The whole experience was great and this restaurant lived up to the good reviews on Trip advisor. I would recommend this one for dinner. We had the fish tacos and 1/4 chicken. Great sauce options to choose for the chicken.

No visit to Santa Teresa is complete with out getting some fish tacos at chicken Joe's. This little roadside restaurant does up the tacos and chicken right. The owner personally caught the Dirado we ate in our tacos and his wife cooks them all up with loving care. Our only regret is that we can't eat here more often.

We came here for dinner. We had the fish tacos and a quarter chicken meal. One serving of fish tacos came with four tacos and a small side salad. The fish tacos were very good and the side salad was delicious. Chicken was also very good. The best part with dessert. Do not miss the banana cream pie – it... More

everything from the service to the music to the atmosphere was amazing . We couldn't decide on which sides we wanted so they just gave us both at no extra cost..amazing sauces , the peppers were grown right out in the open. Great value and never pushed or tried to upsell us on drinks or extras

We had fish tacos which were super tasty, but we got to talking with the staff a lot and it sounds like the ceviche would have also been excellent. We saw a guy bring in the fish while we were there are were salivating over it. But the people who work here are so nice and happy to talk to... More

We love Chicken Joe's. The owners are super friendly & helpful with all things Santa Teresa. Their chicken is absolutely some of the best I've ever had! So many good sauces too! While in Santa Teresa for a week I think we ate there at least 5 times.

So while drive no down the main road in search of food, we say a dozen cafe's on both sides of the road, then one in particular caught our eyes, Chicken Joe's. Clean, I mean immaculate for a roadside cafe, the staff was really friendly, and personable, they couldn't do enough for you. The rotisserie Chicken was moist and flavorful,... More

This was a great stop that I'm glad we didn't miss! Rotisserie chicken was great based on members of my family and I loved the fish tacos...so fresh and healthy tasting. The gluten free chocolate cake topped off a great meal. The owner was super nice and made sure we had everything we needed, we'll be back someday for sure!

The best fish and chicken tacos you can find in the area. We had the great pleasure of meeting the chef at the local organic market (of course the only type of produce he and his wife will use on their food) and it was through our conversation that we learned of this wonderful place. Don't miss this opportunity by... More
