Took our fish in and did a hook and cook. They grilled it and provided set ups as well sides. It was a good local Mexican place.

They are the best at grilling the fish that you catch! Add a side of guac and charro beans and you have a perfect dinner! It is worth the trip to POC! It is consistently a delicious dinner and it is nice when I get to see the family that has been cooking the food since I was a child.... More

I fish a lot in Port O'Connor, and Josies is the place to go if you want to enjoy your catch of the day. Order your fish "grilled", which is accompanied with onions, tomatoes, lemons, jalapenos, a pile of tortillas, and dinner is on! A full bar is available to wash it all down. Their Tex-Mex plates are also out... More

I wasn't that impressed. The hot sauce tasted like it came out of a jar. The food didn't have much flavor. We love Mexican food and I was really hopping that we could enjoy some in Port O Connor.

We brought our own fish and they grilled them with some mixed vegetables and it was really good. The fish was cooked perfectly and the flour tortillas were great. The chips were good but the salsa was not. It had a good kick to it but the flavor was lacking. This is a casual dive and I would return to... More

We went here after hearing good things about it from friends. It is not a very clean or nice place. Our friends brought their own fish and the restaurant fried some and grilled some along with some onions, jalapenos and tomatoes. That was good! I was not a fan of their chips and salsa which is weird since it is... More

An excellent place to eat for breakfast! My wife and I ate here with family and the fast, friendly service was really great. Not only was breakfast outstanding, they even allowed us to have our little dog with us.

Great home cooked Mexican food! We had the buffet special the day we were here and it was very good! There was some sort of Mexican stew that was delicious, fried catfish, rice, green beans and a wonderful salad bar. Will definitely consider going back the next time I'm in the area.

The food is fine and the price is too. The staff is nice and attentive. If you take your fish caught fish they will grill it for you and that is excellent.

We were warned about this place but tried it anyway. Do not go here unless you like microwaved fake cheese, crumbled chips and fake margaritas! That's as far as we got until we threw a $20 on the table and ran out! I could make better Mexican food at home!
