Joe’s has been around forever and at some point you’ll probably end up here with your family or because everyone you asked told you it was a Miami requirement. The century-old restaurant has white table cloths and plenty of sunburnt parties of 10. But if you want something more casual, check out Joe’s Take-Away next door. It’s the exact same food, just with fewer tuxedo-clad waiters. Besides the crab, they have surprisingly great fried chicken and since you’re already eating with your hands, you might as well continue.
