I’ve been eating here for over 11 years and it’s amazing each time. Hands down my favorite Mexican restaurant, and one of my favorite overall. Everything is good - chimichangas (the best I’ve had), burritos, carne asada, margaritas, you can’t go wrong! Service is excellent, especially from Raul and Mario. They’re social distancing, wearing masks and shields, have a good sized/multi-level patio and a nice 2-sided covered tent (i.e., legal) in the parking lot. Heaters everywhere, but after a few margaritas, you won’t even remember you’re supposed to be cold! :)

Very nice atmosphere. They do a good job with the Covid precautions. The service was excellent. I liked that they had a bit more than the usual Mexican food choices, eg., Pollo en Mole and Arroz con Pollo. The quality of the food was very good and the food arrived pretty promptly and hot. I recommend reservations on weekends.

First time here and I must say it was a great experience. Food was amazing, especially the table side guacamole. I asked the waiter what drinks he recommended and he was dead on. I will definitely be coming back. Francisco (waiter) was very helpful and attentive. What a great experience.

Joselito’s has been our go to place during Covid times! We love the food, the drinks and the service. Although they are very strict about time limits so make sure you’re cautious about the time. We kind of felt kicked out last time but it is what it is during these times. We just decided to pick up our girls night on a different day! Good family spot too

Quickly seated in colorful patio. Had off menu recommendations that were spot on by attentive, friendly waiter.
Good food and we enjoyed our dining experience. Only downside was the beer we wanted was not in stock but arrived as we finished up.
Will recommend and come again.

My husband and I have been going to Joselito's for over ten years and we always get great service and the food is always very fresh and delicious. They offer specials of the day and we are always amazed on how delicious they are. When we recommend this restaurant to friends and relatives, they are always satisfied.

The soup was served luke-warm. They reheated and brought it back and it still was not hot. The crispy taco was not crispy, soggy on the side that was laying on the plate. I won't be going back to this restaurant.

Service was good and efficient. We were glad to be able to support a local business. Sadly, the food was not as good as we hoped. :( My boyfriend is Mexican and I am "Mexican" by association. Lol. We are both tough critics when it comes to Mexican food.

With the pandemic raging it’s hard to fault anything. The service was a bit slower than I might have liked it to be, but still faster than a lot of places these days. I’ve always felt that the people working there really care, and that’s about the best thing you can say about any restaurant service.

This was the first time I've dined in since covid. They had appropriate precautions. Masks, signs, patio only seating and a plexiglass barrier at the hostess station
As always the experience was overall very pleasant. The food was delicious and we were attended to appropiately at the table. We ordered the nachos . They can piled high with all the good stuff and I asked for extra red sauce that was brought with the meal. The chicken was tender, the cheese was good gooey gooey and stretchy. There was just the right amount of guacamole and sour cream. The beans are on the bottom so it took some eating to get to them. I enjoyed the pickled jalapenos and carrots as well. We had a slight wait upon arrival as the hostess was also taking a long phone order, however once we were seated service was quick.iIm lookong forward to going again. .
