Jolie’s Place


Jolie’s Place gets its very own post because it is a haunt my Aunt Terri and Bryan frequent. It is also a place we stepped into three times on our short visit with them! But I can see why they love it so much.


The funny thing is that even before we planned our trip to Arizona, I kept seeing them check in at Jolie’s Place on Facebook. I commented at one point that it must be good because it seems like they were there all the time! Bryan promptly replied that we would be going there when we next came down to visit.

I can see why. The menu just makes us drool. Our first visit was for breakfast.


Chicken Fried Steak –  Breaded and fried steak covered in homemade sausage gravy along with two eggs cooked to order, country potatoes or hash browns and your side of toast. $9.95

Both Rob and Bryan ordered the Chicken Fried Steak {once Rob was convinced it wasn’t made with chicken!} with smothered hash browns and sourdough toast. For only $6.50, I ordered the Smothered Hashbrowns {not pictured} – golden hash browns, grilled onions and cheddar cheese smothered in  homemade sausage gravy and topped with two eggs. Seriously, you can’t beat these prices! My aunt went the opposite of our savory routes:

$8.95 - French Toast Cinnamon streusel andpanko coated Texas toast, grilled to a goldn brown, topped with whip cream and fresh strawberries. - See more at:

How to explain this bar/restaurant? It’s big. Bikers like it. People who get off work at 6am eat and drink here. It’s open 6am to 2am. And you’ll always see someone here!


There is also live music many nights…


And I love that they have 12 hours of “Happy Time” every day!

We stopped to play some darts one night hopping around a bit. And guess what, we did take some people photos! The new age jukebox thingy allowed us to take selfies! Yes, my aunt and I were having a great time… {Although she is much better at darts.}

And it was Jolie’s where we ended our trip as well. It was Tuesday, Super Tuesday in fact {a time when you must always order tacos!} so we went for their Tuesday $1 Street Tacos for lunch before heading to the airport.


Yes, those delectable tacos were only a dollar each! We also enjoyed my aunt’s favorite Mac and Cheese Bites ($6.25) – little pillows of smoked Gouda and macaroni, deep fried and served with chipotle ketchup.

And Rob found this menu item irresistible:

$6.95 - Fried Peanut Butter & Jelly We take crunch peanut butter and raspberry jelly and generously spread it between two pieces of fresh white bread. Then we beer batterit... then we deep fr it...they we dust it with powedered sugar!!! YUMMMMMMMM!!! Served with a handful of crispy sweet potato fries. - See more at:

I just had to try a corner and it was seriously crazy delicious!

All-in-all, both halves of our trip were wonderfully needed and relaxing. Thank you to Nora for all the beer and good times and letting us crash with you!

And the same to my Aunt Terri and Bryan – not to mention crashing their wedding anniversary on Leap Day that only comes around once every four years!


We love you! XOXOXOX
