When we arrived, we were asked to stand in the hallway while we waited for the entire back room to open up. While waiting, they came down... read more

This is great Mexican restaurant with Authentic taste. Great Service. Owner personally came to greet us and sat next to us. Even though we did not want to have a dessert he gave us as a complementary. We will definitely go to this restaurant again many times.

We LOVE Jose's. Anytime we are within a 15 miles radius, we plan for a stop there. The food is always fantastic, we could go for the cheese dip alone. The staff is incredibly friendly and makes sure you enjoy every single visit.

This is a great Mexican restaurant. The food is good, very similar to most local restaurants but the service here is awesome. It's a fun place like what you would find in Mexico. Well worth stopping.

The staff was outstanding, checking frequently to make sure that our drinks and chip baskets were always full. The atmosphere is always so much fun and so welcoming. There is no other place in Baraboo I would rather celebrate, with a large... More

I was in Baraboo recently on business and stopped at Jose's for lunch. The staff were all very friendly and Jose was going around the restaurant wishing everyone a Feliz Navidad. I had the juevos con chirozo (eggs with sausage) with beans and rice on the side. It was very good and was a large sized meal. I will stop... More
