BBQ – We have been eating at Joey's for the past 15 years. The service has been getting worst every time! Today, we arrived at approximately 3 P.M. Server said, "Sit where ever you want". We sat down. Waited 20 Minutes for our server to take our order after raising the flag. Gave our order. Waited another 25 Minutes, did not get garlic bread as usual, had to ask for it. To make things worst, 4 patrons that arrived after us were served before us. Finally we were served. Then the Manger or should I say the owner's wife, had a delay with the bill after clarifying some issues with our server.
Better atmosphere than food – I heard much about Joey's and opted to try the original location in Chino even though the Pomona location is closer to me. It was on a very rainy day and the outside pit was not in operation. The waitress told us that the meat is smoked early in the morning for 4 hours. I'm a home bbq'er and also taste bbq from all over the country when travelling.
Joey's was a dissapointment....at least on that day. Plain and simple...the ribs were very tender but tasted boiled. I couldn't pick out a hint of smoke flavor. The sides were a disappointment as well. The chicken was very tasty but again...dismal on the smoky flavor.
The main thing that kept a smile on our face during the entire experience, was our very cute waitress.
