“Yuk (seriously)!”
Reviewed 4 April 2013

My husband and I hadn't been to Joe Macs before and after our experience we will never be back. The service was terrible and I can honestly say the food is the worst we've tasted in years. The place wasn't busy but we had to wait almost an hour for the food to arrive, the waitress was more interested in sitting up at the bar eating her own lunch than looking after customers. We were about to call it a day and leave when suddenly the 'food' appeared. I had ordered roast beef which was supposed to be a special of the day, it was barely edible, thin slices of fatty meat accompanied by what I think was cauliflower but couldn't be sure because it was a greyish pinkish mush, absolutely unedible and disgusting and everything was stone cold. My husbands burger was cold and burnt, the chips had more eyes than a spider and the plate was covered in the burnt black bits than had fallen off the burger ..well, we think that's what they were, who knows? The waitress did apologise (sort of) for the food taking so long, apparently she didn't realise the 'chef' had to make the burger....really?? do they normally fall out of the sky?? Truly terrible service and food !
