Joe's Farm Grill

If you are ever in the Gilbert, Arizona area, and want a unique place to grab some fast food, make sure to check out Joe's Farm Grill.

The restaurant sits on a 12 acre parcel of an Urban Farm Community called Agritopia, surrounded by fruit orchards, gardens and Arts and Crafts style homes.
The grill is a remodel of the original home built by the Johnston family in 1966.

Dining is Al Fresco, which is pleasant through most months here in Arizona.
We met as a family to celebrate our daughter's birthday, and there was plenty of room for the little children to run and play.

The setting felt like a step back in time as we sat under citrus trees, and looked out on the well groomed surrounding gardens.
Joe's Farm Grill uses as many fruits, vegetables and herbs as they can from Agritopia. They pride themselves in using local, organic or natural ingredients in their menu.

In fact, they were recently featured on Diners, Drive-In's and Dives with Guy Fieri.
(we love that show!)

Portions are huge.

I really enjoyed my Grilled Wedge Salad.

Happy, Happy Birthday to our sweet daughter Amy.

This was a great family setting, where we could relax and visit and take as much time as we needed.
Our SIL brought Amy's favorite traditional birthday dessert of cheesecake. (They even chose cheesecake to serve at their wedding reception instead of cake!)

Looks like you are finding great places in your new home. That is the kind of place we would enjoy too.

We ate there a couple of years ago when we visited my BIL and SIL in the Queens Creek area. I had a really good hamburger. If I'm not mistaken, all the food is fresh and local.

Those onion rings and salad are one order each? Unbelievable. How fun. So glad you are with family.
