Joe’s Other Place

If you arrive at Joe’s Other Place on a weekend morning, expect a wait. But that’s OK. It’s worth it. The hosts and servers manage to be friendly and helpful despite being swamped for the breakfast rush. You can even get a cup of coffee to sip outside on the patio while you wait for a table.

The menu is full of options that range from classic American dishes to Mexican traditions and twists.

Under “Joe’s Favorites” you will find Chorizo Supreme: a platter of chorizo and eggs mixed with Ortega chilies, onions, and cheese. The large plate includes beans and a choice of hash browns or home fries. Corn or flour tortillas are served on the side. It’s a pleasantly spicy meal, rich and filling.

The Chile Verde Omelet is a fluffy mix of eggs enveloping tender chunks of pork cooked in green sauce.

Biscuits and gravy scream southern comfort with tender but firm biscuits covered in savory white sausage gravy. The menu warns that they are first come, first served. They’re that popular.

Whether as a full stack or a single, do try the pancakes, which are light, tender, and fluffy: pancake perfection.

There is no outdoor seating. All tables are inside. If you are a party of one or two, the server will give you the option of taking seats at the bar if they open up before a table. There are a few parking spots in the back of the restaurant; otherwise, grab a spot along the street.
