Being from San Diego, my expectations for good Mexican food is high and Joel’s always comes through when I need a good Mexican dish. Service has always been friendly and have never had a bad or even mediocre meal there. Highly recommended!

Because there is no real good authentic Mexican food to be had in Sandpoint, Joel's is about the best you get. It's not bad, but by the standards of any area that has good Mexican food, it would be considered average. You do get large...More

We wanted a quick lunch and decided to go for Mexican food. Our expectation was low, and were we ever surprised! The fish tacos are outstanding! No wonder it got so busy at lunch time!

Mexican at its best. Poppers are super good, prices are great, portions are huge, service is always with a smile! This is probably the best restaurant in town

Joels is not only the "go to" restaurant but the "went to" restaurant as in 5 times last week. The only complaint is why they're not open Sunday. Yum yum!

We have been regulars to Joel's with every Sandpoint visit! Delicious burritos every time. Fun outdoor seating, pup friendly, and always sure to fill our bellies. Highly recommend.

While taking a morning walk around beautiful downtown Sandpoint, we came upon a neat outdoor eating spot and had to stop for a breakfast burrito. Yum!
