Jole Jose's!

Jose's is a good choice for something interesting in Racine. Pretty classic straight up the middle Tex-Mex selections, you taco's, burritos and fajitas all will satisfy. Margaritas flow in plenty of variations. The staff are friendly and love to entertain for birthdays (oh make it someone's... read more

Dined with a large party (over 20) and the staff was excellent. They went out of their way to take care of each person - the orders were correct, the food was good. Just a wonderful experience - plus since we initially arrived during they had free tacos!

Consistently good food and good service. Excellent chips especially when accompanied by "made at the table side" guacomole. Recently had the shrimp tacos and they were yummy. Chimichanga is huge. Great food. Fun place.

The service was very good, but unfortunately I wasn’t really that impressed with the food. Don’t get me wrong, it was good…..but I have had much better. I would consider going there again…but not anytime soon.

After hearing several friends rave about Jose's Blue Sombrero, we finally took the short trip to Racine to try their food, particularly the famous "made by the table" guacamole. The ambience is fine, rustic, not upscale and it was clean. It was full of customers even at 8:15 PM, thus we waited for about 10 minutes to be seated. The... More

I eat here every time I visit in March; stay at the Marriott and eat here. Good food, good service, moderate prices. I live in Colorado, where most wait staff in Mexican restaurants come from Mexico and speak Spanish... so it's a bit of a surprise to find most of the folks don't, here. Nonetheless, a great experience!
