The food is now just the basic Mexican-American food like most Mexican-American restaurants in Southern California. Nothing to brag about. The servers were not as pleasant as I would have liked. The quality of food and service has gone down greatly in the last few years. It's a shame that a once very delightful family ran this business and now the atmosphere and food are no longer the same even though as I have been told it was sold to a relative. It's still not the same.
This is one of those small neighborhood restaurants that the local people know about and frequent often. The food is basic, tasty and good portions for what you pay. They have the regular dinners, and combos. (They also have a brunch menu, but I've never been there for breakfast.) They also serve beer and margaritas. The employees are always friendly, and service is usually pretty quick. Go to their website and you can see their menu, plus they have a coupon you can print out: Buy one dinner and two fountain drinks, get the second dinner half off (not much, but it helps, lol).
My husband and I are new to Highland and happened into Taco Joe's because we were hungry for Mexican food and their parking lot was full (seemed like a good indication of quality). We love it! We went back last night and enjoyed it again. The service is very good, although they were slow to serve us when the place was busy the first time we went. We loved the crispy tacos, chiles rellenos, taquitos, tamales, beans and rice. The cheese enchiladas were good, but not great. This is a family restaurant, and they take great pride in their food. It is clear that locals have found this place and go back again and again. We plan to take advantage of the coupon and will try the fish tacos next time. We recommend this place for authenticity, great food, friendliness, and anbiance.
My husdband and I have enjoyed this resturant several times. The food is outstanding the service is friendly and helpful they have the best mexican food in town. Far better than the Mexico Resturant with no wait.Thank-you for your service
