Famous Since 1983

Discover Sloppy Joe’s in the High Street nestled between McDonald’s and Marks & Spencer.

Descend downstairs to discover the true taste of America. Enjoy us daily for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner or visit our bar for great American beers, cocktails and ice-cream milkshakes.

Our head-chef Jodine has created an exciting menu inspired by fresh home cooked American dishes that deliver big on flavors. We offer a wide choice of fresh salads, wraps and sandwiches, homemade pizza, burgers, steaks and our fajita’s are arguably the best and as mamma used to say proof is in the tasting.

Sloppy Joe’s opened way back in 1983 and since we have served more than 2 million guests making SJ’s the most popular restaurant in Colchester. 

Our restaurant is decorated with American memorabilia with lots to spot from our famous illuminated Manhattan night skyline, signage, pictures, character models to our collection of memorabilia.

We hope y’all come by and visit soon. 


NEW! Easy and convenient online booking.
