Zman was good, really good. Onion rings not so much. Seasoned fries were also great. It's a quaint place with descent food, good portions and clean. Feels like a hole in the wall place. We had a quiet late lunch no idea how loud it gets.

We live in the area, so have eaten at all the Joe's locations--at first we were hesitant to try the newer location, wondering if the food would really be the same--don't worry, it is! We love the ribs, brisket, and the fries. Nothing beats those fries, if you eat them fresh--they just aren't as good if you get them to go. The vibe isn't the same as the original gas station location, but when I'm hungry for bbq, all I need is the great taste and the friendly service this Joe's always provides.

It looked like a long wait but in reality we only stood in line 20 minutes!
The BBQ was as “billed” for K C style....delicious.
We only go to Joe’s when we are looking for good, moderately priced, and quick BBQ. Even though it was Friday at 6 pm we still were able to eat and get to our next destination on time.
If you don’t mind standing in line and not having someone serve you, you’ll be fine!
I tried the Z-Man sandwich and is was yummy!

We loved the BBQ!!!! The ribs were great. The Bbq sauce is finger licking good. We had the rocket pig & smokie joe. We tried a sample meat. Ribs were delicious.
