The atmosphere of the restaurant was very inviting. It was busy and a lot was going on and for me I enjoy that. The meal was delivered very quickly to the table and the server was attentive with our drinks and making sure we had what we needed. For it being my first time there I was very happy with... More

I have always loved Joel's for the sushi rolls and my favorite appetizer (tuna and avocado salad with ginger dressing). Now I have figured out their beer prices are really low every day. No daily special needed. An IPA for 2.75 is my choice today but every beer (domestic or import 12 oz) is under 3 bucks. I don't remember... More

I have heard about Joel's Asian Grill via my coworker which is a transplant from the Philippines to NC. My daughter had recently eaten lunch there, loved it. All I'm hearing are praises for the taste and the volume of the food served. I have also read some bad reviews. So of course it was time to try it myself.... More

One of the few restaurants that I am willing to drive 20+ miles round trip for in the middle of the week. The Lunchbox is my favorite and it is an excellent value for the money. I really like the remodel too. They are always busy so sometimes there is a wait or slow service, but it is worth it.

Excellent food and ok atmosphere. Joe's Sushi is great. The Crab Rangoon roll is fantastic. I could eat a couple of those for dinner. The Kiwi rolls is good. The sauces are great. They list other items as a full Asian menu, but the Sushi is really good. Deserts are great, Fried cheese cake, raspberry cheese cake and etc is... More

I just love their BULALO. Taste exactly like bulalo in Philippines. Ordered KareKare but there is no "twalya" but still taste good. The bagoong that goes with it is too sweet though. Lechon Kawali, cooked to perfection! Only problem the tiny space in the table. I wish they have longer and bigger tables. Another thing is, a bit slow in... More

Joel's makes the best sushi in town (and many other towns) and has very reasonable prices for both food and beverages. My family loves coming here, and from size of the regular evening crowds, so do many other families. Nice outdoor patio, secluded just enough from road noise. The nirvana roll is our favorite!

Went to Joel's for the first time with our family and we were not impressed. Plates came out dirty and crusted in dried up food. I sent my water back because there was something stuck inside the cup. The place feels dirty and under staffed. The last thing I want to feel when eating sushi is gross and disgusted. We... More

We've been really impressed with Phoenix, Sabi, Pisces & others in the area, & finally gave Joel's a try. Very glad we did! They have a variety of things you don't see other places, & plenty of staples too. Everything we got was seasoned perfectly and fresh. Veggie friendly & good beer selection. We'll definitely be back.

Typical non Japanese (Fillipino) Asian restaurant with elaborate sushi rolls and varied Thai and Asian dishes. Priced well but very typical with nothing outstanding to set this place apart. North Carolina does not get good sushi grade fish sourcing and that keeps the level somewhat low. The best thing on the menu is the pork belly steamed rolls.

Thank T2x
