Orem >Joes Cafe
Just walking in the door is an experience.
Cool, easy-going atmosphere. Joe himself is an awesome guy, fast becomes your friend, and takes good care of you. He won't feed you anything he wouldn't eat. Has a wall full of pictures of happy customers, a tradition that started on opening day.
Food is amazing. Being from the north, I didn't have a huge taste for grits, but his converted me. The burgers are amazing, and the Joe's Ultimate Burger is unrivaled by anything else. If thats to much for you to tackle, the tuna melt is full of flavor, but lighter on the stomach, as are a few other sandwiches on the menu. Breakfast is as it should be, filling and full of energy for the day, but also makes a good lunch. Biscuits and gravy are unlike anything I've ever tasted before. Joe's Ultimate Omlet kicked my butt the one time I tried it. Pancakes are huge, soft and buttery. Only time I'll ever go to Denny's or IHOP now is if Joe's is closed.
Come prepared to eat, but pace yourself, or you'll know what its like to have too much of a good thing. Expect leftovers if you're not a big eater. Great value.
Best Gravy, Grits and everything else. Well, I wasn't prepared to talk to Joe but what a cook. After bringing me 2 samples of his grits and gravy, I was ready to cancel my Joe's burger to get breakfast. WOW, I have never tasted gravy like that. This place wreaks of perfection and of great flavors. the burger showed up and looked, smelled, and tasted fabulous. I have added this to my once a week places to eat.
