“In the summer of ’69 a colleague and I were working in the Long Beach area when I was introduced to “Joe Jost’s”. A small, unpretentious eatery with a line of patrons running out to the sidewalk. It didn’t matter what your stature in life was, a worker with a tool belt or a suit carrying a brief case, all were welcome. The sandwich, the beer, the pickled egg and the speedy service were all excellent. I have never forgotten Joe’s and have told countless others of this experience so that they too could enjoy the same memories I have. Joe Jost’s is and always will be a national icon even surpassing that other place associated with Coney Island.”
