    The waiter hardly ever came by to ck on us. The food rcvd was incorrect and was not exactly what we ordered yet we waited a very long time to place the order as well as to rcv the food that decided not to return it. This used to be one of our favorite places but we’re not going back again.

    My husband and I used to go to Joselitos back when they had a restaurant on Magnolia in NoHo/Burbank. We were not disappointed 35 years later. Yummy food and good value. It appeared that only one waiter was covering the whole restaurant. He was good but no one is that good to be able to wait on everyone and include a check back. The check back should happen around three minutes after the food arrives when the waitperson returns to the table and says, “Do you have everything you need?” That is the sign of five star service.

    One of our favorite Mexican Restaurants. I especially like their Margaritas and the Chicken Mole for an entree. The service was good, but tends to let down when crowded.

    Besides the food one of the reasons we like Joselito's is the service and the staff. Always excellent. This day in particular, was Father's day which was right smack in the middle of the covid. There was customer spacing(although it was not that busy) and all the waiters had plastic face coverings. Menus were by phone. So all and all, the staff again has risen to the extra challenges of the pandemic. Its just a well run operation. AND...the food and margaritas were excellent as always!

    I felt so bad for the servers. Masks and face shields seems seems overboard. So uncomfortable for then and hard to hear them. I don't like having to scan a menu and they were clearly told to resist giving an actual menu even upon request. This may all be regulation, but it still sucks. Everyone was very sweet and efficient despite their discomfort. The food was good, and it was great to sit at a table with other humans near by, to dine in public ~ almost normal.

    our waiter took forever to come to our table.. the chile rellenos were dipped in egg batter which had no flavor and was undercooked.. in a horrible sauce that tasted like flour mixed with canned tomato sauce.. the relleno itself was fine;.. would have been better without the sauce and dipped into a better batter and fried until crispy.. it was mushy with no flavor.. disappointing..

    This is our favorite Mexican restaurant in the LA area. I love their pollo en mole and all the entrees that we've tried are at least above average. It can get crowded at dinnertime and noisy, but it's popular for a reason.

    Mix used for margaritas is awful. Very acidic. Very tart. Tastes like concentrate. Sent first one back because it tastes like salty water. Second one was only slightly better. Service is very good. Food is OK.

    We love this family restaurant serving a wide variety of tex-mex, cal-mex, and "real Mexican" food. Tasty selections include carnitas, tacos (including a sampler), enchiladas, burritos and fajitas. Sometimes they get really busy and service is a bit slow, but this is a place we will visit often.
