Steak was cooked perfect, toast was buttery and warm to dip the yolky eggs in. Wife had the bacon cheese burger....now....this place when they say bacon on their burger...they mean it and they are liek 1/2 pound burgers. We will... More

From the moment you walk into Joe's, you sense and smell something wonderful. Joe is a charismatic, engaging guy with a huge smile. The food (especially the grits and the biscuits and gravy) are delicious!

Biscuits and gravy a must, grits to die for, the best place to fill up and start your day. Joe is, well, the best entertainment a cafe could offer.

Joe's is becoming an Orem institution that cannot be passed up. The biscuits and gravy and fantastic, the grits are divine, and the omelets are gut bustingly good, but eating with Joe makes the experience complete. Good food without Joe will always come in second place.

Ate here and met Joe the first time 5 years ago and it was incredible. Home away from home! Well 5 years later made it back to the area and still as incredible as it was the first time. This man knows how to cook! Burgers are great, breakfast is great and don't miss his grits!! Can't go wrong here... More

Joe and his team are fantastic. Super nice, full of energy, really makes you feel welcomed. Sadly, the food is not as great as their energy. A Group of us went for lunch, and left somewhat disappointed. I had a burger with a potato salad which was ok, nothing really special, just basically a frozen patty type. A colleague had... More

I never would have even considered eating at Joe's. But an old buddy said I had to try it and refused for me to say no. So, reluctantly, I went. Joe's Cafe is a little hole-in-the wall dive. From initial impressions, I was not impressed. And then Joe greeted us. The biggest smile and positive personality I think you will... More
