Hey Joe, Waddya Know?-

joe's grill

On a sunny Saturday afternoon, my wife and I made the short drive to Richmond, TX to visit my brother and his family. He had mentioned that there was a pretty good burger near his house so we decided to give it a try. So on Crabb River Rd is a shopping center and in that shopping center is Joe’s grill. Amongst a video game store, a Chinese restaurant, and fast food pizza, Joe’s Grill stands out. We made our way in and were greeted by a guy in a do-rag who I think was Joe. He seemed pretty friendly. He was from San Francisco and talked to my sister in law about living on the west coast while we decided what to order. The menu at Joe’s Grill is pretty impressive. There was many sandwich, salad, and burger options to choose from. We were there, however, for Burger Tyme.

Joe-licious and Nutricious

Joe's Grill

I place my order for a regular cheeseburger with everything on it, a side of fries and a chocolate shake.  After about 10 minutes our orders were brought out to us. The spread was pretty basic and was a decent amount of food. The burger was fresh. That’s the best word I could use to describe it. The patty was thin but filled out the entire bun. The veggies were fresh and crisp. The bun itself was a plain white hamburger bun but it was very soft and held the burger together well. Overall, no one item in the burger stood out as really good but together they made for a pretty good burger. The fries were pretty crisp which is how I like them. The milkshake was a little on the icy side. It most likely was soft serve ice cream that they blend Hershey’s syrup and milk into. It wasn’t bad but it was not the best milkshake either.

The Wrap it Up-

Joe’s Grill was a pleasant surprise down in Richmond,TX. While I would have to say the burger is slightly above average, the variety on the menu indicated to me that there is more than just good burgers at this place. What I really liked about Joe’s Grill was how friendly “Joe” was. While we waited I noticed that a lot of the people who were coming in and placing orders or picking up orders knew the guy in the do-rag ( I think I even heard them calling him Joe). He was very friendly with all of them and even helped an old man who was taking his granddaughter to lunch to his chair. I was really impressed that he knew many of his customers well enough to joke with them, and was extra helpful to the old man.

    I don’t like Joes’ thin patty. As you can tell from me pictue above, I like a beefy burger.

    This burger was advertised as a half pound …

    I remember this burger being really messy. Also, Joe was stingy with the ketchup. You can only get 1 tiny cup at a time. Joe needs to lighten up.

    It’s the best burger in Richmond, but Richmond is small.

    I had the Mushroom an Swiss burger which was pretty doggone good. An the owner was super friendly an made the wait go by swiftly with friendly chat. All in all I’d recommend the place if you’re the adventurous type an aren’t going for the plain jane regular burger.

    Great burger, excellent fries. Best burger outside of downtown period.

    I went to Joe’s to try out their notorious burger. It took me about 30 minutes to get there. When I got their I saw a couple; 1 eating a burger and the other with a grilled chicken sandwich. While the burger looked so juicy and very appealing, the chicken sandwich got my attention. Long story short, I have never had a chicken sandwich like the one I had today. It was juicy, flavorful, and stack just right. His special sauce closed the deal. This with out a doubt is my new spot for lunch. Incredible.

    For a local hole-in-the-wall, Joe’s is awesome! Our family doesn’t eat out much (maybe once a month), and when we do Joe’s is usually one of our top choices. They have the BEST sourdough buns!

    On a sad note, Joe unexpectedly passed away at the beginning of April 2012. His legacy still lives on, as his friend Daniel is now managing the restaurant. Please still come by and grab a good burger or chicken sandwich. I’ll keep going as long as Daniel keeps it open.
