Restaurant Report Card: Joe D’s in Macon

0
MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – It’s the local lunch joint that’s all about serving good food to the community.
   
Joe D’s in Macon is the next restaurant featured in our Restaurant Report Card.

I asked around about what to eat at this home grown lunch joint on Ingleside Avenue.

"We’re gourmet everyday, pretty much," said Joe D. Mullendore, owner of Joe D’s.

I got recommendations all over the place–everybody likes a little something different.

"Oh you want the chicken salad again, the fact that she remembered my order–and my order was amazing," said customer Sara Elliot.

But what’s the same is the quality health inspections Joe D’s strives for–especially last week’s 100.

But this week, no one’s sharper than Joe D’s on Ingleside Drive in Macon.

Lunch can include anything from an Andouille Sausage ‘Po Boy to a slaw dog with baked beans.

"Their soups are amazing as well, I like the taco soup, their potato soup," said Elliot.

"Well I’ve had about everything on the menu," said customer Seth Cobb. "Everything’s great. One of my favorites is the chili."

There’s a local vibe to the place.

"They’re huge Mercer fans, I see them at football games, at basketball games, I see them around town, and they support what we have going on over there," said Elliot.

"We definitely try to greet everybody by first name, or, like Sara said, by with what we know that they want. We might not know your name, but we know what you want," said Joe D.

And being clean is at the top of the menu.

"People do read those health ratings, big time here. So they really help out a lot–get a 100 because I don’t want to have to answer questions to people, ‘why’d you get a 91 or a 92?’ so we just try and stay clean and consistent."

It’s consistently clean, and for the customers, it’s consistently good.

Joe D’s is making the grade this week.
