“A small town treasure”

Restaurant details
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Joel's is a small town treasure often overlooked by visitors. Really good food, served informally at a good price. Once served from a trailer on a vacant lot, they now have their own building--eat inside or outside. I've tried most things on the menu and have never been disappointed. Try it! Be prepared to wait a few minutes at lunch... the locals know about Joel's and it gets busy.

With a very wide range menu for a small walk up to the counter restaurant, Joel's Mexican has everything from fish tacos to chilli verde burritos. Locally owned and family operated for decades. From out of town and like things spicy?? Ask for habanero sauce! Great for breakfast and lunch, closed at 4PM.

If you want the best Mexican food in town then head on over to Joel's Evrything is delicious and fresh. You can't go wrong no matter what you order. Just make sure to bring $ because they don't take plastic.

I ordered the Carne Asada burrito. It was huge! More than I could eat. Enjoyed every bite!
Makes me wish I could have one right no. Wonderfully seasoned, with tender meat. I'm a burrito snob, and this one rated right up there. Can't wait to go back.

Fast service, friendly staff.

Locals line up for this Mexican Restaurant. It is on a side street so they don't have much visibility but the place is packed. Monday through Saturday, open for breakfast and closed by 5. Cash or check only. Order at the counter and they call your name when the food is ready. And the food is fabulous. Best Mexican food I have ever had.
