I love the hamburgers cooked your way in Nautica Joe's, but the Philly Cheesesteak can't be beat! And, they have the good crushed ice which I love with coke and their sweet potato fries, they also have wonderful salads. The waitress is nice and friendly and on top of her job. Please visit Nautica Joe's and enjoy the wonderful food... More

This is a very popular local spot in Darien next to a "Friendly Express" Minute Market, not far from the bridge over the Darien River. Nautica Joe's let other local places specialize in the fresh shrimp that abounds here. Instead, they specialize in great burgers, wraps, sandwiches, and salads. The menu features several large burgers. I had a cheddar burger... More

This place is easy to miss as it's inside the Friendly Express gas station on the main drag. Had a burger and fries. Burger was a solid half pound, cooked perfectly and tasty. Fries were seasoned crinkle cut and cooked just right (I like em crispy on the outside). They have several other sides including sweet potato fries. I'll be... More

We ate lunch at this little restaurant. I had the Greek salad topped with blackened mahi mahi. It was a generous portion and very good. My friend had the chicken salad, a very large portion. She said it was the best she had eaten in a long time. It was a great little lunch place.

It's only open for lunch - closes at 2:00 pm, but it's Sooo worth the stop. A family run business serving truly excellent food, and providing fantastic service. Mom and son do the cooking, while daughter serves. All the food is great, but the sweet potato fries are absolutely the best around

First of all; I didn't travel to get here. I could have jogged from my job. Great food; I mean, it's really really good! I love the orange fries(sweet tater fries). It's a sandwich shop with homemade ice cream. It's so good; I go here at least once a week with my husband. And, Carla; the waitress is the sweetest... More

I went with my mom and her husband and the waitress had their drinks on the table before they sat down. Great variety and the food is really tasty. The pasta salad side is excellent!
