I have been several times. The food has been very good each time. I like the teriyaki tips, and I have also had the boneless buffalo wings they are excellent too. It can be quite busy especially on Friday or Saturday

Nothing like it around. Great food at a great price. Only place we have found to eat in the area which is not a chain or microwaved frozen food.

We went to Joseph's for the first time tonight, and had an overall excellent experience! Our waiter, Daniel, was extremely warm and personable. The food was delicious and the building is lovely. I highly recommend this restaurant!

I do not eat meat, so I could not answer this question for you. My family are meat eaters, however they have not had the pork, they get a steak. Wish I could be of more help.

We are a slightly upscale Steakhouse that also serves a nice variety of Seafood as well as Baby Back Ribs. Our Vegetarian selection is sure to please the most delicate of pallets.
