It was a slow day at Josefina's and just a little too cool to eat outside. We were told to "sit anywhere" and I must admit we moved twice for various reasons. The special of the day Pastrami Sandwich was fairly decent with tasty sauerkraut and spicy brown mustard although the meat filling was underwhelming and the potato salad tasted like all salads out of a large plastic commercial tub. The Chilaquiles with red pork was delicious (although the fried strips of tortillas were a little tough). The red was very good with little heat, the pork was fork tender, the eggs were light, but the cheese was barely there. Overall this was an enjoyable lunch at a decent price. The menu is fairly limited and tends towards breakfast entrees. I can now say I have eaten at Josephina's however, there are other places in Las Cruces I would rather return to.

I went for a luncheon with folks who really built it up. I was disappointed with my food. Beans were sour??? Rice was a solid piece and tacos so-so.

We just enjoyed a family brunch at Josefina's and it was so enjoyable. We sat inside for a more quiet, relaxing meal. Everybody enjoyed what they ordered. The coffee was flowing and the service was professional and quick! We will definitely be back and we can bring our dog because they allow dogs on their front patio!

We joined a group of friends for Sunday brunch at Josefina’s and sat on the patio. The service was prompt and personable and the food was flavorful and reasonably priced. The restaurant had live music that was enjoyable, however, we were glad we sat on the front patio (with the music in the background) so as to not overpower our discussions.
Overall, a very enjoyable experience with good service and solid Mexican food.

Such a beautiful patio, we especially love the mornings and the desert light and air. The food is delicious and the service is very friendly . Just a beautiful place to gather. The best place for breakfast in Old Mesilla/Las Cruces.
