We went with our cousins to Arizona

The State of Arizona comprises the extreme south-western portion of the United States. It is bounded on the north by Utah, on the east by New Mexico, on the south by Mexico, and on the west by California and Nevada.

Joe's in after a visit to their house in the east valley. They recommended to us the restaurant, the table, and the dish that we had to order. I'm not a huge fried chicken (or in this case, Broasted, which is a type of pressure fryer), but it can be great when it's done right. I thought the food would be better, but I left the restaurant feeling like I never wanted to eat chicken again.

And it wasn't that it was that terribly bad. It was a little undercooked and tough for my taste, though as far as being "safe", it was cooked throughout. The service was only mediocre, and substitutions were a big no-no (they wouldn't give me a salad for cole slaw, even though I offered to pay the difference).

I can say one good thing about it. After you've made it through your meal, you can sit back and enjoy the live entertainment. Everything from country songs to instrumentals and Native American wooden flute music came out of a single performer. Listening to some of that music possibly made the whole evening worthwhile.

Arizona Joe's is located at 417 S. Winchester Rd. in Apache Junction.
