Despite the kitschy mounted fish, beer koozies strung about like garland, and a jukebox that always seems to be playing the Chemical Brothers, it's hard to hate a restaurant that serves something called a Joe's Meal Deal: a full rack of award-winning baby-back ribs, caesar salad, choice of side, three garlic rolls, and soda, all for $18.99. Plus the place offers deals that spice up otherwise bland, weekday nights, such as Mexican Mondays, when patrons get a heaping plate of cheese-smothered loaded nachos for free with the purchase of a pitcher of beer after 10 p.m. (Wing It Wednesday is the same concept but with meaty hot wings.) Crisp curly fries accompany solid 10-ounce burgers (all $7.99) that come in varieties such as Caribbean (doused with barbecue sauce, melted cheddar cheese, and two strips of bacon) and Flanigan's Burger (sautéed onions, mushrooms, and Swiss). If you're looking for a leaner option, try Lean Joe's Green Salad ($6.99) with blackened tuna (add $4.99). Desserts are large and therefore recommended for those who have eaten lightly or have bottomless pits for stomachs. The Banzai Brownie ($6.99), a warm brownie topped with vanilla ice cream, is garnished with a whole Kit Kat bar.
