Always yummy cheesesteaks since forever! Not fancy, but reliable & satisfying food. A local landmark for good reason!

Just can't get enough of Joe's Steak Shop. Always good service. Try to get there when its slow to have a table inside. Summer no problem eat outside. Have to have my cheese steak with halapino peppers. Yummy

Best cheese steaks any where! Joe's steak sauce is what makes them the best. I don't like the sauce that everyone else uses. Most times you can always get a chance to sit down and eat. They have tables outside for summer time.

I have been going to Joe's since I was in my early teens. Fantastic steak sauce. Try a hot cheese steak with pierogies. Tough to beat. "Steaks any fresher would bite you back".

Favorite place for cheesesteaks for many years. Plenty of steak meat in sandwich. You may also buy a steak kit with rolls, steak meat and sauce to make your own at home

Joe's has fantastic steak sandwiches and fries. Every Tuesday is a car rally with hundreds of autos on display.

Don't know what all the fuss is about. Nothing special here! Place is in need of updating. Very small inside. Food is typical and just very average. Won't be back.
