“Good breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

We sat at the counter as every seat in the restaurant was filled. There is no push to eat, pay, leave. The food is served hot and well cooked. Its plain, simple and filling. It may not look glamorous but it is tasty and filling and the service was prompt, welcoming and polite. Did I say that the food was good? I am getting hungry now just thinking about it.

“A great breakfast in a warm, inviting atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Joy's is a wonderful, local restaurant with an eclectic menu. It is owned by the Flores family (Joy was the previous owner) and it seems like most of the family is there working. They serve really great breakfast - traditional and Mexican!!! Lunch and dinner is the same - traditional American food and really, really good authentic Mexican food.
The service is great and everybody is super friendly (including the other diners).

“Breakfast joy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

One of the best diner breakfasts I've had! I was lured in by the picture of the Spanish casserole on the menu, and it did not disapoint. My partner had the hash breakfast, also a good choice. Servers were smiley and helpful. And the prices were very fair! There were a steady stream of customers, even on a weekday late morning. Do try it!

“Great Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Excellent food, wait staff so friendly and helpful, food delicious, a bargain!!! They keep filling your coffee and do it with a smile. Most of the local residents eat here so you know it is delicious. Try it... Easy and fast if you need a quick meal or you can sit and relax. You are not rushed.

“Good Place for Breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

I found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and reviews are pretty much dead on. Place is clean, servers are very nice and very attentive. Food was good and reasonably priced. I would stop in again when in the area.
