"This dish originated in San Francisco in the 1920s, at a long-gone Italian-American restaurant called New Joe's. Later, it was the signature dish of a SF Bay Area chain called Original Joe's, a restaurant originally located in San Francisco's Tenderloin District. Classic diner food, now found all across America. Variations include Italian Joe's, which includes Italian sausage instead of ground beef, and Mexican Joe's, which includes chorizo instead of ground beef. Indian Joe's changes out the oregano and nutmeg for 2 teaspoons curry powder and no cheese."
