“Food ok....service sucked”
Reviewed August 1, 2013 via mobile

Ran out of scotch. How can that happen? Ordered a couple of burgers and fries with oun complimentary quesadilla from our hotel...the Hampton. Never got the quesadilla. Even asked for it three times. Oh, the beer was not COLD

“Average Joe's”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

This was an average meal at an average price. I would have expected better Mexican food in NM. Service was good. Ample parking.

“Sad to say our experience was really awful here...”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

After a long day on the road, we had promised the grandsons a fun place and good diner burgers or chicken here at the famous Joseph's on Historic Route 66. It didn't turn out that way at all.

The service was absolutely horrible, almost had to seat ourselves, and the waitress, although she started out good, almost disappeared. Long wait for our food, and the chicken strips the boys had ordered were not good at all. The chicken was obviously frozen chicken strips and had not been cooked completely, it was soft and mushy and they made themselves eat some of it because they were so hungry. The fries were real dry and tasteless too.
We had mexican fare, but even that was not very good.

Unfortunately we have to say goodbye to ever trying this one again. It has such promise but it was a total disappointment!

“Excellant Mexican food”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

This is where the locals go when they want excellent Mexican food. Very extensive menu. This place has been here since the 50's.

“Excellent Carne Adovada”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

We love carne adovada and can't get it at home. Loved it at Joseph's. Also got the tamales with green chili sauce and the they tasted like the meat was prepared very similarly. The main dishes were excellent. Beans were okay. Didn't like the rice. Value of the meal was fantastic if you are watching your budget. Everyone was very friendly. Planning on coming back again.
