This is one worst Mexican restaurants have ever ate at! Food is bland no taste or flavors. Many of workers from Peru so imagine they have no idea how to prepare Mexican food. Ecuador and PERU are wonderful people and countries but food fro them are extremely bland! Take a drive over to Sauk city and eat at the MEXICAN... More

Great meal at a great price. Can be busy during the major meal times. We try to visit during the non rush hours and enjoy the food and service.

I was disappointed this time. When I visited about a year ago, I thought this was the best Mexican food I'd ever eaten. It was still good this time, but I wasn't wowed. Better than average though. Staff seemed a little overworked.

Jose's never fails! Delicious food, excellent selection. Friendliest staff in baraboo! I would suggest this restaurant to anyone visiting baraboo. My personal favorites are the chili relleno and tamales. I've tried almost everything on the menu and have yet to be disappointed. My only request: more traditional Mexican soups!!

The food is consistently good. The staff always friendly, attentive and efficient. Even the owner, Jose often stops by the table to check in and visit. They make... More

We occasionally have had to wait up to 10 minutes to be seated, but my husband and myself love Jose's, as well as a few of our family members. They immediately bring you tostitos and salsa along with another sauce that is white and absoutely the most delicious dipping sauce for the chips. I always go in planning on ordering... More

Super Good. I travel around Wisconsin working at power plants and i eat a lot of Mexican food. This place is either the best i've had or tied for first place.
