I can't say enough about how awesome Joel's is! We visit Sandpoint every summer from Canada, and Joel's is always our first stop when we pull into town. The tacos are super cheap and quite large (most can only manage two). Make sure you order...More

We ordered the chicken asada and steak asada tacos for the whole family and they were AMAZING! Best chicken tacos we've ever had. Hearty and filling, bigger than the standard street tacos most places serve. We will be returning for sure!

Huge selection of items, all done very well. The girls at the counter could not of been more helpful. This is kind of semi-fast food - place your order and wait for them to call your name. There was a sign that said the wait...More

Hands down the best Mexican food I've ever eaten! Fresh and delicious! Vegetarian and vegan options available and are also delicious!!! Friendly staff, fast service, and delicious food at a reasonable price! Limited seating...better to take your food to go.

For some reason, from other reviews I assumed this was a sit down restaurant, so I was disappointed that it is breakfast and lunch fast food with limited seating. Service was friendly and the space overall is small. Newbies get crowded at the counter area...More

This place is quaint and clean and the food is very good. I loved the shrimp taco. The chicken asada taco, enchiladas and burritos were all very good as well. The prices were very reasonable. This is a great find!
