Chimichanga, oily and not crisp, cold beans, dry rice. Good chips and salsa, cold beer. Second visit here. Taco bell is better

We are here at the recommendation of a couple of college friends who moved into the area. The menu is large and varies quite a bit. I had the enchiladas suizas and thoroughly enjoyed it! The service was very prompt and not rushed at all. The server allowed us to talk and catch up with our friends without any unnecessary... More

I came by the first time sometime this week, and I went and sat over by the bar, it was a very young lady behind it so I thought she wouldn't know what she was doing but she was very helpful, had a great attitude, the service was fast, we had short conversation but she was very helpful and very...

We live in Naples, but anytime we're anywhere near Sebring, we stop at Don Jose. We've been coming here for years, and the food is always great. The beans are beyond good. You want to become one with the beans! They are not gloopy mashed beans, but whole beans in a savory broth that you just can't get enough of.... More

I've enjoyed every meal I've had at Don Jose's...except on a Mother's Day. They had a mariachi band playing inside, and the racket was deafening...but the food was good. They have an excellent variety, and the food is delicious. I would like to see a salad offered as part of the meal. The restaurant is clean and beautifully decorated, lovely... More

We just moved to the Sebring area and asked the locals where the best food could be found. The short list included Publix Grocery's chicken, Olympic Seafood, and Don Jose's. Since we love Tex-Mex, we headed for Lake Jackson. We turned in at their sign and found ourselves in thier employee's parking lot from which we had a difficult time... More

This is a nice place to spend a relaxing evening. There are plenty of places go sit and watch the sunset or just have a good drink. The food is good no true Mexican I don't believe but still hits the spot. Can be a little pricy especially if your drinking but it's worth a stop in every now and... More

We had a family get together at Don Jose. Excellent food, great service and reasonable prices - all with a view of Lake Jackson. We particularly enjoyed the ceviche appetizer and the salmon, tilapia and shrimp entrees.

Let me preface this review with a little background.....My wife and I both worked in the service industry for many years and have a very high standard when it comes to being waited on at a restaurant. When we arrived the parking lot was full so we assumed we would have to wait for a seat...wrong! We were seated immediately... More

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
