HoCo Holler: So Long Farewell

Today will be the last day to grab a bite at Joe's Place Deli in Columbia.

I first learned of Joe’s Place through Dave and Ilana Bittner of HoCoMoJo fame. Their business Pixel Workshop is located right next door. For a while the Elevate Maryland podcast used Joe’s Place as their interviewing home base.

Over years since my family and I have visited when ever we happened to be available: in the summer or during a vacation. On most days, if they were open, we were at school. Open Monday-Friday, 8-2, they have had a loyal local following and I know they will be greatly missed.

Their sandwiches are ample and sublime. Joe and his wife Tonya are warm and welcoming and the whole place has a homey, comfortable air. Every time I have gone I wished I could spend more time there. It’s just that kind of place.

Joe’s Place has been a part of our community for 25 years. Known for great soups, delicious daily specials, and sandwiches with quirky and humorous names, it will be missed greatly by its fans. Missed most of all will be the genuine warmth and lighthearted humor of Joe and Tonya themselves.

A hearty HoCo Holler to Joe’s Place. We will miss you.
