I love the patio! I had appetizers and drinks in the early evening and they had live music and they were fantastic!

Josefina's has an excellent red enchilada! I love Mexican food, so we went there to accommodate everyone in our group. Some had sandwiches and soup, while some of us had Mexican food.

They were understandably very quiet when I went in on a Tuesday morning, but the service was very abrupt and not at all friendly. Still worth a visit for the food and atmosphere if you're not focused on pleasantries with your server.

Average food and poor service. Felt like we were a bother to the staff. Had to find our own silverware and water. Our older waitress, with the short haircut, seems very stressed based upon her comments to us.
