Original Joe's is part of a restaurant chain. I'd never heard of them before but they've opened in Abbotsford. We were looking for somewhere close to home where we could have a decent meal for a reasonable price. Original Joe's fit the bill perfectly. Abbotsford has a lack of decent restaurants so it was nice to discover OJ's.
They have about 6 or 7 TV's showing different sports programs so if you're looking for a quiet evening this is not the spot. The menu ranges from pizza to hamburgers, pasta and sandwiches to a few entrees such as fish and chips and spareribs. They had a special on pizza for $10.00 when we were there. I opted for the pizza and my husband had the half rack of ribs. The pizza was very good. The toppings were generous and the crust was not heavy and doughy. The ribs came with a choice of 2 sides and were also very good. Wine prices are also reasonable. The total bill for pizza, 1/2 rack of spareribs and 1/2 litre of wine with tip was $55.00. Fair value for the quality of food.
The service was decent. Our server was pleasant enough but she made a huge mistake. After we finished eating we looked at the dessert menu and decided that we would like to have dessert. We had not seen our waitress for awhile and my husband finally caught her eye. She did not come to the table to see what we wanted. My husband said that if she bought the bill we would just skip dessert and leave. Sure enough rather than asking if we wanted anything else she just presented the bill, hence no dessert for us, less money for the restaurant and less of a tip for our server.
It was a good evening out however and I would certainly recommend OJ's. I believe they have half off wine prices on Wednesday or Thursday.
