We go to Joy's every couple weeks. It's a little friendly family joint. The place can get crowded, with challenging parking, but the foood is delicious with authentic Mexican flavors. We will keep going back.

We wanted to find a place outside of the casinos to have breakfast since we were heading home. I did a local search and found this place. They had very good reviews so we figured we would try it. The parking is tight and the place is somewhat small but we sat right down and a friendly waitress greeted us.... More

Even though the ownership appears to change on a regular basis the standard of food preparation remains stable. Parking is never a problem even though the seats are all filled.

Went there on a Saturday afternoon. Not much parking in front. Place does not look like much, however the food is EXCELLENTE ! I had a steak omelette, which came with great homefries and toast. It was great and gynormous. All 3 of us had great meals that didn't repeat on us later on. Less than a mile from MS.... More

Had the huevos rancheros and they were great. Homemade red sauce was a little spicy but worked best with the dish. It's located right next to the Norwich spa and maybe a mile from Mohegan. Service was good and prices were low.

Good prices and large portions. Service is spotty. Interior needs work. Good basic food at a good price with breakfast being their main meal.

Searched on Tripadvisor for restaurants near Foxwoods, but not wanting to pay high casino prices.Seat yourself and then let them take care of you. Your coffee cup never goes empty! Excellent food and priced fairly. Will go back if ever in the area again.
