    Love coming here when I'm in the mood for Mexican food. I love their chips and salsa (that's a big selling point for me) and carnitas nachos. I've liked all the food I've tried here and will continue to come back. Great neighborhood spot to grab a bite to eat. Upper level is good for bigger groups. Reservations recommended for peak dining time.

    As usual Armando and staff provided outstanding service. My daughter evidently mentioned to Armando that it was my Birthday. At the end of the night the crew provided me with a unusual and excellent birthday gift that I had never seen before. It was awesome!

    The staff is very friendly and know us by name. The service is outstanding and Armando or Ramon know our usual drinks & usual plates. I drink cadillac margarita's in quite a few restaurants in the Greater LA area, but Joselito's has the best by far with an excellent kick.

    Every time I walk in to the restaurant I get a sense of what it must be like on the set of "cheers". Everyone that works there is friendly and always greeted by a smile. The food is good, I go for the service which keeps me coming back.

    Love Joselito's - the carnitas are the best, crunchy on the outside, tender inside. The staff is super friendly and go out of their way to make sure our orders are to our liking and we have everything we want. The Cadillac Margaritas are the BEST IN TOWN! Only one thing would make this fave the bomb! - a better selection of wine, not the screw top varieties!

    We love Joselito's in Montrose. Discovered it about 2 years ago after we moved to the area, and we never go anywhere else for good Mexican food and service.

    Chips and salsa and the food was all good. I had the grilled fish tacos and it was good. Friend of mine had the chicken picado and the sauce and flavor was good and we believe that the chicken need some marinated with their sauce. Overall it was a chill Mexican restaurant .

    Nice location, nice atmosphere, friendly service, a bit slow for my taste. I had fajitas, the steak was overcooked and a bit dry, the shrimps were good.

    Armando is an outstanding waiter! We can walk in & he will remember our drinks & foods we usually get. They have one of the best Cadillac Margaritas you can find anywhere & the Habanero chile is excellent.

    Joselito's has been our "go to" Mexican restaurant for several years. They are consistent in all ways--good food, great service, nice outdoor seating, etc. Lalo is the best waiter on the planet! It is a warm, comfortable, tasty place to have a meal. Highly recommend!
