Joann’s Fine Foods is a South Congress neighborhood spot, a new take on the American diner, and a vacation for locals and tourists alike. Open early and late at the Austin Motel, Joann’s is a welcome respite for early birds and night owls, outlaws and in-laws, all ways always.

The menu is a tribute to diner culture featuring Tex-Mex favorites and California inspired healthy options. Classic breakfasts, milkshakes, enchiladas, fish tacos on house-made tortillas, colorful salads, daily juices, a pecan-burning grill, and an impressive mezcal collection all find a home here. There’s something for everyone – when in doubt, just say “meet me at Joann’s.”

All Ways Welcome. So Close Yet So Far Out.

Charming place. Excellent food. Good drinks. They followed all COVID guidelines as far as I could tell, we never felt like we were at risk, although we did stick to outdoor seating.

Sat outside in a steamy night but had a great time. Social distancing very much in effect with every other table occupied. Very good service and food!

This was our first visit to Joann’s and we absolutely loved it! The ambiance on the patio was bright and airy with a tropical flare. Jessica our server was AMAZING, she was warm and a wealth of knowledge. Every item she suggested was delicious and a great representation of her descriptions. The food was flavorful, creative and simply satisfying. We will definitely be back to visit Jessica and the rest of the amazing staff!

The food was fresh and amazing. We loved the biscuits and chipotle butter. The rice bowl with redfish was tasty. The chile relleno was equally good. Unfortunately, the service was missing. Our server seemed a bit let down that we weren’t drinking alcohol.

First time diners for my husband’s birthday. Hash brown nachos. I dream of them! The food is top notch and reasonably priced. It’s a refreshing alternative to the fancy “New Austin” restaurants. Joann’s just became one of our favorite places.

I actually went there on back to back days. Once by myself and once with my wife. Both days the food was great! Drinks were good but a little pricey. This place will become a regular place for us to frequent due to the food being so good along with a good mix of texmex options. I highly recommend Joann’s!

Wasn’t my first time here, but it’s great for brunch or dinner. Also, nice that it’s one of the only places in the area open till midnight. The options on the menu hits anyone’s craving or tastebuds. Definitely a spot you gotta stop in!

Love the decor so vintage! Seating inside is limited but very quiet. Got a table towards the door so the people watching was good. VERY large portions so not sure if it was me or it didn't have any pizazz. Overall I will return but maybe I should've gotten something Spanish/mexican vs a patty melt (still good).

Great spot for Sunday brunch! Love the outdoor patio and eclectic vibe..Migas are amazing. Service was pretty terrible last time, but I think our server had been over served the night before..she was really dragging! We could see her yawning repeatedly and she was just kind of out of it. The manager and a few other waiters stepped in to help, which was great- but it is generally not a place you can pop in and out of. Service seems to be reliably slow. Food and atmosphere make it worth it!

Waiter was impatient and rude. Food and coffee were quite good,
But over priced for what it was. The acoustics in that restaurant are deafening. I ask the hostess if she was afraid of losing her hearing working there and her response was “what?”. Enough said. They have subtle tweaks to make before they go from good to great....so I think they have promise. I think a more attentive and charismatic waiter would have made a big difference in our overall experience.
