Arizona Joe's (Apache Junction)
May 9, 2005
by Nick Coons
We went with our cousins to Arizona
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.
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.
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).
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.
