Jo’s Diner is Open for Business at 219 Washington Street in Hoboken–Try the Roast Beef Sandwich

Joe’s Diner is now open for business in Hoboken. Located at 219 Washington Street at the site of the former Japanese Restaurant Maru, Jo’s Diner is priming to be a bustling breakfast/luncheonette in a prime location. They have been open about a week and are planning on a schedule of 7am-7pm. They are still in the “soft opening” phase but TheBoken.com was able to pop in and try a few of their lunch/dinner items last week….

Jo's Diner Hoboken Chicken Soup with Leg

The first item was the chicken soup which has a unique feature of having a chicken leg in the bowl. The stock was very thick with a lot similarity in flavor to French onion soup without the cheese and a bit more like chicken broth (of course) . This item will likely be a favorite given its unique home-style flavor and perhaps the novelty of getting to eat part of it with your hands.

Jo's Diner Hoboken Roast Beef Sandwich

The next item was the Roast Beef Sandwich. This sandwich comes with delicious dipping gravy and a pasta salad. The Roast Beef and gravy were excellent but perhaps this could be offered with additional options like French fries, mashed potatoes or even coleslaw. The sandwich itself is definitely worth coming back for.

Below are a few more interior shots of the interior of this family run restaurant. Note that this restaurant is adorned with decorative roosters as a tribute to the mother of the owner Joseph who collected them but recently passed away after a long illness. It is a nice touch to a restaurant that is family owned by a third generation Hobokenite.

  1. Glad to see a real diner open downtown, There used to be one few blocks up and one where Teak now is (Stewart's?). Good luck to the new operators.
