We decided to go out to dinner for the first time since the pandemic for my son’s birthday as Jose’s website stated they had “limited dine-in seating.” The place was packed with no social distancing and not all employees were wearing masks, and this was...a Wednesday night! Although the food never disappoints, I wouldn’t recommend dining in at Jose’s at this time.More

Nothings fancy here. We visited while there was construction near them. Service was average. Food was good and hot.

People talk about this place like it is pure gold. However, I went here with my wife and a couple of friends who love the place. My wife and I both ended up sick. Our plates of food were very greasy. The beans, rice, and...other food looked like it had extra fryer oil on it. We probably won’t be back.More

I always judge a place by the sides. This place had some very good rice. I would eat here again. The margarita was also very good. I split a pitcher with 3 friends and we each got 2 drinks out of the pitcher (excellent deal)....I would recommend this place to others.More

We went to Jose's Authentic Mexican Restaurant for some real Mexican food. It was very good and reasonably priced. The decor was nicely Mexican, even the washroom doors had Mexican themes. The place was busy so we knew it was a good restaurant to visit....Their were people of all ages there, from kiddies to elderly.More

We enjoyed our dinner at Jose's. The restaurant was clean. I always appreciate a menu with vegetarian options. My chalupa, cheese enchilada, refried bean combo was delicious. My husband enjoyed his taco and enchilada dinner and his margarita.

Went for lunch for my birthday. Joined their email club and got a free margarita. Food is awesome and you get plenty of it. Were greeted as soon as we walked in the door. Everyone was nice and service was fast and friendly. Small space...but well worth it. Definitely recommend.More

First off ,the food was excellent but the waitress was horrible .She never asked or refilled my water. Then they had a mariachi band going to every table and they played way too loud. Tables next to us had to yell to each other just...to hear them.It ruined my experienceMore

We arrived around 6:15 on a Saturday night to a FULL parking lot! Never thought we'd get in. Much larger than it appears from outside. Best margarita I've ever had. Waitress was sweet. Food was delicious! Can't wait to return - need to find a...reason to visit Baraboo area again!More
