Unfussy fixture for Mexican-American fare breakfast through dinner, plus full bar & spacious patio.- Google
"The Bean tacos that I order were cold the pop was good."
"My all time favorite of Joe's is the Chili Con Queso."

Run fast and far from this place. It started as a possible good food experience then came the food and it was a disaster. The 3 tortilla appetizer for $6 is exactly that. 3 Tortilla chips filled with chili con carny and topped with mozzarella. Not nachos supreme like i thought. After finishing the appetizer the server said she would put in my burger order now. She comes back after a few minutes and asks if I would like another type of bread on my burger then explains the buns are frozen and is regular bread ok. I said yes. The burger arrives mashed down with no flavor and is about 1/4 inches think. Very disappointing. The only thing good about the experience was the French fries, the water and the free wifi.

This is one of my favorite restaurants. I love taco Tuesday, it's a great value and quick lunch. The fresh salsa is perfect on many of the dishes. They have made so many improvements since the new owner took over. You should stop in and give them a try.

If you want Mexican food this is not the place for you, the food was horrible! ! It was fake mexican food with no real flavor. The chips were stale and the Sala had a horrible after taste. The tortillas were cold and had an unusual taste. We couldn't eat the food, the only thing decent was the water. We had to go to another restaurant. I don't recommend it!

WORST RESTAURANT IVE EVER BEEN TO! first i got a water glass that had scum in it, my friend went and complained about it for me and the manager said "well she was out side and things get in peoples cups". even though i was in side. then i asked them if they could make a simple just cheese burrito and the waiter came back out and said " NO we cant make that". so i asked to talk to the manager again and he said "we only make been and cheese or beef and cheese, sorry". and they refused to do it. so when i got it the food was cold and not good at all! then i asked if i could have ice cream and they said there ice cream machine was broken and for a 4 star restaurant they didnt even change there bath rooms lights when they burned out. THEY NEED TO BE SHUT DOWN!

Used to be a good place to eat. The new owner has decided he knows better than 30-40 years of history with lines out the door at the old place. He has changed the meat and not for the better. Raised prices and lower the quality. Used to travel from noblesville 5-6 times a year. Haven't been back in over 6 months. Spent $40 and drove 30 minutes one way to find out it isn't even close to the same restaurant my wife and I have enjoyed for over 30 years. I will eat Taco Bell before I will drive to joe's again. You might as well change the name of the place because it is clearly false advertising to claim this place is Acapulco Joe's.

I heard good things about this place in the 90s, then bad things about it recently. One day I was heading home from work and decided to try it myself. I'm glad I did. The food was great. I ordered the Chicken Fiesta to go. Chicken was well cooked, cheese melted on top, and I got chips with it as well. Looking back at the menu, I'm not sure why, but they were good as well. Furthermore, this place is not short on value. I got easily enough food for 2+ people for under $10. Don't listen to the negative reviews, they're likely from long ago. If you walk by this place in the morning, you'll smell what I'm talking about. Try it.

Meat tastes like it's from a can. overpriced given the quality. On par with Taco Bell, except it's a $40 date. And that's not counting the Kaopectate you need to need to pick up at the local CVS on the way home

Gavin thank you when I cooked hamburgers I had certain spices I cooked it with. I was one of few cooks there at Joe's before Mark and Marcia sold to grant would go back to work there but was told grant isn't hiring back old employees. Ive heard some great things about the new owner and not so great things. Just hope Joe's can hold up to what it use to be 20 years ago
