Through no fault of my own, I am not Hispanic----- but I love good menudo. My wife IS Hispanic, and she also loves good menudo. Occasionally, when we try a Mexican restaurant that we have not been to yet, the first thing we look for on the menu is----- you guessed it-------menudo. The menudo at Joe's Bakery is the best we've ever tasted! It is spicy rich (but not overly so) and not greasy. And when you ask for extra meat and pasole in addition to the traditional onions, jalapeno, cilantro, and lime----it's like a hearty stew! A great lunch or dinner meal in itself, but especially great as a morning-starter for breakfast. All the food at Joe's is very good, but it's the menudo that keeps US comming back! No wonder Joe's has been around for quite a while! To bad it took US so long to discover it!
Pros: The profits obviously go into the food, not so much the decor. That's O.K. with us.
Cons: Someimes a long wait at their busiest times, but well worth it.
