We were a little disappointed that the salsa was the best part of the meal. The chili rellenos and the guacamole were blah, as well as the fajitas. Service was bad. Shredded beef taco was decent and the tamale was ok. Rice and beans aren't to bad. We won't go back.

I always judge a Mexican Restaurant by it's Salsa! The Salsa at Joe's is absolutely the best! I have tried many different menu entrees and have never been disappointed. My daughter is a lighter eater and always orders the Chicken quesadilla~ she loves it! I love the Chili Rellenos and my husband loves the Shredded Beef Enchiladas. The Rice and... More

The chips and salsa are the best around! Can't get enough! Also love the fajitas, Mahalo & Alamo Quesadilla. Very good food for the price.

I believe the true measure of a Mexican Food place is how good the chips and salsa are. Frankly, I can't stop eating them so I am full by the time the meal gets to me. The main course is always hot and portions are huge but I never have enough room because I eat too many chips/salsa. This is... More

We kind of got off to a bad start here in that because a eating restrictions, my wife always orders a ground been enchilada ala carte when we dine at a Mexican Restaurant. Our waitress, Stacy, informed her that the enchilada would be the same as a full meal because they did not do ala carte. This is a rare... More

Atmosphere isn't the greatest because this is a former bar, but the food is very tasty. Mexican, well prepared with good sized servings. On the north side of Springville. Head south a ways and visit the Springville Museum of Art. Fantastic collection of paintings in a Spanish style large building with an interesting history. Best of all, it's free, thanks... More

My wife & I love to head down for an evening meal. We have never been disappointed at the food. It is provided quickly and service is great. We especially like the chips & salsa. Meals have plenty of food and refillable drinks. Prices are reasonable. It is a favorite of the locals.

As for economic mex its not. But I do enjoy their food. I wish the salsa wasn't so hot. That the seats were more padded, and that they had zero drinks, like sprite zero. The chips are the best in state. If you plan on nachos then you better bring 2 friends.
