Everyone said I had to go to Joe’s Farm Grill while in Arizona. It was featured on the Food Network; there’s always a huge line. I was very excited to visit this well-known, local favorite. I gotta say. The 1960s retro diner-style restaurant completely lived up to the hype.
Even in the middle of the week, there were tons of people from all walks of life, waiting eagerly to order something from the typical American fare at Joes Farm Grill. I started my meal with a sweet, creamy date shake topped with whipped cream. This would totally hit the spot on a hot, desert day.
Farm Salad $7.99
These brightly colored veggies were picked that day. Joes Farm Grill uses local, fresh ingredients for all their menu items. Sweet beets of both yellow and red. Tender corn kernels and ripe tomatoes. The veggie flavors were so bright and wonderful that the salad didn’t even need dressing. The contents of this salad vary from day to day, depending on what’s in season.
Onion Rings $4.99
I might have fallen in love with the onion rings. Imagine biting into a crispy, sweet onion then dipping it into ranch dressing. YUM! I will need to return to Arizona sooner than expected just for these onion rings. I even took some onion rings with me for the road. Yes, they were that good!
Farm Burger $8.49
Joe’s Farm Grill is also associated with Joe’s Real BBQ. Knowing that, I was hoping this burger would be as droolworthy as the burgers at its sister location, and it was! Flavorful, smoky meat and brightened up with fresh lettuce and a sweet red onion on a toasted bun. Incredibly delicious!
Believe it or not, the building where Joes Farm Grill now stands used to be the owners’ family home. The Johnston family relocated to “the country” and converted the house into a restaurant. Classic menu items done right, this restaurant scores high in my book.
