Fun place with great Margaritas

Excellent Margaritas with lots of flavor choices. The food is pretty good as well. It is fairly crowded and fairly loud to hear, especially in the bar area.

We stopped here on a recommendation of a friend and we not impressed at all. Our second visit we found the place to be dirty and the food below average and after a year and were in the area craving Mexican we thought lets give it one last chance. Well never again from bartenders that could make a good drink... More

OK, maybe I ordered the wrong thing at lunch, some sort of fish dish with a watery sauce and cheese. What was I thinking? Order a taco. But the chips tasted like the oil was old and the salsa wasn't really doing it for me, either. I don't know what it tasted like, not much. If I can't finish the... More

This is the 3rd time I've eaten here - twice due to business, once with a friend. It's just all underwhelming. Really wish we had a decent Mexican restaurant in Racine. I've yet to find one. No plan to eat there again. Go into Milwaukee and eat at La Fuente... it's 150% better.

This restaurant has to many people at the bar and not enough bartenders! The food is ok but the prices are getting out of hand! The staff doesn't seem like they want to be there!

Jose's Blue Sombrero is a fun, updated take on Mexican food. The tortilla chips and salsa were terrific but nothing surprising. Always nice food and friendly, attentive service. One note: the mole dish just tastes odd. Not at all what I had expected. Rather spiritless.

Wanted to try a new Mexican restaurant. We were not disappointed. The food is fresh and wonderful. They come to your table to make fresh guacamole. The free chips and salsa are addictive. Highly recommended.

If you want to get a good matgarita in Racine, Wisconsin this is the place. If you want good mexican food, maybe not. Service was real slow, if you can eat 3 bowls of chips and your food isn't there yet, that is a service problem. I will say the staff is friendly and treated us well. For mexican food... 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!
