In many ways, Joe Jr.'s Restaurant is your prototypical greasy spoon. The brown leather seats of the eight booths don't match the padded purple backs, the brushstroke-patterned wallpaper is peeling, and the floor tiles look as though they've crawled out from the men's room. But there's a camaraderie between customers at the counter and the line cook and the cashier that can make this space feel like a sports bar where small burgers and shoestring fries stand in for screwdrivers and beer. Pictures of local athletes (Derek Jeter, Jeremy Shockey, etc.) prompt patrons to dissect the latest Yankees headlines. For the rest, large windows facing Sixth Avenue encourage the sedentary sport of people-watching.
