The chicken fried steak was pounded very thin and bland with a flour coating that tasted just like flour. The gravy however.... Phenomenal!!! The gravy was the best... More

If you are a fan of chicken fried steak, and I am, then this would be the place to go. It was the size of the plate! It was extremely tasty as well, although I believe they could spice up the gravy some. Overall, the service was wonderful, the restaurant was clean, and we left with full tummies without an... More

Saw this online menu which the prices are VERY wrong. Needs updated. Walked down there from work for a quick bite, ordered ahead and picked it up. I was charged $2.10 more than what was posted online. Ok, it wasn't honored. Paid it graciously, bad customer service, noted. Then I was charged an extra $.25 pick up fee! Seriously! Well,... More

When I first drove up to Josey's I told my sister to just drive away. It looked like a dive. She reminded me that it did get 41/2 stars on Yelp, so I agreed to go in. The place was very small but very clean. The staff were friendly and very attentive. The place was full and busy. We did... More

The worst food in any town I've been in. Restaurant was dirty and the owner talked with his mouth full, which was all the time.

This was our first restaurant in Salem during our stay. I went specifically for the chicken fried steak breakfast. I like that it was fried on the grill and the gravy was good. Not fantastic, but good. My wife had the hash which was also good. It was made from scratch and had a crunchy bacon in and crisp potatoes.

The food is good, the service is spot-on, the location is easy to get to. They have a jr.-sr light breakfast and lunch menu, prices really reasonable. Basic breakfast fare, served by really great people. If it says anything, we go at least once a month!

Large pockets of the US do not know chicken fried steak...even fewer people know good chicken fried steak...Josey's knows great chicken fried steak...made fresh...light coating of flour-not the heavy breading like many places...'pan fried' on the flat top-not deep fried...my chicken fried steak literally covered 60% of my dinner plate and was still hanging over the edge.
