Joe’s used to be great BBQ but now it is average. The pulled pork sandwich the bun was saturated in grease which you could squeeze grease out. The bake potatoes were over done and hard. Not the BBQ it used to be.

They have good bbq. It's an Alvin tradition. They have a seafood buffet on fridays. It's good as well. You need to go and try it. Potatoe salad is like mom would make other sides ar good as well. Quick lunch or relaxing dinner.
