Buffalo Joe's Staff Relief Fund

Buffalo Joe's has proudly served Evanston and beyond since 1984. We have enjoyed serving our customers, getting to know everyone and their families, seeing familiar faces. Recognizing you and knowing you by name and your favorite order. Our employees are like family who depend on their weekly pay to cover their expenses. We agree that it is in the best interest of our staff, customers and community that we temporarily place a hold on all dine in services as we face this pandemic.

We will be open and offer curbside pickup, however our staff will experience reduced hours due to the limited hours and our ability to serve our customer base. Let's hope this period of operation is not extended. The uncertainty adds angst to our staff and their families, who are already burdened with this financial hardship. If you have the means and would like to ease their burden please support Buffalo Joe's staff. All proceeds will go directly to our hourly staff. We will match all donations up to $10,000. 

We thank each and every one of you for your continued support over the past years. We are proud and grateful to be part of such a fabulous community. Stay safe and healthy.

You can support us by ordering curbside pickup.
