Mean, pretentious bar staff

Nobody should ever go to Joey's. It is that simple. The staff is mean, slow, and arrogant. When I go to a bar, I don't expect much. I would like prompt service, but if they're busy, I understand and am willing to be patient. I don't need my bartender to shake my my hand or even smile at me. What I do want is to be treated with respect, but all I have ever seen there is heaps of disrespect. From the "bouncer" working through his Napoleon syndrome rather than working the door, to the rude waitresses, all the way to the hostile bartenders, there is no respect to be found in the entire place. They are quick in one respect, they all love to tell you how much better they and their bar are than everywhere else on the strip. This place is overpriced, pretentious, and most of all, unfriendly.

A very bad bar

I have been a regular at Joey's for over ten years. The other day, I asked myself a simple question, ""Why?"" It is by far the most expensive bar in the area. The narrow set up of the bar is an architectural nightmare. The service is slow, slower than just about any place I can recall. But the worst part about this bar is the staff and their attitudes. At best, they are unpleasant, and most nights they are openly contemptuous. They seem to make it their goal to make the customers feel as unwelcome as possible. A few months back, I had several friends from out of town visiting. I took them to Joey's, and wow, that was a huge mistake! I was so embarrassed. All night, I had to hear my friends tell me how horrible the bar scene in San Antonio is compared to Austin, Alberquerque, and Denver. I tried to explain to them that Joey's was not indicative of our town, but to no avail. This is not a good place.

Not for the hipsters

Great overall bar that is unpretentious. Not a lot of sitting room, however, don't plan on a big group.

Joey's is great.

When no one can agree on what to do or where to go we always end up at Joey's. It's a sure thing - a great place to meet up with some friends and chill. They have a good beer selection and serve food (pizza, sandwiches) as well. Everything I've had there has been great.
