This is a large place with plenty of seating. We ordered chicken fajitas for 2. Unfortunately, the chicken was dry and tough. There was no way the portion we got was sufficient for 2 people. They must have brought us a single order. The refried beans we pasty and flavorless.

Can't beat this view for drinks and dinner out back in the large open aired screen house. Decent Mexican meals, awesome salsa and guacamole. Reasonable prices. Will always go back.

We were passing by Sebring. Coming from Miami to our destiny Tampa. The beautiful environment made us stop at this town Looking for a restaurant on the lake we found Don Jose. Beautiful environment, delicious food. Our server, Elizabeth, was very nice and helpful. For sure I will stop again when I pass by Sebring.

My parents retired to Sebring about 30 years ago and I have eaten at Don Jose's many times over the years. Great food, good prices and a fantastic lakeside view.
