A Sunday Lunch At Joe Jost's

So many people said you've got to take Mike to Joe Jost's the quintessential dive bar of Long Beach. They punctuated this by saying "make sure you eat the famous pickled eggs with your hot dogs and beer!" So finally on April 28th, after living in Long Beach for 34 years we made it to Joe Jost's." We ordered the Joe special sandwiches (housemade polish sausages, served with mustard, Swiss cheese and a pickle wrapped in rye bread, the famous pickled eggs served in a basket of pretzels and yellow chiles. It's divey alright but we've been to divey-er. Joe's is cool divey! We were lucky to snag a table, at 12:30 the place was packed. Took a walk to the back billiards room after we ate and there was room back there, not too busy which probably is Not the case at night. Food and drink were inexpensive and it was a fun place. Now we can finally say we've been to the bar that has been around for over 90 years. We were also told the eggs are pickled in house and outsell the sandwiches with some 12,000 eggs consumed a month! 20,000 schooners of beer are dispensed to go with the food.
