Really nice surprise. We were in the area looking for a place to eat and stumbled across Josephine St. The door said "Steak & Whiskey" and that got my attention. We had the 7oz filet and the filet burger. Both were really good, we will go back. Very reasonable prices, the above were about $13 each. Steaks, Chicken Fried Steak,... More

This was a recommendation from a local and it was fabulous! I had the pork chops and the gravy was so good I took some home. Very reasonable prices as well especially considering you are near the pricy Pearl area!

Had to meals while in town and both were excellent. The chicken was tender throughout and very tasty. The patio is a great place when the weather is warm to sit back relax and eat a great meal.

My first visit here was very good. However, on this visit both of our meals were lacking. My wife ordered a chicken breast which came out with just the chicken breast and an onion ring. I ordered the steak and shrimp that only had three little shrimp. This they tasted pretty good and the shrimp tasted good. However, the side... More

Josephine's is located near the Pearl and has plenty of parking. It has a feeling of a place you would expect in a small town. The restaurant has expanded seating outside under oak trees. What brings me back is the daily lunch specials with two sides that offer chicken dishes, chicken fried steak, with fried shrimp served on Fridays. The... More

Josephine Street Cafe is a San Antonio institution. It is located on the edge of the Pearl district but has been around for decades before the Pearl was ever developed. The floor slopes and creaks, there is a tree trunk in the middle of the dining room, it is small and crowded especially on weekends, but the food is great... More

I would have never found this place without trip advisor. The atmosphere was relaxed and the service was friendly. The food was also great. The home fries were amazing! We were vacationing but if he lived here would return often! The 2 of us had steak and sides for $34. Would be a fine place for kids too.

I will now visit Josephine Street on every visit to San Antonio. Great food and service. It is obvious the chef and kitchen staff really care about what they are serving. I had an excellent bacon rapped sirloin steak. As far as pricing goes, it was a great value. The restaurant can be a challenge to find the first time... More
