I know people who love this place but this is the 2nd time we have eaten here and it is "not" good......The Taco's were flavorless and small and the Enchalada's were no better. Just tasteless. Prices are way too-high for this food..Must be the bar that is popular? Beats me !

Our last couple of trips to Jose's were disappointing. Not so Saturday night! We arrived before 6:00 and were seated right away, our server was very attentive and upbeat. Ordered margaritas from the tequila menu (Milagro silver) Chips and salsa were alarms on the table. Ordered from their special menu. I got the pork tacos, wife got the shrimp tacos.... More

We arrived there at 8 PM on Friday night and I was surprised there was a 30 minute wait! We went and sat in the bar and they gave us some chips and salsa until our table was ready, which was really nice. The food came out pretty quickly and it was very good. I would recommend this restaurant.

We went here for dinner on 9/8/2014. We practice Meatless Mondays and decided to have the Seafood Burritos and Chipotle Tequila Shrimp tacos. Both were excellent. This place won the Best of Racine County voting for 2014 in the Mexican category. Try it, you won't regret it!

Drove past Jose's it at night because it looked closed from the outside with little lighting and an unmarked parking entrance (also, cars not visible because parking is in back). Entry door was even a bit difficult to find. Once inside, the ambience was warm and unique with attentive service. The standard margarita was delicious and plenty potent. Chips were... More

For a restaurant that looks like it is in the middle of nowhere this place was amazing. It was busy and fun and had a great menu. We went with a family group of 9 and they were able to accommodate us all. Great warm chips with salsa that they just keep filling. Loved the Korean tilt to some of... More

My family and I went to Jose's again last night and we enjoyed the food once again. The service is always good and you can't beat the prices. Excellent place for families.

One of my favorites. Great variety of margarita flavors and great deals in the bar during happy hour (if you're lucky enough to score a table). Tornado is super good - but beware as they are strong (mix of margarita and sangria). The family loves dining here. Fresh made chips and the best salsa ever! I recommend the superhero steak... More

I don't get out to Jose's very often but when we have gone, we have been impressed by the quality and the service. Nice atmosphere too. Informal and relatively affordable.

Great Mexi an food that is not your usual "gringo" fare. Lots of options on the menu. Place is busy... can be a bit noisy.
