Joe Johnston, the man behind local favorite Joe’s Real BBQ, grew up on this farm in Gilbert. The cotton has been replaced by another Johnston venture, a community called Agritopia, and the family home is now Joe’s Farm Grill.
The restaurant serves burgers, pizza, salads, ribs and more. (They have great breakfasts, too! Try the apple fritters.) As many of the ingredients as possible come from the onsite gardens. The rest comes from local producers.
As you wait in line to place your order, check out the episode of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives featuring Joe’s Farm Grill.
Seating is limited inside, but thee are plenty of tables outside, making it a great option for families. No worries about messes, “indoor voices” or fidgety toddlers, who can run through the grassy common area.
