The original Joey's Pancake House back in 1966
We bet you didn't know that we haven't always been in the building we occupy now.  Way back in 1966 Joey's started in the small building just below the Ghost Town parking lot.  We didn't have our iconic sign just yet and the dining room wasn't as big but the pancakes were just as good!
