“This Should be the #1 Restaurant in Maggie”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2013

As you can tell from my past reviews, we are creatures of habit. But, when you find a place like this, you know that you will not go wrong. The staff here is outstanding. They take better care of your needs than your mama probably did. It's not just a pancake house, they have it all. If you like grits, this is the place. The Cracker Barrel can not hold a candle to the grits at Joy's. The biscuits are also better and I can't forget the Pecan Waffels. Sometimes when I read some of the bad ratings of this restaurant, I just wonder what the Idiot Looks like. And I hope that you aren't thinking I'm kin to anyone here, I don't know a soul here. But I do know good food.

“Simply Delish!”

Joey's has the best coffee & pancakes EVER. We went after Thanksgiving and it was quite busy, but staff was very friendly and kids even got to see Santa! What a memorable trip.

“Excellent service and great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

We ate breakfast here on our way to Great Smoky Mountains National Park. We enjoyed it so much, we stopped again on our way home. The restaurant is directly across the street from Jonathan Creek Inn. We visited early on a Friday and a Monday morning and did not encounter any wait time. There were more than enough staff available to ensure PROMPT service. Our coffee cups were refilled before we could ask! Breakfast was excellent! Two thumbs up for the hashbrown casserole. Would definitely recommend starting your day with breakfast at Joey's
