Original Joe's (American/Italian), San Jose, CA

O.J.'s and The Hi-Life are two of San Jose's oldest and most famous restaurants. This restaurant in particular has been a symbol of the higher end of South Bay fare for generations. I've dined at this restaurant since I was a little kid, and my parents ate here long before that. Heck, even my grandparents have tried it out. This restaurant runs in the family! The steaks and cuts of meat, such as the Prime Rib, are perfectly done. The salads are killer too, and the ravioli is the star of the meal.

Speaking of the ravioli, I think the plate deserves some special attention. Each Italian dumpling is crafted out of the finest dough and stuffed with delicious ground beef. Then it is coated in a succulent and beautifully made tomato sauce and sold as a side or as an entree. At Joe's, you see it at every table. But, of course, the five star dining experience doesn't end there. The pluses of this restaurant go straight down to the beautiful decor and the top class waiting service. What more could you ask for?

Original Joe's is a fixture in the often skimpy and watered down San Jose restaurant scene. Here, the short list of star eateries is just that - short. But for fifty plus years, Joe's has been near the top of that coveted list, maintaining it's spot on the peak of the South Bay restaurant scene with tasteful decorations, stellar service staff and great food.

  1. Today Original Joe’s continues to serve its cuisine with a traditional San Francisco flair. American and Italian taste it is, that you want. Does the store has Italian home decor?
