Joe’s Easy Diner Restaurant Review
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to eat at a retro-American style diner?
I recently visited a Joe’s Easy Diner branch in the Cape Town CBD and it felt like I had stepped right into a scene from Grease.
Joe’s Easy Diner franchise models its restaurants to look and feel like a 60’s retro-American style diner. The Cape Town CBD franchise that I visited is great. I really appreciated the lengths they went through to make the whole restaurant ooze the 60’s.
It felt like I had stepped into a time machine and expected Elvis to step through the door.
As you can see below the décor is decked in everything you’d expect for a retro-American diner. I especially loved the red juke box that only played 60’s music.
My partner in crime, Sune van Heerden, made a great point that we can’t visit an American style diner and not order a milkshake & burger.
Who can argue with that logic?
I chose the Peanut Butter Shake (R24.90) and she ordered the Oreo Shake (R32.90). Both of us loved the milkshakes. They weren’t too thick and if I wasn’t trying to lose weight I would have ordered a jug.
Next up was our burgers. Their burgers are well priced and INCLUDES a side – unlike other burger joints in Cape Town. I ordered the The Bees Knees (R88.50) and Sune ordered the Red Hot Chilli Pepper (R89.90).
Our burgers were perfectly medium rare and they didn’t hold back on the toppings.
Overall I loved my first diner experience. The staff at Joe’s Diner were friendly, the food was great and I’m defiantly heading back, even if it’s just for a milkshake.
