Always look forward to a trip to Don Jose's. Food is good, service always great and a beautiful view. My favorite spot is the screened porch over-looking the lake.

We always make a stop at Don Jose's when passing by Sebring. Not so much for the food (nothing that will make your jaw drop) but more for the view, decor of the restaurant is beautiful as well. We truly hoped that the service was going to be quicker than the prior two times but it wasn't, it took the... More

Visited the restaurant before sunset and had a wonderful fun evening with couple drinks (its happy hour there). Seviche was very good and beef quesadilla was enough for whole dinner (we don't big eaters). Screened patio protected us from the bags and the view was awesome and fit was fun to walk around after. It was much more food in... More

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 shores of... 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. Value is going down as their popularity goes up because of the view and not the food. Hopefully with the season almost... More

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.
