Celebrate Cinco de Mayo at Joselito’s
This Sunday, May 5, is going to be a really fun day in the good ole’ Montrose Shopping Park! In addition to the Sunday Harvest Market, the annual Wags & Whiskers and Kids & Kritters events and Taste of Montrose, it’s also Cinco de Mayo celebrating Mexican heritage. Is there a better time to eat at Joselito’s (2345 Honolulu Ave.), which has been dishing up delicious Mexican specialties since 1977?
In honor of the event, owner Corey Grijalva plans to serve one of their customers’ favorite specials called Mexican Flag Enchiladas. You get three enchiladas: one red filled with beef, one white filled with cheese, and one green filled with chicken, plus rice and beans. You can also enjoy Sunday champagne brunch from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for only $11.25.
This would be an ideal day to try out “Josie’s” patio. I did recently and enjoyed kicking back, under the patio umbrellas, and watching the sights. People and dog watching should be especially good this weekend with all of the events going on.
Joselito’s is famous for its margaritas and have many to choose from. If you order the Cinco special, try an icy strawberry or Midori melon marg to match. The complimentary house made chips and salsa are also famous around these parts with just the right amount of heat and a kick from Mexican oregano. Consider trying the chicken tortilla soup with fresh cilantro as a good starter.
For those who like their veggies, the spinach enchilada is served on two corn tortillas and topped with fresh sautéed spinach, sweet corn, pico de gallo, sour cream, sauce, and cheese. Yummy goodness. Seafood lovers will have lots of choices including lobster enchiladas and sizzling shrimp fajitas. Everyone loves the pollo en mole.
Happy Cinco de Mayo! See you in Montrose where community matters.
