Our Story 

Established in 1972

Joe & Mimma’s restaurant has been owned and run by the Buffa family since November 1972. Girolamo & Rosaria Buffa renovated the former Western Auto Store after moving from Sicily to New York in 1968 then to Virginia in 1970.  Their four children, Joe, Mimma, Anna & Mario grew up watching the restaurant grow with them.  Rosaria, who everyone knows as Mama Buffa retired in 2003. Harold a long time employee now runs the restaurant with the help of his children Rosaria and Girolamo.
