Big Joe's Falafel & Hamburger, Richmond Hill - Surprisingly good!

Charles Yu | Sep 5, 2009 08:48 PM

Worked late tonight. Decided to have a quick bite at Big Joe's in Richmond Hill ( Yonge, just north of Elgin Mills ). Had a Lamb Shish-Kebab with hand cut home made fries, gravy and Greek salad. Lamb was grilled perfectly to medium rare and unbelievably tender ( Ontario Spring lamb used ) served with some nice Tsisiki. Skin -on fries was ultra crisp and gravy was dense and flavourful ( very similar to New York Fries version but less sweet ). A very nice change from Chinese noodles or rice on Hwy#7 a few blocks down!
When I was leaving, I overheard a customer telling 'Joe' the owner that he drove all the way from 'Eglington and Bathurst' just for his Falafel and burger!! Must be goooood?!
