- that since 1995 (starting at our first location – Pizza Etc.), we have led the Santa Fe food industry, in supporting the Farmers Market.

- that your hosts, Roland and Sheila, have a combined 60+ years in the restaurant industry!!
- that Joe’s is not a chain or a franchise. Joe’s Dining is one of a kind. Joe’s is Roland and Sheila – all that they own, all that they are. We cannot compete with the chains’ marketing budgets. However, they cannot compete with our food or our service or our heart.
- that we cater a significant number of corporate office meetings, weddings, family events, community and church events and doctors’ office meetings and receive marvelous feedback.
- that we have our own pastry chef in house – he does fresh desserts daily as well as beautiful birthday cakes and Gluten-Free options

Here are some thoughts on the Year of the Horse. The horse is one of the Chinese’ favorite animals. A horse provides good and quick transportation, symbolically a sign of speedy success.
