We used to go to Josefina's a lot, but haven't gone in a couple of years. The great bean dip that used to accompany the pre-dinner chips and salsa wasn't quite as yummy as it used to be. Service was fine and food was ok....More

Great environment for a business meeting. Food is good. Lots of choices for seating depending on group size. Food was hot and delicious...good selection and great value in daily lunch specials. Suggest calling ahead to check schedule as they aren't open for lunch every day....More

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
