Joselito's has been a part of the Montrose scenery for years. A diverse menu of choices, good location, and you can park behind it. It is a family run business that has two locations. The other location ,and in my opinion the better option, is their Tujunga location. Parking is harder at this location, but you can park on the... More

Always a busy happening place but amazing classics and some fun specials like Avocado Burrito and Lobsters! Cocktails are also amazing Parking can be a pain but that's Montrose.

Joselito's is a small dark Mexican restaurant located in Montrose Village. It may not be the best in the area but the food is always reliable. The dishes I've tried have never been too hot or spicy but with just enough flavor to keep me satisfied.

Good Mexican food...not spectacular, but good! The prices are good and they even offer a kids eat free on Sunday (I think). The staff are all super nice! They are supposed to have the best Margaritas around, but I do t think so; they are good, but not all THAT! The place is clean and I would recommend this place... More

I really like Mexican food and there are a lot of local restaurants that pretend to be Mexican. Joselito's seems to cater to the geriatric crowd. Nothing is spicy. Other than that, the good is good. Large portions. Unfortunately even their hot salsa is mild. I wouldn't go back there with someone younger than 70.

Busy but overall good food good service. Like the burritos make sure it's wet. I add sour cream yum. I like the chili Colorado meat. Not so much drinks I always get a headache I keep forgetting to ask for patron. Cuz whatever they use is cheap. Service is okay nothing to brag about.

They have some really delicious food. I have never gone wrong with anything I have ordered but the prices do seem a bit high but it has not stopped me from returning.
