If it was great the first time, it must be good a second go ’round, right? I’m happy to report that Mac Joe lived up to its prior reputation…
I went back again tonight with the new toes

Our server tonight was Adam, who was limping due to a flare-up of gout (OUCH), but a great server nonetheless. I tried to keep his trips back to our table to a minimum, after watching him limp out to greet us and return to the restaurant.
