I flew in from Hawai‘i on a red eye flight and needed to fuel up my body. Drove to Joe’s for early breakfast. The Acapulco omelette was fantastic. Chorizo, cheese, guacamole ... a new high for me.

A classic American diner as you would expect it to be. Air ventilation was very good, service very friendly. We had French toast and pancakes, very tasty. Cold beers available too. Recommended.

Great food, great staff, great location! Been here several times and have yet to be disappointed! Try the John Wayne Special... might have to wait in line, but well worth it!

classic old school diner. Omelette was good, house potatoes were awesome w mushrooms and onions. Good breakfast quick, although not as good as some others in South Bay

Eat At Joe's has been serving up great food made fresh and fast to the South Bay community since the 1960s! Our home-style cooking, big portions, and friendly service have made us America's favorite diner. The founder, Joe, worked all day every day to keep the little burger stand alive when he first took the reins in 1969. Since then, the Eat At Joe's team has been hard at work to continue his legacy of great food and great service for our incredible regulars and first-timers! Our dishes are made fresh from scratch, and fast too so you won't be hungry for long. We serve breakfast all day - including our famous John Wayne Special named for the Duke himself after he came to the counter one morning and asked Joe to cook up this now legendary plate! It features two eggs over medium with cheese, home fries, a tortilla, Spanish sauce, and sausage to start your day off right. We also have delicious burgers for lunch or dinner, crisp salads, and chef's specials like Fish 'N Chips and Grilled Pork Chops! Whatever you're in the mood for, come by Redondo Beach's legendary Eat At Joe's for great food, friendly service, and good times!
