Doing a great job in providing an enjoyable Covid dining experience with their various outdoor seating areas. Really enjoyed the Carne Asada Burrito and the Guac, while my liked the beer-battered pork tacos as well.

Fun family owned restaurant. The only negative was that our Server Juan kept reminding us of an 80min time limit due to Covid. Literally, if he visited our table 8x, then we heard about the time limit, regardless of open tables or lack of a line on Thursday evening. We stayed close to 2 hours and upon leaving there were plenty of open tables. So why the constant reminders?

This was the first place I went to after the reopening of Los Angeles and I had the best experience. Even with the 80 min time limit they give you the best service. At no point did we feel rushed to have our meal. Food and drinks were great!

We love Joselito's! The food, the service, the margaritas - everything is always excellent. They have done such a good job adhering to all restrictions on their patio. This is the only place we have trusted to go to during the pandemic because we can see how diligent they are with their social distancing and cleaning.

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.
