Joe's Oldest Than Dirt
Founder Joe Keal’s spirit allegedly haunts the labyrinthine halls of Joe’s Older Than Dirt, an age-old dive where more than 50 types of bourbon complement Southern-tinged pub fare and a rotating roster of live events. Topped with bacon bits and shredded cheese, a double order of house fries can pen a hearty prologue across the evening’s menu, as can a quintet of crispy potato skins decked in diced onions and dollops of sour cream. All-natural gourmet beef anchors the Lodge burger, which peppers its juicy half-pound patty with fresh veggies and melted cheese, all ensconced between buns toasted by the wayward lasers of bumbling ghostbusters. An epic array of sandwiches, including eats piled high with grilled bologna and battered white fish, crushes appetites, alongside personal pizzas served in one of six classic styles, such as hawaiian and barbecue.
