You can't miss when the locals eat there.

There were many locals eating there on a Tuesday night and we now know why. The food was outstanding. Fast service was appreciated. Good menu selection including a good children's menu. One of the best Mexican resturants we have been to.

Went there for my brother's birthday; even mid-afternoon on a Saturday there were still several tables full of customers. Complimentary tortilla chips and tasty salsa. Extensive menu included vegetarian and wheat-free options. My chile rellano with grilled shrimp was absolutely delicious! Prompt, accommodating servers who recognized the birthday with a huge portion of fried ice cream, sombrero and a serenade.... More

I eat at Jose's often, the food is outstanding, family loves it, and business guests like it. The outside patio is fantastic. Jose will visit you at your table or if you are waiting for your carry-out, every time. My favorite drink is the raspberry lemonade and their margarita's are smooth and tasty.

I asked a local from Wisconsin Dells to share with us her favorite restaurant. She sent us to this one in Baraboo. The food was excellent and you couldn't ask for friendlier people. I'm not sure if he was the manager, but he opened his doors five minutes early so we could come in. Even though it was August, it... More

I love eating here. The staff is friendly, the food is excellent and the atmosphere is just plain fun! My favorite dish is Fajita Quesadila with extra cheese sauce. Well worth your time to visit.

We arrived at prime dinner time with a large group of 8, and were seated immediately. It was rather busy for a Wednesday so i was pleased. We were greeted like family, and our drink order was taken immediately and we were given plenty of chips and salsa. The menu is large and easy to follow and filled with authentic... More

As a group of 8, we sat outside. Our drink server was a little slow after taking our order but it looked she was also working the cash register so we cut her some slack. We were all very pleased with our food, including the quality of the meal, the quantity of the food and the service of the staff.... More
