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!
