Jessica, my mother, and I went to a new restaurant that recently opened near our house in Gilbert: Joe’s Farm Grill.
The namesake of said grill is the well known owner and operator of the eastern Arizona restaurant: Joe’s Real BBQ. Joe’s really does have the best BBQ that you can find in Arizona, it’s just amazing. We even like their food so much we’ve had them cater our yearly casino parties.
Maybe Joe was getting a bit bored with just the BBQ, maybe wanted to try something new, maybe he wanted to do something in his old neighborhood. That something new is the grill.
Located at, in, and around his childhood home at Ray and Higley roads, is this new post-modern eatery. Built using portions of the original brick farmhouse nestled amonst some very old trees, is the grill.
The restaurant is partially open-air with a breezeway and patio tables, but they also have a dining room that once was the family’s living room. The building is also situated within Agritopia: a housing development with urban houses, farmland, and farmer’s markets.
We got there at around dusk, so I couldn’t really take any pictures, but Joe’s is a sight to see. I’ll be sure to take more shots on our next visit.
So of course you are probably asking, “How’s the food?”
Well I got an Ahi Tuna Sandwich with a side of sweet potato fries, which I thought was quite good. It was much better than I was expecting.
Jessica got a chicken tenders meal that didn’t quite suit her tastes, but my mother got a BBQ pork sandwich that she thought was quite good.
Overall, I would say that the available options are great (salads, pizzas, burgers, sandwiches, BBQ, etc) and the flavors were above average.
So if you get a chance to come out to Gilbert, be sure to stop by Joe’s Farm Grill and see what all the fuss is about.
