Joann's Fine Foods
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.”

Wonderful, my colleagues from Minneapolis loved it so much and thanked me for the recommendation.
Excellent! We ordered toe queso, the patty melt with fries and the tinge chalupa with rice and beans. All of it was delicious and lots of flavor and we are excited to visit again soon.
Always my favorite place to take visitors!
Good food great pancakes
Loved everything about it… food, service, ambiance!
The food and service, for the price, was disappointing.
The kitchen sent out two plates fully 5 minutes before the rest were ready, so it's either eat while everyone else watches, or let your food get cold.
Our waiter messed up one of our party's order. We had to send back a dish that got messed up, so that person had to wait another 10 minutes for the correct order to come up, with just a hurried apology.
The chicken mole was dry and the rice tasted undercooked and a bit crunchy. It's a lot of spend on food that was so underwhelming.
Always a great experience
Awesome food and place. Never disappoints.
Loved the ambiance outdoors! Drinks and server was amazing
Ridiculously pricey for what the food is. Ordered nachos and it came with five large chips. Then it was mostly lettuce. We ate elsewhere after that. I still think its a great ambiance, or a great place to get a drink.
Such a gorgeous little diner and the food was absolutely delicious! Everything from the shrimp and octopus ceviche, and the huevos rancheros, to the red corn pancakes. We'll definitely be back.
A wonderful addition to South Congress. Loved Joann’s Nachos.
What a gem! Reminds me of old Austin. Quentin’s Service was friendly and responsive. Another server suggested that I get the Relleno which to be honest typically wouldn’t be my first choice… just not a huge fan. But I decided to go with it and I was pleasantly surprised. Sooo good. Plus the refried black beans are rice were really good too. Love the small touch’s around the restaurant to create a retro feel. Will definitely come back!
Great food. Extremely loud. Waiter took forever to take our order. And never checked back on us. I still gave him a good tip but I’m sorry I did
Great austin vibes and delicious food!
We come here a lot and the food is seriously the freshest around you can get. They have options on the menu that aren't heavy, fried, and gross; great no-meat options as well - especially the avocado tacos! Service is great, vibe is great, cocktails and agua frescas are awesome. Go here!
We've been to Joann's 3 or 4 times, and the quality of the food on previous visits wasn't anywhere near as good this time. I had the hashbrown nachos, which were really soggy and smothered in sour cream (too much of a good thing!) The other person in my party got the pecan grilled adobo chicken, which somehow ended up flavorless and dry. We'll stick to their drinks from now on.
The ceviche was excellent. The torta was just OK, although the server highly recommended it. A good drink menu. Service was pretty slow but that seems to be par for the course everywhere post-pandemic.
One entree arrived a full 20 minutes prior to the other, so it was a very awkward meal. Overall service on patio was not good
Great food and drinks and location
Food is always good. Drinks are unique with a great selection. Perfect seating outdoor for S Congress vibes.
Great date spot or friend spot, outdoors seating with a view and the food and drinks on point as always. Lots of flavor in the menu, fresh ingredients and options. Love the ceviche and snacks!
Loved our experience at Joann’s! We scootered down South Congress and enjoyed Lolita sunrises,
Margaritas and enchiladas with a good view for people watching! Great food and fun service!
The food is simply divine ....
The staff is nice but put all the work on our wonderful but over taxed sever Danny.... as our bus boy was too much attitude to clear our empty plates .
But the excellent food made up for that lil thing
Delicious Tex-Mex … friendly attentive staff … excellent Margarita!
Friendly and efficient staff; DELICIOUS food, quick delivery from order to table. Reasonably priced. Will definitely go back!
The margaritas were completely watered down. And their queso was absoloutely tasteless. We got up and left because the queso was so bad. The service was good, but they need to bring their A game with the food. I use to love this restaurant. What happened?
Casual but fantastic!! Delicious fresh food! Great outside seating!
The service was bad and they are not friendly
Really enjoyed the chicken mole enchiladas, and the frozen margs!
Joann's is probably my favorite restaurant in SoCo. There are plenty of options for vegetarians and the food is always fresh and tastes so good. The rice bowl with tofu is my favorite. Their Happy Hour has some great specials.
Food is amazing and service is EXCELLENT
A little overpriced yet good!!!
Always a fantastic experience at Joann’s. You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu!!
I love this place!! The white bean hummus is so GOOD!! Love the Avocado Tacos.
Love love love Joann's. Their chicken fried steak is amazing. Mexican martini was a new drink on their cocktail this list and it was delish. Great service and space.
Always great food and service. This is a favorite spot of ours.
Great casual spot for a special twist on Mexican food. Lovely patios, front and back!
Very bad service over menu misrepresentation, then incorrect order, zero follow up with Server. Won't be back.
Outdoor dining perfection in the time of the Corona Virus.
