My dad used to always take us here as a kid, so Joe's of Westlake holds fond memories for me. It's definitely old school, with most of the waitstaff is in their 80's (or looks it) dressed in their tuxes and white aprons. Most of those that frequent this place are about the same age. The food is also old school Italian American, with huge portions and not so high prices. I love their minestrone soup, sourdough bread, and salads, and they have decent pastas as well. Not the best place for steak though.
