Everyone in our party of four had burgers prepared in a different manners. It was the unanimous opinion that the burgers were excellent. HELPFUL HINTS: They accept reservations. They will substitute a baked potato for fries at no additional cost.

If there would be a competition for the best restaurant inside shopping mall - Joe's would easily win it! Crowded, but very efficient place with traditional American dishes. The main reason for my visiting the mall! Advice - book your place in advance.

Great place to go with children because the sound level is so high that you don'f have to worry about the children disturbing other diners. They are very nice about substituting a small salad for the fries with a hamburger. The hamburgers are above average...More
