    Old school Italian it was with California prices to boot. Coming back here is almost a certainly for me, as the pictures and local fanfare are enough to christen the allure of Original Joes. I'll be sure to arrive before midnight this time around.

    One of the few places you can go to get something to eat after midnight that is not fast food and decent (better than Denny's).

    Very popular place on a Saturday night. Nice to have a lounge with tv's & bar to wait in, instead of just standing by the door. Staff professionally dressed (in coats & ties) & courteous. Portions were pretty good, but prices for Italian food were a smidgen high, but competitive.

    Old School Italian Joint It is old school. Very comfortable surroundings. I ate at the bar and had good service, however the bar tender was not the best at menu knowledge. Ordered the antipasta app. and meat and mushroom sauce on spag. with a meatball. Only 1 (one) button mushroom was in the sauce! Sauce was otherwise average, and the pasta was cooked al dente which was great. The meatball was sizable, lean and tender, but lacked a crispy texture on the outside which would have made it better. I would try the place again, but maybe the veal would be a better choice. Bartender did try and serve the main dish before the appetizer, but realized then he switched them around.............

    Great food. Great service. Over priced and takes forever to get seated. 2 out of 4. Unless you're going on a Monday at 11am don't expect to get seated for at least 30 minutes.
