I ordered the Carne Asada burrito. It was huge! More than I could eat. Enjoyed every bite!
Makes me wish I could have one right no. Wonderfully seasoned, with tender meat. I'm a burrito snob, and this one rated right up there. Can't wait to go back.

Fast service, friendly staff.

Locals line up for this Mexican Restaurant. It is on a side street so they don't have much visibility but the place is packed. Monday through Saturday, open for breakfast and closed by 5. Cash or check only. Order at the counter and they call your name when the food is ready. And the food is fabulous. Best Mexican food I have ever had.

I don't want to leave the wrong impression - Joel's is just fine. You give your order at the counter and wait to pick it up. There are tables both inside and out, so you frequently have to stake a claim for one before you get your order. I don't like that much, but "it is what it is."

The food is no better than average and to me, at least, lacks authenticity. The portions are big and the prices are cheap, a great combination for local approval. There is a lot of that for Joel's and I'm glad - Joel is a genuinely nice person.

You know it's good when there is a line outside the door and the locals work their schedules around the hours of operation of the restaurant. Come hungry and enjoy!

Loved Joel's - go for breakfast...amazingly creative breakfast menu. Coffee bar with expresso machine and the works. Everyone so friendly and nice. Suggest anyone visiting Sandpoint to visit Joel!
