"Ken... Just a note to let you know that I received the over night delivery of the 75th anniversary tee-shirt and hat on Christmas morning. I appreciate you taking the time to send out the order so quickly. I wasn't expecting it that fast. It turned out that you helped me make it to my folks later that day with a gift for my brother, that he appreciated it to no end. I wanted to extend my thanks and sincere appreciation to you once again, although belated. Your attention to detail and customer service is a bright spot in an otherwise fading stream of faceless bars and crappy service. Maybe that's why Joe's has been around so long. You won't need luck to make another 75 years, just continued damn good service. Of course, having the best pickled eggs in the entire universe doesn't hurt either. Have a good new year and maybe I'll drag my butt out of my bark-a-lounger and get down there. Tip one for me..."

"Looking forward to the Long Beach Grand Prix only because I will spend 5 days in Long Beach and your establishment. Will you have any T-shirts made for the event? I have talked about joes to my friends and they could not believe that a place could offer so much. Once we were there last year, they were also convinced. Thanks again and we'll see you in April."
"Hello, I just finished experiencing your excellent website and want to say that your tavern looks like a really cool place. Unfortunately, I never have been able to experience the place in person but I will put this on the top of my list of attractions the day I do visit California. Joe Josts reminds me of the old, authentic, neighborhood watering holes we are blessed to have in Philly and the Northeast and I love the Pabst on tap. I became aware of your establishment when I met a girl this summer at the Jersey Shore and she was wearing a JoeJosts.com T-shirt. Needless to say, this girl was a really, really cool chick. Keep up the good work, and I hope to see out there soon."
"Dear Joe's: As a reference librarian and occasional writer about food and drink I am often asked about the most unique watering holes in Southern California. I never hesitate a second about the best tavern in the land which is Joe Jost's. My idea of perfection is digging into a Joe's Special with a icy schooner of Pabst in front of me up at the bar. I go back to the days of Eastside Old Tap and the old gentleman who bussed tables for tips and the beauty and tradition has never faded from your establishment. Thanks."
