Good Morning Arizona: Tokyo Joe’s opens in Mesa
MESA, Ariz. — While the idea for Tokyo Joe’s originated in Arizona in the late ’80s, it was about a decade before the first location opened — in Colorado.
The popular restaurant, which grew into a Colorado chain, specializes in clean eating. The ingredients are fresh and everything is grilled or steamed. There’s nothing fried and there’s no wok cooking. What’s more, everything is made to order.
When the founder of Tokyo Joe’s decided to expand beyond Colorado, Arizona, the state where the concept for the restaurant was born, seemed like a natural choice.
The first Tokyo Joe’s outside the Rocky Mountain State is now up and running in Mesa.
