Good food, reasonably priced

From the Mexican décor to the good food this place is a must if you live or are visiting Sebring. As Sebringites we go to Don Jose on a regular basis. The food is very good and reasonably priced. They have a full service bar and carry my favorite wine -- a Moscato. The restaurant sits on the... read more

Great location with lake view. Wife and I had fajitas. Great rice. Beans good, but a little salty. Great salsa, with plenty of chips. Beef was plentiful and well cooked, could have used more traditional fajitas flavoring. Great service. Gladly recommend.

The view from the deck is the best on Lake Jackson. Had the nachos again as they are one of our favorites. Noted portion size has been reduced by almost half what it used to be last year.

Decided to stop at Don Jose's for dinner on the way back from Naples. Restaurant was busy but we were seated quickly. Drinks were OK but the tacos were skimpy with very little meat, cheese, and lettuce. There was no tomato on them and we asked the manager to bring some. The view of the lake was nice but we... More

Loved the lake view in the evening. The Enchilada Platter and Shrimp Enchiladas and Chimichanga with steak were about average as was the price.

Froz/strawberi Margarita was perfect. I had the beef tacos, that tasted good, but sat in beans and hard shells turned to mushy shells. Service was good and helpful with our group of about 10 people. It was a busy race week night and they did well with the crowd.

If your travels find you in Sebring Fla stop by Don Jose's for beverages or a meal. The restaurant has a nice outside area next to the lake to enjoy your break. We love it.
