In order for reviews to be meaningful, there should be consistent standards across all areas of the country/world. A 5 star rating in Baraboo should require the same level of food quality, atmosphere, service and comfort as a 5 star restaurant in New York or LA. Clearly that is not happening. Case in point is Jose’s Mexican restaurant. This place... More

We tried this restaurant four times, and really wanted to like it, as the owner really tries to make you feel special, but the food doesn’t impress. I thought the chicken chimichanga was dry, tough and stringy. We didn’t like the enchilada sauces, and we sampled four of them. The fajitas were just okay, but lacked flavor, and the corn... More

This place will definitely be... More

We chose to eat here because of the #1 Restaurant rating for Baraboo. We agree! The décor is nice. The background music sets the mood for the great Mexican food. Our waitress was very attentive to our table. One order came out wrong but it was quickly corrected.

We are regular patrons here! Great food and the most fun staff and atmosphere. They are always joking and teasing. We go to celebrate most family birthdays because they sing and give free ice cream. Our pictures are on the wall. Make sure to try their margaritas!

When we went to eat at Jose's Sunday evening 7/13 we had to wait an extra long time for our food and were beginning to wonder if we had been forgotten. Turns out there were just a couple large groups that came in ahead of us and Edmundo came over and apologized and talked to us for a while. We... More

Wow! We'd never been here and it was so good! I stayed away from the chips (as mouthwatering as they looked!) and still used the white sauce with my fajitas. Even my strawberry margarita was yummy! We all enjoyed our meal so much!!

We have eaten at Mexican restaurants across the US and this one rates in the top 5!! Very clean, large servings and friendly staff.. The white sauce served with the salsa and chips is fantastic. Put this restaurant on your bucket list!
