One of our favorite eat-outs in Red Deer. We are Vegans but we have found plenty of delicious dishes to choose from. We have a favorite place to sit in the restaurant - can you guess where that might be?

Thank you very much. We really strive to make sure all of our patrons can be accommodated. Id like to guess that your favorite spot is our booth by the window... only because that is my favorite spot. Thank you for the positive review, and we look forward to your next visit. Have an awesome day! More

I like spicy food, and Original Joe's has a great selection to choose from. My main problem is getting past the starters menu as they have too many good choices. Actually, just going in for appetizers would be a great plan...a little of this...a little of that...and maybe some of this too. Mussels, french onion soup, calamari and butter chicken... More

Hi 901KarenG. Thank you for taking the time to review us. I totally agree with you about all of our items in the start and share portion of the menu. Next time you come in if you are still hungry after the appetizer you should give the A.C.E. burger a go. It's one of my favorites. More

We've eaten here a couple of times when we've visited friends in Red Deer. There is many different dishes to choose from, and we've enjoyed all that we have tried. My husband didn't care for the beer they had suggested and so he ordered a different one and we were surprised because they didn't charge for the one he didn't... More

This place has great food, and pretty decent service. The only major downfall is location! there is hardly any parking and it is tough to find easily. Such a shame for a pretty good place. If you can find it go for lunch!

Hi Kathy. I am so pleased you enjoyed your meals and you will be returning. Next time you should try the Bruschetta for a starter. It's one of my favorites and so much better when you add bacon. More

Not a fan of this franchise but have to say this location "won me over". To start, a great and warm welcome greeted us upon arrival by a gentleman near the door. Our server was perfect and professional. I had a turkey Cobb salad which was undoubtedly the best I've had anywhere. The turkey actually tasted real not the processed... More

This place is a sure bet and pleases a mixed crowd! Really like the decor and styling of this OJs in Red Deer. Service was prompt and excellent, food came out quickly. Enjoyed the Chop salad with Salmon - did have a couple bones in the fish skewer but otherwise was a good meal. Others in our party enjoyed the... More
