Great for breakfast

I have been stopping in for breakfast and find it can not be beat. Real corned beef hash. Many of my friends go there for dinner and lunch. Will try that soon. Keep up the good quality. Paul Westermeyer, Norwich, Ct.

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

The best items on the menu are the Mexican dishs and breakfast items the rest seem to just be frozen fillers to expand the menu

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

I've been going to Joy's for years. The customer service and food quality has been amazing since the new family took over a few years ago. They have very tastes food and are generally pretty quick. The staff is very friendly. Although I have not tried it, I have also heard very positive things about their Mexican dishes! They are... More

My boyfriend and I like to try new things together. He found Joy's online and decided to give it a try. We came in on a very busy Sunday morning, were greeted, and told to sit anywhere we wished as we walked in the door. We picked a booth and shortly thereafter, a waitress came over to fill our coffee... More

Joy's was an amazing breakfast. The omelets, gravy, and pancakes were superb. The service was fantastic, even with 3 kids at the table! They have a Mexican flair to their meals which is a refreshing spice for breakfast. Only 2 tables that can accommodate larger groups. Will certainly be back.
