If you set out to find a BLT with more bacon on it than the one at Joe’s Inn, you’d have to look far and wide to find it.
“As a neighborhood restaurant since 1952, we pride ourselves that people can come in and eat large portions for well-valued prices,” says owner Matt McDonald. “That’s what’s kept us in business for nearly 70 years.” That and its most popular dish, baked spaghetti, all but guarantees leftovers.

As regulars can tell you, Joe’s Inn is a small space that makes it difficult to socially distance. Because of that, McDonald has reopened at 40% capacity with tables 6 feet apart and doesn’t expect that to change any time soon because getting to 50% would be unsafe for customers and staff. Luckily for fans of Joe’s Inn – and they are legion – curbside pickup makes it easy and safe to still have your baked spaghetti or BLT.
