I've been to Don Jose quite a few times. The location right on the lake is very nice, and the inside of the restaurant is very bright and festive. The service is good but the food is just average. For Example the last time I went there the peppers and onions for my fajitas were barely cooked, just warmed up... More

We were looking for a place to eat with good food and not too pricey. This restaurant had good reviews and the menu online was enticing. The service was good even though it was busy with several large parties. The food was good, they had a drink special two for one draft beers with nice selections. The salsa they brought... More

Don Jose's on Lake Jackson in Sebring, FL is a great place to get a quality Mexican meal. They have a good selection both at lunch and dinner; the pricing is right and the decor is bright and festive. Haven't had anything alcoholic, but the bar must be good because it's always busy serving diners inside and out. Seating on... More

I'm not sure if it was because it was a Sunday and I was coming in after the lunch rush or what but the service was off. I kept thinking the girl really needed to get done with her shift. My food was barely luke warm and felt as if it was last nights left overs!!! I had to ask... More

Have lots of friends that love Mexican foods and we seem to go here when its their turn to choose. I don't like the taste of cilantro (tastes like soap to me) and it seems to be in everything. Usually choose the chicken fajitas and try to avoid the rice, salsa, etc.

We love this place for our Mexican food fix. We do not think we have had any better doing any of our travels. We sat out on the back deck and enjoyed the laid back atmosphere, the view and always our food. My favorite is the fajitas. So much food to eat and share with others in your party........

I have been to many Mexican restaurants to know that this one is not up to my standards. There were a few cars in the lot and a couple boats had docked outside. You can pull up dockside on Lake Jackson. Usually the place is packed in winter months, but I'm not sure why. This was my first time trying... More

First all very nice atmosphere, margarita was good, food was very good. Our server was charming and very attentive to our requests. Recently bought a house in the area so this will become a regular dining experience.
