Great "welcome". How nice to come into a restaurant and be welcomed, made to feel special and observe that everyone is treated the same way by Greg. The staff, the customers, his old and new friends.........
Not your Above Average Joes. I had a problem with this place. Dad and I came here with some friends and well, we were appalled by the service. One of the staff was chewing gum, while taking orders from patrons. Not good. The food was ok, but thats all that saved this place from getting one star. I like the location, being on US 6, but no one should have to suffer through the lazy service.
With a lengthy menu of dependable comfort food and inventive pizzas, there's nothing average about this popular area chain..
Each Joe's location handles a steady flow of hungry families and casual couples tired of national chains' bland cuisine and soulless atmospheres. While most nights bring standing-room crowds, waiting for a table can be avoided by sitting at the bar (the better to sample from a surprisingly varied, yet affordable, wine list). Servers, while kept in constant motion by the hungry masses, manage to keep baskets of spongy focaccia filled.
While most diners come for the eclectic, stone hearth oven-baked pizzas (shrimp and artichoke, spicy "voodoo" chicken), it's a mistake to ignore the rest of the varied menu. Start with a freshly-made cobb salad; full of grilled chicken, applewood-smoked bacon, and avocado, the heaping plate is large enough for three diners. Entrees consist of casual (savory Black Angus meatloaf) and contemporary (Mediterranean salmon with balsamic tomato-caper relish) options. Mammoth desserts include kid-approved favorites like strawberry shortcake.
We walked in and we were told it would be 45 minutes. AN HOUR AND A HALF later we were seated. More disturbing was the fact everyone who was seated came in after us! Apparently, they have an unpublished "CALL AHEAD" program to put your name on the "waiting to be be seated list" (at least that's what they told us). I told them that it was no excuse for givng us an estimate that was DEAD WRONG on how long it would take to be seated (unlike other comment, they do not take reservations).
Food was good.
Always above average. Whether going there personally or asking my wife to bring home a take out item, Joe's always pleases...Joe's has sought to put together the right combination not only in New Bedford but in all of its locations...As an observer of business opportunities in the greater New Bedford area, Joe's siezed the moment and has never looked back...watch them closely as they may go public any time soon...and, buy as much stock as you can when the ipo hits the streets...not your average joe's will = above average earnings....my money will be on the table...
