We always go here when we want a great meal for a decent price! They have a great buffet and some of the best Menudo in town. I would highly recommend this place! It is family owned and very friendly!

Josie's is great. There is a menu or buffet to choose from. The staff are friendly. We go to Mi Casa for family events and for authentic Mexican food even when we are in a hurry.

This place rocks. I used to come here years ago but forgot about it. I had a few favorite places for enchiladas, Tortas etc. I met some friends here several months ago and was hooked. They have down.

I stopped here for lunch on a drive from Los Angeles to Sacramento. The food was fresh and delicious. Service was also great. I highly recommend this place when you're in Merced.

I stay in Merced for work regularly and always eat here at least once during my stays. I'm not big on buffets but theirs is pretty good and the menu is as well. It's family owned and I am always treated like family. I never run out of food, drink or smiles. It's across the street from the Holiday Express,... More

Recommended to us by the staff at the Hampton and they were not wrong in doing so. We opted for the Dinner Buffet and there was no restriction on quantity or choice. Good friendly helpful staff. Recommended and don't be put off by the dark outside.

Stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Merced which was safe, clean, & comfortable. They suggested the restaurant across the street. We were exhausted from traveling so we hit the buffet. It was fabulous. Hit the spot. Great & friendly service. Would highly recommend.
