My wife and I have been eating at Josefina's for more than 8 years. We haven't found any place in Tacoma as good. The chips, salsa, and bean dip show up quickly, and chips are always warm. The salsa is authentic and delicious, not a...More

Josefina's has become our favorite Mexican Restaurant in Tacoma. We are always treated very amicably by the proprietor and the food is delicious. For Father's Day, I received a coupon with an offer for a free meal. We took advantage of it and the portion...More
