Lovin' Bein' Shoeless

Shoeless Joe's on UrbanspoonOn Friday night my girlfriend and I headed up to King Henry's Arms for a bite to eat. I had looked at Restaurantica.com to see where might be a good place to go to eat besides my regular places in town. King Henry's Arms was well rated and I had never been there before. My girlfriend and I arrived around 7:00 P.M. to find there was an hour wait!

We decided to head across the street to Shoeless Joe's at Orchard Heights & Yonge Street in Aurora. We were seated right away. This is a relatively small restaurant compared to others in town (i.e. East Side Marios) and have always had decent service here. Jaclyn, our server, took our drink order right away. The drinks came pretty quickly and she gave us additional time for my girlfriend to decide on an order.

My girlfriend had the classic burger with fries and I had the triple play burger with fries. The food came quick and was decently cooked. We took our time and Jaclyn checked in once to see if we needed anything else after she delivered the food. We both enjoyed our meal.

Following our meal Jaclyn inquired if we would like dessert or anything else. We politely got the bill. We tipped her fairly well and left. Jaclyn was a great server in that she kept things moving a decent pace and we never had to wait long for service when required. The food was well prepared as well.

Hopefully, one day we will get to King Henry's Arms, but since it seems like it is the most popular place in town, we don't mind having old standbys like Sholess Joe's where good service and decent food are normal.
