Excellent Mexican restaurant in Sebring. My 7th or 8th visit today. Warm chips and salsa when you sit down. The hot salsa is quite spicy. But good. Attentive staff. No alcohol until 1:00 pm on Sundays. The County is 50 years behind. Wifi here too. Decent draft beer selection includes Mexican. Outside patio for the smokers to suffer in the... More

The deck overlooking the lake is our preferred sitting area in this restaurant...we enjoy the view while having a leisurely dinner. It's perfect for entertaining a group of friends but also for quiet dinners. There's quite a big selection of delicious meals and the service is very efficient. This place has joined our short list of preferred places in Sebring.

We go to Don Jose on a regular basis. We have a winter home in Sebring and we make sure we get to Don Jose several times while in town. The service and food is great!

This is a very nice restaurant serving Mexican food. It has a large outdoor seating area that is screened in and has overhead fans. The service, food and atmosphere was excellent. Will definitely go back if ever in Sebring again.

Food was okay, service left much to be desired and don't even think about ordering a margarita - tasted like the closest a bottle of tequila got to that was sitting on the shelf. View almost makes up for the other things - make sure you sit on the screened porch.

I was on vacation in Sebring when I heard about Don Jose Mexican Restaurant. I expected a causal taco place like every other place in the area but was I wrong. As soon as me and my family parked, We were amazed by the colors of the building and the beautiful fountain in the front. We entered and we greeted... More

We had a ladies luncheon the last week of May. We had reservations for 26 ladies. When we got to the restaurant they had us all set up on their screened porch. Lovely except the temperature was over 90 degrees. We asked if it was at all possible to move us all into the air conditioning. They were so accommodating... More

The salsa is so good that I wish they sold it in jars to take home! Best shrimp quesodillas I've ever had! It's on the appetizer section but I get it as my meal. Also, the blackened salmon fajitas are great. Service is always good and they're always smiling and happy to help. I've liked every dish I've tried so... More
