"JOE'S" - Richmond Hill's iconic Hamburger joint. 2+ decades old and still going strong!

The line-up at this iconic Richmond Hill diner during dinner hour is unreal! A reflection of the quality of food offered. I've been coming here ever since I moved to Richmond Hill over 20 years ago. After a major expansion and renovation a few years back, the amount of seating places had doubled but the same size kitchen still managed to churn out equally high quality Western and eastern comfort food - fresh handcrafted Hamburgers, Steak sandwiches, Shawarma, Falafel, Shish-Kebabs....etc. Majority of the perfectly cooked proteins from the grill exude gorgeous, smokey charcoal aroma originated from nicely caramelized crusts. My 'cook-to-order' medium rare lamb Shish-Kebab ( only eatery in Richmond Hill offering a lamb option?! ) was juicy and delightfully tender! The dark and complex gravy, IMO is one of the best in town!! Sooo good! Great with fries, poutine....everything! Both Kofta Kebab and Hamburger were also excellent.
After a hiatus of a few years, it is time for me to reconsider this place again for delicious non-oriental quick bites?!
