We had a large party of 11 (3 were children). We were told the kitchen was understaffed. They brought the kids food not long after we ordered but the remaining 8 of us didn’t get food until a long time after. Not a big deal to wait, but when the food came out it was cold. A wait isn’t an issue if the food is good, but the food was just ok. I’ve eaten here in the past and really enjoyed it. So I’ll put this up to a bad night.

Made reservations last minute on a Friday night and table was ready when we arrived. Brisket was wonderful as was the service. Have been many times and will definitely return again! Short drive from Lafayette makes this our favorite smokehouse destination.

Seated immediately, more noisy than I like. Difficult to enjoy conversation. Waitstaff very friendly and efficient. Food delivered promptly, ribs were awesome and Texas style chili(I’m 3rd generation) is authentic. Awesome place, it’s just too noisy to visit with friends.

The food is always tasty. My friend and I both tried the ribeye special. It was a full 16 ounces and was as tender as could be. A very nice dinne!

Great food and service at a reasonable price! Easy parking. One very loud customer, but otherwise, a great evening. Looking forward to our next visit to try out other delectable items on the menu!

I have lost track of the many times we have made the 40 minute one way trip to eat at Eddie Joe's. Mainly for the ribs (and the sweet potato muffins!). I am particular about what ribs I eat, and these are great!! For the food and the cost, well worth our trip!! We will be back!!!

The specialty board for Father’s Day was absolutely delicious and the build-a-bloody Mary was wonderful. I would definitely recommend the food. The server was very kind and gave great recommendations. We will definitely be back.

We have annually eaten at Eddie Joe's for Father's Day. It has been awesome. Our entire family, including grandma, loves it.
The menu is awesome and dynamic. We will be back soon.

The atmosphere was welcoming when we arrived and we were greeted quickly. Our waitress was very polite and did come to check on us 2-3 times during our meal. The food, however, was not worth the trip or price. The portion sizes were small in comparison to similar restaurants we’ve been to in the past. I had the pulled pork and most of it was dry and hard, like it was left over from the previous day. My husband had the brisket which was also dry like it was old. The flavors were good, but not good enough to compensate for the food seeming “old”. We also received a special honey walnut butter with our meal and my husband’s butter was moldy! It smelled like fermented liquor and had a fine layer of fuzz all over it. The waitress apologized and after taking it to the kitchen to inspect, she came back and said it was likely from an old batch that got mixed in with the new one. Overall we were not impressed and will not be returning.

Food is GREAT and fast. Server was wonderful and friendly. Wish there was a way to lower the noise level. Impossible to visit with our friends as we dined. I will be back, the food is the best. The Texas chili IS Texas chili. Recipe is correct. I’m a Texan.

The brisket was very dry when we were there. That was disappointing. But the ribs and pulled pork were phenomenal!

Highly recommend Eddie JOES Icehouse. Rib night is our favorite night. We order full rack and split it and order an extra side! Service staff has to be reminded, after bringing food, to bring extra plate. Beer was ice cold. We were greeted with a smile and a hi! Reservation was easy and table was ready. Will definitely be back.

The folks at Eddie Joe's are fantastic! They were kind enough to work with us when our very large group gathered to celebrate my mom's 50th birthday. Our kids were running around and being crazy. We are a rowdy bunch. The waitress even held my daughter and played with her for a minute. She was very sweet. On top of all of this, the food was so yummy. Everyone in our party of almost 20 loved their meal. Thank you, Eddie Joe'a for your kindness and patience.

The ribs were awesome as always! However, we have always received excellent service but this time the service was disappointing. Hopefully it was just because you were short staffed. We will be returning hoping for better service in the future. Keep up the good work.

This was our fifth or sixth time and everytime never disappoints! The ribs are outstanding! The homemade fries great! The sweet potato muffin, WOW! Great atmosphere, great service and every meal has been spot on, especially if you like smoked meats. We've had the brisket, filet, and ribs. The ribs are my favorite, seasoned and smoke to perfection.
