Quench your thirst and quell your hunger at Joe’s Oasis, your family friendly neighborhood bar and grill. Traditionally, the word, oasis, was used to describe a fertile area in the desert, where water could be found. Over the years, however, the word oasis has become synonymous with the idea of paradise, or a refuge to rest your weary bones, relax and rejuvenate. At Joe’s Oasis you can do just that.
Joe’s Oasis, owned and operated by Pittsburgh, PA native, Cathy Krizner, is quickly becoming the hot new neighborhood destination. Joe’s officially opened its doors on November 26th, 2013 and celebrated its grand opening on February 8th of this year. The Pittsburgh themed bar and grill was opened by Mrs. Krizner, who moved to the area in 2012 and named the establishment in honor of her late husband.
Joe’s offers a wide variety of unique menu items, including a signature, homemade burger recipe, the famous Pittsburgh brewed Iron City beer and other southwest Pennsylvania favorites, like the Steelworkers Stack, a sandwich with the sides on the inside and Isaly’s Chipped Chopped Ham. Joe’s has other sandwich favorites and classics, like the Rueben or Rachel, the Kielbasa and Sauerkraut hoagie and, of course, the ever popular Game Day Cheese Steak.
Some of their more daring culinary pursuits are the pierogi creations of Head Cook, David Landgreen. The pierogi, while more commonly a northern dish, is beginning to gain notoriety in the southern states and the novel creations at Joe’s will, no doubt, boost the growing popularity of this delicious dish. The original recipe for David’s pierogies is a family heirloom and some of the more recent variations of the dish include; loaded baked potato, cabbage, jalapeno steak, honey bbq chicken, Isaly’s Chipped Chopped Ham and the philly cheesesteak. Other flavor creations are currently in the works.  The “Daily Joe” features daily food specials, available Sunday through Monday, from 11:30am to 9:00pm and drink specials, available until last call. Some of their daily food specials include; Isaly’s Chipped Chopped Ham on Sunday, served regular or sloppy, Wednesday Wing Day, featuring 50 cent wings and 60 cent boneless wings, and the create your own appetizer special, on Saturday. 
For those of you who like to catch a local band on the weekend or just want to listen to some good music and have a beer, Joe’s has that too. Live bands will be booked for Saturday nights and updates for upcoming bands and events can be found on their facebook page. If you’d rather do the singing yourself, karaoke night is every Thursday at 8:00pm and for those of you who enjoy a little intellectual stimulation, Trivia Night is on Wednesdays at 7:30pm.
 On Saturday, April 5th, from 5:00pm to 9:00pm, Joe’s Oasis will hold a fundraiser for the upcoming MS Walk, which will take place at Greenfield Lake Park on April 26th. A portion of the appetizer sales will be donated to the MS Society, through Team MS Moments.
The National Multiple Sclerosis Society benefits those diagnosed with MS, providing research and treatment to help stop the progression of the disease and to ultimately end MS forever. Joe’s Oasis invites you to come out and support this worthy cause. For more information about the MS Society, you can visit their website at www.nationalmssociety.org.
