Re: “Pass the Salt

And then of course you can challenge the Klingons for interstellar domination.

Re: “Pass the Salt

I love Joe Mama's. A place that cares about you and your family when you go out to eat. What a treat! The food is fresh and made to order and someone stops by the table to check on you several times. Pei Wei, Subway and the rest of the counter service joints could care less! We need to support the locals and stop slamming them. Emily I think you need to order your Big Mac and watch your old Star Track shows. Add salt as needed!

Re: “Pass the Salt

Are you from outer space? I beg to differ! The french toast kabobs are excellent and the best I have ever had, very unique!! The SW eggs benedict is packed full of flavor with really spicy chorizo and they bake there own jalapeno cornbread. Have you eaten eggs bene anywhere else? this is the most creative spin on it that I've ever seen. The Killer Mama Burger is delicious and very juicy. Salt is really bad for you and I'm happy they have found a middle ground with not over salting there dishes (Did you notice the salt on the table??). The Nob Hill omelette is extremely flavorful, what a great combination, it's also very good with egg whites if your watching your calorie intake like I am. I'm not sure what your talking about when you say the prices are high? They even offer a $2.99 breakfast special M-F before 9:30am (I haven't figured out how they make a profit on this meal yet). Something to consider is that it's a husband and wife running the restaurant probably on a small budget. It's not a big budget chain or even a franchise. Isn't more small business what our economy needs right now. Tipping is optional at least you don't have to leave 20 or even 15%. Their concept is counter order with a full service feel. Don't expect a fast food pace but a moderate cooked to order time frame without the hassle of a sit down style restaurant. I don't know about you but I'm tired of the same old country themed sit down diners. I was way ready for something more modern and earthy!! If you had ever actually eaten at the mexican restaurant that was there before it was Joe Mama's, you would know that they changed it a lot and they got rid of the awful pink color. Anyone reading this review shouldn't take this mind altered treky's distasteful opinion and go try this family owned and operated establishment for themselves. Scotty, beam him back up to his ship...
