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.

As a Texan in Florida I must confess to suffering serious Mexican and Tex-Mex withdrawals. Don Jose's is a gem! We go every time we are in Seebring (5 times so far) and we have not had a disappointing experience. Great food, great servers, lovely atmosphere with a nice view.

After reviewing reviews online and continually seeing a full parking lot each time we passed by, we decided to try Don Jose's. We received excellent service and the food was delicious. The staff was attentive, courteous, and friendly. We look forward to eating there again. One minor complaint.... The water is nasty tasting. Surely Don Jose's can afford a service... More

Visited this restaurant with a friend. Both of us disappointed in the food. At best average, although selection is large. Mole sauce was wanting. Food somewhat flavorless. Service was haphazard. Would not likely return.

Dropped in here a couple of days ago because of location and how well the outside was kept. Oops, that was a bit of a mistake for choosing a restaurant. Started out not too bad, salsa has a bit of life, a little watery but some spice. I'm not sure why restaurants have their staff show up to ask what... More

Went to Don Jose Mexican restaurant tonight and we were so disappointed. The food quality is very poor and has a very bland taste. The food quantity is very small for the amount they charge. The beans and rice was uneatable. When I complained our waiter just said, "well everybody else lines it." From the reviews you can see I... More

Don Jose is a most attractive looking restaurant with authentic décor as well as a wonderful view of Lake Jackson. Service is generally good with attentive servers who try to please while offering quick service. Unfortunately the food is not equal to the appearance of the restaurant. Prices are that of a higher quality restaurant. Overall the menu is sufficient... More

Upon our arrival by boat, the restaurant is situated on lake Jackson in Sebring Florida. The service was efficient & the 2 for 1 margaritas was a plus. love the Mexican food flavours of beans & rice with the entree. Love this place for the outside deck seating as well as inside in the decor of Mexico. Furnishings are very... More

The only thing this place has going for it is the view from the deck on a nice day or night. The wait staff is slow and not very helpful (even though they weren't that busy). The food does not meet my expectations for good Mexican food. The cost is too high for both the food and the drinks. For... More
