    Josie's has got it's mojo back people. There was a time when I would hit Josies at least 3x each month. The huge tamales, the awesome chicken tacos, & the tasty taquitos. This was THE mex take out in town. Over time, portions grew smaller & quality went down. It just wasn't as exciting to pick up food there anymore. Other places were popping up left and right more worthy of attention.

    After reading a recent review of Josie's on Yelp, it gave me hope that the magic had returned. So glad I called today. The chicken tacos were scrumptious like the old days. The chicken taquitos continued to be a go to item. I can confidently recommend Josie's once again as a quality take out location in Gardena. Good job to whoever is responsible for bringing back the glory days. Don't lose your edge. Us old timers are counting on you to keep the tradition going and those legendary chicken tacos coming.

    Almost 4 years since my last visit as we were so disappointed how this historic taco stand in Gardena was being run into the ground and the competition in the area was growing

    Guess the time away and competition was good as now the food seems to be back on par. My chicken taquitos were great. I added my own cheese as there is never quite enough and some tomatoes to hype them up. The taquitos were crispy (other than spots soggy from sitting in the pico de gallo juice) and S T U F F E D with tender chicken. Love them.

    Mac's chicken tacos looked better than the last ones I remember. Still not sure if as good as good ole days (nor Tilly's and Pepe's) but definitely back on the list for spots to visit.

    Been coming here for a while now, my co-workers and I love this place. We usually get the fried chicken tacos, it had been a while that we stopped going because the last two times we didn't really like the food, the chicken was not good and the tortilla itself was very salty, today we decided to give it another try because other reviews stated that it was now back to how it used to be, bomb..
    Im glad we gave it another try, because everything we got was absolutely delicious!!!

    My tint guy recommended this spot while I waited for my car. He recommended the hard shell chicken taco. It was pretty good. Salsa made it better. Too bad it was only one little half of a tomato on it. When I bit Into it all the juice ran out the bottom. So ask for extra napkins or a plate. Taste like theysprinkled it was salt which was okay with me. I tried the enchilada sauce. Not my cup of tea. I would be back if I'm in the area.
