Small but cozy. Good food and friendly staff. More than ample drink selection, both non alcohol and alcohol. Will return and tell others.

A friend and I went here for lunch yesterday. We've been here before and we both love it! I had the Chimichanga. (One of my favorite foods in the world!) I gotta tell you, they don't disappoint. It was the biggest one I've ever seen. It's the same price as others at other places, but the amount is unbelievable. I... More

Great food and service. Nice bar with big screen TV's in the dining area plus a separate bar next door. Try the Dirty Taco's, you will not be disappointed.

Great service and excellent food!!!!! The grilled chicken burrito was big enough to take half of it and it was delicious. Will definitely return several times before we leave town. Highly recommend it.

Was traveling down Hwy 99 and pulled off at Atwater for lunch. Just happened to find Josies and I am glad I did. I ordered the shredded beef burrito. Wow, it was excellent. The beef was very flavorful. As a self proclaimed salsa snob, their salsa is just average. When the waitress brought out the burrito, I told her she... More

Everything cooked in oil (haha everything) is nasty. The smell of the place should tell you that the food is cooked in 6 month old oil. The only good service comes from the bartenders, NOT the servers in the restaurant.

Stopped last week for lunch after shopping in that area. The restaurant is located next to the ATT store. The restaurant looks appealing inside and out. The staff seemed friendly. I ordered a fajita salad. I was served the standard tortilla chips, salsa, and hot carrots to begin with, all was very good. I was hoping the main meal would... More
