Great chips/salsa

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... read more

Best chips and salsa I've ever had at a restaurant. However I got the fajitas and they were very bland. No peppers either. Rice was bland. Good tortillas. Might try again but undecided.

I had driven by Joe Bandito's a thousand times, and we finally went there a few months ago. Let's just say, we've been back almost weekly since. We live in Orem too, so, it's kind of out of the way, but it's totally worth it. I absolutely LOVE this place! The chips and salsa are AMAZING, always hot chips, with... More

The chips and salsa are delicious. The best salsa I've ever had. The chimichungas were delicious! The service was exceptional. I can't wait to go back!

We stopped in late one afternoon because we felt like Mexican food, and were not disappointed. The place doesn't look like much on the outside, but that is deceiving. ... The chips and salsa were good, and our entrees were excellent. My wife always gets steak fajitas at Mexican restaurants, and this place served a higher portion of meat than... More

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

Surprised at the fact Utah has such a big Hispanic population. That helped with the flavors in this places dishes. Great house made salsa too. Plus they have alcohol.
