This place serves classic Italian American food. The fried calamari is out of this world served with Mariana Sauce. Not an inexpensive place, but is damn well worth the price. And always order the warm buttercake.More

First time I went there for dinner since the remodel, it seemed overpriced and overrated. But the second time, I went for lunch and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of food. The atmosphere was pleasant, airy, and altogether civilized.More

I hadn't yet been to the "New" Original Joe's" at Westlake, so it seemed like the perfect occasion for a little celebration. The old Westlake Joe's that occupied the same quarters had stayed very 70's so to see the New Joe's in beautiful new accommodations...More

Somewhat depends on time of day. However, Joe's has two convenient private parking lots. Often, it's necessary to utilize the "upper" parking lot, accessed from Glenwood Drive. PS: Good thinking to "carpool".😊

Agreed. If you go, it's best when it first opens at 11am.

Description
After a two-year closure, iconic Daly City institution Joe’s of Westlake was revitalized and reintroduced into the community as Original Joe’s Westlake in February 2016. An anchor of Daly City from 1956 to 2014, Original Joe’s Westlake underwent an extensive two-year renovation, complete with a front-to-back interior remodel, including the kitchen and all dining spaces, and an exterior and landscaping overhaul. Following the Original Joe’s tradition, Westlake continues to prepare unpretentious, old-school Italian-American fare in an open kitchen for all to see. Elements throughout the restaurant, from interior design to menu offerings, are carefully crafted to reflect a past-meets-present hybrid of what Joe’s of Westlake used to be and what Original Joe’s Westlake is today.
