About Joey's Mexican Grill

Joey's story begins during his college experience. Joey would visit college buddies south of the border, in Southern California and other parts of the southwest. The foods he ate were delicious and filled with southwest flavors. Joey wanted others to have the same experience so he created Joey's. We think that everyone should have had friends with nicknames like "Four-Eyed Freddie" and "Loose-Lip Paulie" when they were kids. Maybe it's just a kid thing, but we thought they would make ordering from our menu fun. We have a wide variety of items on our menu from traditional Mexican Dishes to California Style Burritos. There is no one more fanatical about fresh food than Joey. You can't have great food if it's not fresh. That's why Joey doesn't own a freezer and prepares everything fresh daily just for you. Joey's chicken and steak are specially marinated giving them wonderful flavor. Every Joey's is designed to make your dining experience fun, fast and easy. The music is just another part of that experience. Nothing special, just tunes we hope you enjoy. The paintings are just a bunch of guys named Joey who just happen to be from around the world.
