Love the casual atmosphere and outdoor seating. We each wanted the same thing - flank steak. We substituted the Sriracha potatoes. Excellent presentation and taste.

We were on the way to the Grand Canyon and went to Josephine's for dinner with some friends. The food is awesome and they update the cocktail menu fairly often.
