Do I need to say more?? The fried cheese curds were AMAZING -- I will never want a plain cheese curd again (and I don't usually like fried food!) These are dusted with fajita seasoning, rolled in crushed red, white, & blue corn tortilla chips, and fried. Served with a Chipotle crema. If we had just ordered these with a... More

There are many Mexican choices in Racine. But there's no match for Jose's. The margaritas are grrat. Atmosphere is wonderful and food is always good.

As an ADA citizen w a walker, it was difficult to get to the bar area for the famous happy hour. My friends had to help me up the few steps. Staff was kind, knowledgeable, and quick. This place has a lively atmosphere!

This restaurant offers a great combination of decor and taste treats. The staff is ready and willing to make menu recommendations. Fairly large groups can be seated and served by friendly waiters. This restaurant seems to have it all put together for South of the Boarder fare.

I met up with friends for a lunch of chimichangas. We each had a different variety and enjoyed them. The food was plentiful and tasty. Our waitress was pleasant and made sure we had plenty to drink.

Very good Mexican food and nothing like a yummy margarita to go with it. Staff is very friendly. The chips and homemade salsa are also very good. The make the guacamole right at your table. If it's your birthday the put a sombrero on you and the staff comes out to sing. Great entertainment.
