Stopped for lunch at Joe’s Grill in Kitsilano. This is one of four locations for “Joe’s” (others being Main, Denman, and Davie Street). It’s a classic diner with all-day breakfast, burgers, sandwiches, soup, pasta and salads.
I’d had a bit to eat just an hour before, so I decided on something small, a bowl beef vegetable soup
This is a pretty good soup. It appears to be made from scratch, has a rich full broth, and is loaded with shredded beef, carrots, onions, celery, peas and corn.
My lunch companion ordered the bacon cheese burger with fries and coleslaw.
This is a pretty good burger. It’s prepared using fresh hamburger, topped with a couple of slices of smokey fried bacon, and a generous slice of real cheddar cheese, garnished with shredded lettuce, tomatoes, dill pickles and raw onions, mayo and relish on a split sesame bun. It comes with a side of cole slaw and a large serving of crispy french fries.
If I was feeling nitpicky, I’d ask for the burger bun to be toasted, but it’s not a biggy, especially given that the burger combo is a good value (less than $10).
Joe’s is open for breakfast and lunch, but closes in the late afternoon.
