“microwave anyone”
Reviewed 9 February 2013

nothing was fresh, all tasted frozen and luke warm, it seemed they put it in a microwave and threw a singles cheese on top and slapped it on the table, also seating is terrible, very small space

“Fascinating Little Spot!”
Reviewed 26 November 2012

It seems at first that you've made a mistake and walked into a place you shouldn't be. Then you realize there are tables and staff, and you start to feel more comfortable. It's mom and pop to be sure, but the food is good, prices reasonable, and overall experience well worth the trip. I'd say try it out!

“Pasty Pasty”
Reviewed 27 July 2012

If you enjoy a pasty now and then, you will want to look for this spot in Butte. It's not a fancy looking place, but what the restaurant lacks in curb appeal, it makes up for in quality and taste. Servers are very friendly and accomodating, and while the Pasty is King at Joe's, the menu does offer other options such as burgers and other sandwhiches. However, I would recommend that you go for the pasties. The crust is flaky, edges are crisp, and the filling is meat without the usual fillers that you may find elsewhere. They also offer the usual soft drinks or your choice of various beers. Joe's Pasty Shop is relatively inexpensive and well worth looking for. If you order the pasty, be sure and order the one with gravy. I don't think you will be disappointed or leave hungry.

“Pastry with a flourish”
Reviewed 23 July 2012

First time having a pasty and really enjoyed it. More food than anyone should be allowed to eat. Had mine with chili and it was delicious.

“Best for pasties”
Reviewed 25 May 2012

As a Butte local I recommend Joe's Pasty Shop.If you have never had a pasty and are travelling through Butte, make this your food stop. Eat in or take on the road (unless you want gravy), you can't go wrong with a Joe's Pasty. A bit off the interstate on Harrison Ave North exit, but well worth the trip into town.
