Joe Spallina, owner of Joe’s Homestyle Eatery, literally grew up in the food service industry. It began for him back when his father and uncle started the original Italian Festival in 1975 in Greece. “Over the years I’ve had some great business opportunities including running local businesses and as the Director of Operations for Red Osier Food Services. I never stayed away from the business for very long, and I grew to find my passion is in both preparing food, and seeing people enjoy what I make,” Joe says.

Joe’s Eatery opened July 7, 2014. A family business Joe’s staff includes his son, Jake Spallina, daughter, Jennifer Spallina, Phillip Sogard and “an incredible amount of help and support from girlfriend, Michele Wrue.”

The slogan at Joe’s Eatery is “Always Fast & Fresh, Never Fast Food” and that is what they strive for everyday. Located at 502 Long Pond Road inside of North Greece Grocery, Joe’s Eatery offers food that is prepared in-house using only the best local, fresh ingredients. They hand press their sausage each morning for the breakfast sandwiches. They slow oven roast the turkey and beef for their sandwiches and also offer their meats and fresh sliced cheeses in their deli, by the pound, including new item, deep fried turkey breast.

Joe’s famous Greens and Beans and Chili are available daily for lunch along with one other variety of homemade soup, choices may include Creamy Chicken with Wild Rice, Italian Wedding, or Chicken Noodle.

The menu also includes an assortment of breakfast sandwiches, specialty sandwiches, plates, wings and Joe’s Famous Shaved Steak Sub. “I let my customers decide what my specialty is, I prepare what they want to eat,” Joe says. One customer favorite is also Joe’s favorite…Joey’s Favorite Sandwich… Italian Sausage, Capicola, Provolone and Giardiniera, a mixture of hot or mild peppers, olives, celery, olive oil and garlic.

Joe’s Homestyle Eatery’s food is always fresh, and always ready to grab and go. You can eat-in or take-out. They also have a full catering menu available. “I really want my customers to know that when I prepare food for catering everything is ready to serve, or ready to heat and serve, and I include instructions.”

Born and raised in Greece, Joe says, “I look forward to building my spot in the community that I love. Please stop in and say Hi.” Joe’s Homestyle Eatery is open Monday thru Friday 6:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., Saturday 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Sunday 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. To view Joe’s Homestyle Eatery’s menus visit
