Fast Food?

I don't know what they do in the kitchen, but I have never seen food prepared so quickly. Not really impressed with it either. Looks very plain and everything just runs together on the plate. Not really impressed.

Very nice and clean, all the Mexican decorations, beautiful chairs and tables. The food up to standards, good and whenever we were unhappy with food they were very eager to make things right. Beautiful view of lake Jackson with dock facilities for the boaters.

We visited this place twice so far this year with 2 different sets of friends. The food is excellent and reasonably priced. Service was good and the margaritas were 2 for the price of 1....what more can you ask. There is a lovely outdoor patio overlooking the waters edge.

Sorry to refute all those who love it but the food was not hot. Had beef chimi and it did not taste good. Have eaten at a lot of Mex restaurants and it was average. But the atmosphere is good overlooking lake and chips and salsa was very good. Service was "sluggish". Had to keep asking for refills and they... More

Chips and salsa were a great appetizer. Even though there was also a major party group our food was served in a timely fashion. I don't recall that anyone in our party was unhappy with their dinner.

When we visit Sebring, we go here. Always quality food and above average service. The 2 for 1 margaritas are better than many other places house margaritas. They even made a special entree for my picky daughter! Isn't a cheap place, but worth the little extra. Awesome view of the lake!

Great outdoor covered and screened seating with a nice view of the lake. Good service and tasty food. Large portions as you may expect from a Mexican restaurant. Great alternative to the same old chain restaurants in the area.

We love this place, and can't say enough nice things about it! As lovers of Mexican food, my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Don Jose's. The atmosphere and décor make for a great dining experience and the service is first class. Our server was most informative and very attentive and our food was prepared and delivered... More

We enjoy dining outdoors and this restaurant has a nice screened in porch. You can also see a volleyball set just outside in the water and im not sure but they have a dock with what appears to be places to dock at. Which would make for a nice lunch stop. Food was okay.
