“This is great Mexican food...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013 via mobile

We eat Mexican food at least once a week. We were driving through over spring break. Decided to give it a try. It was very good and we would eat here again for sure. The staff was first rate as well.

“The BEST authentic Mexican Restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Jose's serves up the best authentic Mexican food in this small town. The taco salad is out of this word, and the margarita's go down GREAT! Fun for a birthday celebration as well, they make the birthday person feel very special with singing, a sombrero and a little whipped topping!

“Authentic Mexican with humor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

The waiter had such a great sense of humor. We have friends who frequent this restaurant every Friday. On their recommendation, we went with friends and their teenage boys. Everyone had a great meal. We had to sit at separate tables just because they were so busy - it's a smaller place. I think the boys were fine with that option. The waiter did such a good job apologizing as well as making everyone feel included. Great place for family or larger groups because they can push tables together - you just might want to make reservations.

“Bueno!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

The service is second to none! Food is excellent! I love the Chicken Taco Salads. Free chips, salsa, and ranchero sauce? Yes please! Fun place to take someone for their birthday. Let the staff know and bring a camera!!!

“Yes, as good as it gets for casual Mexican”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

We were staying at Devil's Head Resort and their restaurant was full, so a quick search turned up Jose's. Can you take a table of 8 right now? "We're full right now but we'll make a place for you." OK, cool. 3 separate checks? "No problem." What we found after a quick 15-minute drive is a large, lively and very customer-oriented restaurant, with GREAT Mexican food. The Carnitas was a massive plate of delicious tender pork and served with a side of special salsa (sorry I can't remember what they called it, but it was clearly house-made and really delicious). The Chile Verde was similarly excellent. The kids all scarfed down their (very inexpensive) meals. There's a comprehensive list of Mexican beers, which we made good use of. Toward the end of our meal a very friendly server asked us if we were ready for a round of tequila shots. We thought he was joking. Then he showed up with a bottle of El Jimador Anejo and set us up - gratis. Jose's goes on our list of new must-have traditions when visiting the Baraboo area.
