Interview with Ken Buck by Go Long Beach!

Joe Jost's, one of the oldest pubs in Long Beach was founded in 1924 by my grandfather. Joe Jost's is a Long Beach institution and one of the oldest continually operated taverns west of the Mississippi River. In fact, take a moment to learn more about the real Joe Jost here.

Joe Jost's is one of the best sports bars and dive bars in Long Beach. With world famous T-Shirts and a history of serving up the coldest beer, tastiest "Joe's Special" sandwiches, pickled eggs and fresh roasted peanuts, you will enjoy the warmest atmosphere of any tavern in the United States.

Speaking of cold beer, Joe's used to serve a local favorite, Eastside Old Tap Lager, from 1934 until Eastside stopped making draft beer in the mid-1970's. Today, Busch Bavarian Beer outsells all of our other tap beers. We're proud to serve Busch and all of our tap beers at a frosty 29 degrees Fahrenheit. Need proof? Check out our amazing Keg Cam for the current temperature.

You won't find low-carb wraps or fancy salads at Joe Jost's. Nope, take a peek at our menu and you'll see we've kept things pretty much the same since my grandfather began serving beer and food after prohibition in 1934."

The highlight of our menu is the Joe's Special, a favorite since 1934. It's a freshly steamed, family recipe all-beef sausage on rye bread that's baked especially to our specifications. Top it off with Swiss cheese, a sliced dill pickle, and some mustard and you've got a Long Beach legend that's been served up to literally millions of happy customers for more than 70 years.

At Joe Jost's, tradition is king. We've got more than 80 years of Long Beach history here at Joe's. We've even archived a ton of great old photos, articles and films that'll give you a feel for the great history of our place.

We love our customers; they come in from all over the world. Most of our regulars come from several generations of Long Beachers who've made Joe Jost's the best neighborhood tavern anywhere. Take a moment to check out some of their testimonials and see for yourself why people love Joe's.
