Bomb breakfast

This place is unexpectedly really good. I love breakfast and this place has never got it wrong. The omlette with home fries is amazing! Sometimes there is a wait because the inside is small but its worth it!!

Authentic mexican food! Delicious homemade tortillas served warm with huevos con salsa verde. The Mexican omelette also very good with fresh jalapenos. Waitress was very nice and food was served promptly during their busy time.

I am an AZ Mexican food girl raised on Sonora flavored. This is my go to place for my Mexican spicy flavorful food fix. It's a diner that is crowded on Sunday's because of its full menu, good price and food. One of my favs on Sunday or any day

Anything the Flores family touches is usually a success and Joy's is no exception Breakfast, lunch or dinner - all the usual diner fare but also Mexican options -Huervos Rancheros for breakfast but maybe you'd rather have Bisteak! Chiluquilles, Burritos, nachos all get the joys treatment and the Breakfast Burrito will give you a couple meals... Right up the road... More

Love those grilled corn muffins! Pretty standard american breakfast fare. However if you branch out you'll discover so much love goes into the huevos rancheros and other expertly prepared mexican egg dishes. It's ART. Have yet to try lunch or dinner, since I always take advantage of all day breakfast. Sweet, slow waitstaff and good prices. Food challenge: finish the... More

Staff was very welcoming and place was hopping. However, I have no idea why?! I figured it was due to a very family friendly/ familiar atmosphere. It seemed the staff knew just about everyone. Good was bland and a bit greasy. Perhaps I ordered the wrong thing... It was what the waitress said was best seller... A couple of fried... More

This is a diner. They have all the typical dinner food and my favorite spicey chorizo Mexican sausage that we get on a herrachi when we go. I also get their tamales. I grew up in Arizona so I really miss that Mexican flavor. The tamales are just right and I top with green sauce. I keep going back. The... More
