Reviews for Joel's Restaurant

Hidden gem in the Arnett Benson neighborhood. Friendly waitstaff, quick service. The salsa was fresh, tasty with just a little kick. Chips were crispy and not overly greasy. Aguas frescas were yummy (limonada and horchata). Food portions were just the right size and priced right. Will definitely stop by here again.

I wouldn't even give this place one star! It's not the same at all, the carne gusada has NO flavor! (I couldn't eat it) the time wait SUCKS 15 min just for 2 burritos and a pint of hot sauce (came out to $17) no wonder why the place looks dead ‍ yeah I'd rather go to Jalisco

Sweetie and I were in Lubbock again and searched for a restaurant on Google. We decided on Joel's because we weren't looking for anything heavy to eat and Joel's looked like it had diner style food. We found our way to the restaurant (which is located in a somewhat residential neighborhood) and parked across the street because it's small parking lot was full (a good sign, right?). We went in and found out it was a Mexican style restaurant with a nice little buffet. Sweetie full review
