The owner, Joy, is the only cook they have at the restaurant.  When orders started flowing through the door, they had to get backup!  What a good problem to have!


Joy had help from the owners of Nina's Tacos in Sycamore, Illinois and tons of friends to manage all the chaos.

If you're interested in supporting this local restaurant like the rest of Illinois, Taco-Bout-Joy's is located at 909 A Greenwood Rd, Glenview.  The wait time might be long, but it's totally worth it.  Happy eating!
