With Mexican food a speciality Sloppy Joe’s also do great steaks, burgers, wraps, pastas, salads, seafood, pizza, speciality chicken dishes and a constantly changing range of specials as well as a good range of vegetarian food.

There’s also our special Lunch Menu available until 4pm 7 days a week. Ideal for people in their lunch hour, or in a hurry. All served up from start to finish in less than 1 hour. The food is hot, fresh and tasty. Ideal if you want to eat well and time is short, and a little more inspiring than a pre-packed sandwich and a packet of crisps!

Children are catered for too with a fully inclusive meal for under £5. That’s drink, main meal and dessert. There are healthy options and a monthly drawing competition to keep them occupied.

Sloppy Joe’s is renowned for its generosity and its not just the portions. There are also special offers and meal deals throughout the week.

Add to all of this a range of fabulous desserts, full “on” licensed cocktail bar, friendly efficient staff and a welcoming atmosphere and it’s easy to see why Sloppy Joe’s has remained so popular for so long. Quite simply it has something to offer everyone. Whether you’re on your lunch hour, out on the town or dining with the family, we honestly believe there is no finer diner.

We have a 120 seater non-smoking restaurant and separate licensed Cocktail Bar. This allows us to cater for much larger parties than many other restaurants. Birthdays, stag and hen nights, leaving do’s, children’s parties, company do’s and Christmas parties, or simply a night out with 50 of your closest friends! Who needs an excuse to have a party?!

For tables of 10 or more there’s a special 2 or 3 course set menu which means there’s no confusion when it comes to settling the bill at the end. Who needs the hassle?! Just let the good times roll!

About Sloppy Joe's
Joe arrived in Colchester almost 25 years ago all the way from Texas . Thanks to his friendly nature and mouthwatering culinary skills he quickly made many new friends. Delighted by Joe’s Tex-Mex cooking they encouraged him to open a restaurant so that everyone could enjoy the same American dining experience that Joe had given them.

Word quickly spread about Joe’s friendly restaurant and mouthwatering culinary skills and people flocked to the restaurant from miles around. So popular were Joe and his cooking, and so happy was he with his new found friends, that he decided to stay in Colchester and run his new restaurant.

Over the years Joe added many more new and tasty dishes to his menu, including one extremely tasty but very messy dish, which earned him the affectionate nickname of “Sloppy Joe” amongst his friends.

Since those early beginnings nearly 25 years ago Sloppy Joe’s has served over 2 million customers making it one of the most popular and enduring restaurants in the area. It boasts a 120 seater non-smoking restaurant, separate licensed cocktail bar and probably one of the largest and most diverse menus in the area.
