Happy 3 Months! at Joe's Cafe

Saturday September 19th was Loyd and my 3 month anniversary. To celebrate we went to Joe's Cafe on 1126 S State Street in Orem. This is a brand new diner, and it is good! They serve burgers and breakfast foods from 8am to 4pm Monday-Saturday.

Loyd had Joe's Ultimate burger and I had the biscuits and gravy and grits. OH MY! It was soooo good. I have had buscuits and gravy at several other restaurants while living here in Utah and I have never been satisfied. These mamajammas were AWESOME! And the grits are sweet and just the right thickness. Grits are a complex delicacy that can easily be ruined, but Joe's does a great job. I have also had one of is omelets! WOW!

Loyd's burger was great as well. My own personal rating on burger deliciousness is what I have termed the "Messy Scale". If while eating a burger you never have juices dripping from the burger, or over your knuckles, or down your chin, then you've just got scammed. A good burger leaves you wiping up after yourself. Joe's Ultimate Burger is a thick, juicy, messy delight!

But what is good homecooking without soul? without conversation? without atmosphere? Boring is what it is. Joe's wins again! Joe is a hilarious gentlemen who welcomes everyone in his diner. If there are people inside you will hear jokes and laughter! It is a laid back place with a small town feel where you don't feel rushed to eat your food or move out of the way. It's a great place. Loyd and I like to find any reason to eat there, hence our 3 month anniversary.  haha

After Joe's we went to the mall specifically to find a photo booth. We took some great pics to record our fun day. Its great being married!
