Tried out Joya for the first time for my birthday luncheon. Nice restaurant, hostess not so great or friendly, but the wait staff was very good. We shared the Joya salad (just ok), shortrib tacos (the meat alittle dry), excellent brussel sprouts (anything with bacon is good), chorizo corn dogs (sausage was dry and hard), shrimp w/ sausage was very good, gacamole w/veg chips (excellent chips & gacamole), and finished off with the chocolate cake w/bananas and coconut ice cream & the churros w/chocolate sauce (excellent!) light and very crispy! We all decide we would definitely go back to try more dishes. A definite place to go to on University Ave in Palo Alto.
