Love the soup when you have a cold! Omg. Everything there esp the people are the best. The food is not expensive. It is loud and family like in all ways. The place gets crowded for a good reason....it is great!!!! Love it. Loads of hot sauce. Fun for a family or friends place.

Staying in Mill Valley we looked to Trip Advisor to help us find a local Mexican restaurant. Joe's was minutes away and the menu fit the bill. Funky decore, we sat at the counter. The location must have been a dinner years ago. We had black bean soup and carnitas tacos. Classic chips and salsa with guacamole too. Everything was... More

I was housesitting in Mill Valley and stumbled upon this place. I sat down at the U shaped bar area, which was pretty cool. There is also normal seating, btw. My veggie burrito, mojado style, was very good. But I can't get over that they charged me $2.50 for chips/salsa. I guess I take for granted that chips/salsa are free... More

The staff is on top of things, the food is great- and, it's family friendly. Joe's is an all around great Mexican style cantina!

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
