I love this joint.... My favorite go-to spot for Mexican food in Southern Marin. Atmosphere is quaint and folksy. Very family-oriented. Food is fresh and tasty. Price is affordable. It's often crowded and I don't think they take reservations, so get there early on a busy night. Tostadas and grilled corn are my favorites, but all the food seems yummy.

Stopped by Joe's on a recommendation from a local up at Muir Woods Park and we were pleasantly surprised. Great mex food. Our party of 9 loved everything we ordered. Good food and a fund place to hang out if you're in the area. The only problem is...we couldn't eat it all (plenty of food). Great flavors and authentic mex.

Joe's Taco Lounge is a quaint eatery located in Mill Valley with lots of interesting memorabilia plastered along the walls. The food is delicious, especially the guacamole dip and the shrimp quesadillas. If you get a chance sit at the counter and say hello to Gabriel, the owner, who is a terrific guy and a wonderful host.

Went with family for lunch. They know that I don't like salty food, but they knew I loved fish tacos. Wow, was I delighted. I had the fish taco and crab taco. Preferred the fish to the crab. Nothing was overly salty. The salsa fresca was great. The service was friendly. We all enjoyed our meals and plan to return... More

I have been here often and enjoy the low key festive atmosphere. I love New Mexico and feel like I have traveled there when enjoying this little jewel's atmosphere and food. The menu is varied and not just your typical Enchiladas. I love the Fish Tacos with Rock Fish or Snapper and fresh lime dressing tossed coleslaw. The salsa is... More

Whether you are a vegetarian or a carnivore, you will eat abundantly and satisfyingly. Prompt service, though sometimes a bit brusk. Food is consistent and delicious. Lots of local regulars.

My husband and I enjoyed the food at this great local joint. The burrito with was flavorful with the right proportion of carne to rice and cheese - it was huge so we shared. We also ordered the carnita tacos which were yummy too. The place is small and a bit noisy - lots of families when we went but... More

When we walked in from a long day of hiking and I saw that the special was my favorite Mexican meal, I knew it was going to be a wonderful experience. The atmosphere was electric, the service home-towny, and the prices right. The hot sauce shelf around the entire outside perimeter of the restaurant was a unique touch. We were... More
