The chips and salsa are good but everything else is average at best: a bit bland, smallish portions, and not much of a menu. We've eaten here twice now, once at the old location on the north side of Center Street, and now at the new location on the south side where Provo Art and Frame used to be. Unfortunately,... More

It use to be really good but it has gone down hill. Sad because the finally have a bigger place. We use to go all the time but the last several times it hasn't been worth going back for.

Great service but they got out order wrong and the Crab enchiladas were bland. Good chips and salsa.

I have ate at Joe's several times and the food is excellent. Waiters on top of their game in taking care of you. Price is not to high just about right. So if your looking for some good Mexican food look no further.

Passed by this restaurant on Center Street and it looked nice so we stopped in for lunch. Very glad we did and we will definitely be back. Colorful, clean and great food. They have a lot of seating room inside, including some booths along the windows. Service was exceptional. Very friendly and prompt. They offer lunch specials until 4:00 pm,... More

My husband and I have this theory that there is a range of Mexican food. Like, you have poor food-which is a REALLY tiny percentage of restaurants, and then the average ones-the majority, and then the really good ones are also rare. This one goes in the middle, but towards the low side. I wouldn't go back.

We were so disappointed with the drinks we had. Over priced and tasted poorly. The chips and salsa were good though!

I visited Joe Vera's at their new location (they moved across the street). The food is excellent. The fresh chips and salsa is the best around. The new dining area is very nice, with a private room for larger groups. The staff is very friendly and great.

This is one of my favorite Mexican Restaurants, and I am a Mexican food snob! My parents came from Arizona and my mother was raised by a mom from Mexico. We like it authentic. I love the Chile Verde Platter and can really order about anything from their menu. Very friendly servers help you feel like coming back. Give this... More

We only go here when our sister-in-law is in town, because it is her favorite Mexican food in the restaurant. The food is okay, but nothing that screams for us to come back.
