Joe’s Real BBQ – Popular Gilbert Restaurant

Best of Phoenix Eating and Unique AtmosphereJoe's Front Entrance

Where do you go to find a unique local restarant that serves award winning BBQ?  Head south on Gilbert Rd. to Joe’s Real BBQ in the historic section of Gilbert.  Joe’s opened for business in January 1998 and has been satisfying cravings for barbeque brisket, pulled pork, pit ham, pork ribs, chicken and turkey breast ever since.  The food is award winning and you’ll also appreciate the old-style atmosphere that is one of a kind.  Where else will you find a  1948 John Deere tractor in the middle of the dining area?  The New Times awarded Joe’s the Best of Phoenix for Old-Fashioned Charm. If you are into sauces, you  have your choice of spicy, or “we dare you” hot which uses habanero peppers to turn up the heat.   My favorite lunch time meal is the BBQ sampler with over 3/4 lb. of ribs, chicken, pork and beef.  Most plates are in the $8 – $12 range.  Joe’s also features a comfortable and large outdoor dining area.
