This place is amazingly womderful, yes, I've only had their Hot Roast beef sandwhich but it is by far on the top of the list. It's not really a buffet "buffet" more like when you're ordering it's similar to a buffet line. Like how it was in movies that have school lunch scenes and you're placing your order in formation....

I've been going to Joe's Buffet since 1970. I remember my mom complaining about the high cost -- 99 cents! The roast beef sandwich is still amazing. The portion of beef is enough for three sandwiches. It's great with a side of homemade potato salad. Time to go back!

The place usually has rather a line, because their sandwiches are so good. You watch them slice the meat right in front of you. The bread is gods, and they dip the beef in juices. I'm told their other sandwiches are tasty, but I've stuck with ordering the beef for fifty years.

This is one spot I've gone to for decades. The roast beef sandwiches are excellent. In fact, they are so good I've never tried anything else!

Joe is very, and I mean "very" generous with the meat on his sandwiches. They are really fresh and the taste is super yummy!

This is by far the best Pastrami Sandwich I've ever had! The pastrami is tasty and high quality. Does not have all the fat you typically find in a sandwich like this. The staff is very friendly, and will give you a taste of things to help you decide. I love the potato chunks as a side; the seasoning on... More
