2010

The California avocados made this sandwich, one crispy sourdough. Egg cooked just right- fried with a bit of runny yolk still! And their homemade salsa was very good. My in laws got the huervos Mexican which was big enough to share and include homemade tortillas. My wife had the Benedict, which had great hollandaise sauce. She commented it was one of the best sauces she's ever had in an eggs bene, which is quite a compliment from a woman who has eggs bene any chance she can get. more

Suprisingly good Southern food 4/24/2009

Didn't know what to expect and just went in for dinner. Had a drink and the Special of the night... Ham Hocks! Wow! Being from Louisiana originally, it needed some added kick (i.e. Tabasco), but the ham and beans were EXCELLENT! Pros: good drinks Cons: can't think of any more

Meet At Joe's 5/4/2006

Though we saw a nostalgic looking sign reading Joes Cafe from our hotel across State Street, we werent compelled to eat there until after our Santa Barbara Trolley Tour. Once the guide noted that Joes was the oldest eatery in Santa Barbara, we were sold. Anyplace that stays in business for almost 80 years has to be doing something right And they are. Old school bar and dining booths in dark woods and old school menu filled with dark meats. Prime rib, Tri-Tip, French Dip and one of the many specials on Thursdays -- Hamhocks and Beans. The best diner dish ever! Large portions, good value and tasty food. Though the old-timers received more service attention and respect than we did, the atmosphere of history made up for that slight. The place does have character and we can hardly wait to return to try their chili dishes. Pros: Historical Eatery, Nostalgic Atmosphere, Hearty Foods Cons: Uninviting Facade more
