At Joe’s they serve it up like Mom used to…from scratch. Every day their cooks prepare your meals with the same fervour as Mom did. For their fish and chips, they dip Pacific halibut in our own Blonde lager beer batter, their Carolina pulled pork sandwiches are slow-cooked and mopped with a signature sauce. They hand-pack our burgers and charbroil your steaks and pork ribs to perfection. For more information, please visit http://www.originaljoes.ca.
The Original Joe's location we visited today was fairly decent. It is located in the heart of Kensington, Calgary. This area is known for boutique style shops and unique cafes/bakeries and decent restaurants. I really enjoyed the service provided by the staff team here. The bartender was very energetic and he was the first to greet us at the door. We sat down anywhere we liked because it was that flexible. The patio had already been filled with other guests at lunch time. We sat down in the back section of the restaurant that we anticipated to be darker. You would be surprised the amount of natural light that shines through the big uncovered windows. They did not need to turn on any indoor lighting to lighten the place. It was a nice atmosphere. They had a pool table, a video game and an ATM machine (very thoughtful!) Our server was super nice. She never stopped smiling at us. I like how she kept eye contact with us at all times. It was a very nice gesture and we felt respected as individuals and as valued guests. Their food was fair. It wasn't the best but it could do for a weekend lunch. The type of food served here is similar to trendy pub food. Their serving size was BIG though. I found myself packing the whole half of my plate. It was good. Food should not be wasted. I always pack left overs home. My partner and I enjoyed our lunch here and also went on to enjoy a nice walk in the neighborhood.
