Descended from the first Original Joe’s founded in 1937 in San Francisco, San Jose Original Joe’s has been a beloved community staple located in the heart of Silicon Valley since 1956. The Mineta San José International Airport location is one of the most successful restaurants in the airport, serving classic Italian-American fare at its finest.
As I waited for my flight to Austin Texas I had the greatest Service from Erich at San Jose Joe’s. Erich was very attentive and treated as if i was at 5 Star Resort. Although the restaurant was really busy he made sure I was taken care of. When asked about the wines he knew about the wine selections. The soup was really good and the steak was also amazing. When Traveling out of the San Jose Airport I will make sure to ask for Erich for his great service.
This review focuses on the San Jose Joe’s restaurant at the San Jose, CA airport. The restaurant is inside the security threshold, near the gates frequently used by Southwest Airlines.
This restaurant is focused on traditional Southern Italian dishes, such as spaghetti and meatballs, Italian sausage and the like. All are served in huge portion sizes, and the food is not only tasty, but so delicious that it compares well with any Southern Italian restaurant anywhere in the area. On my most recent trip in late January, I tried Joe’s Special, a scrambled high-protein mixture of eggs, ground beef and spinach…It definitely gave me the energy that I needed for the long drive home following my flight. It was also delicious, and so large that I wound up packing half of it to take home. This is one of the best airport restaurants I patronize, and I’m already looking forward to my next visit!
