No onions means no onions. After telling our server no onions, the meal arrived with onions. Another long wait for my partners dish to arrive. The server forgot to refill our drinks after saying he would. Location is great, service and food not so much.

One of 2 restaurants located right on Lake Jackson with spectacular views of the lake. This also is the top Mexican restaurant in Sebring, so if you have a taste for South of the Border cuisine, this is the place to be. I have been many times and have never had a bad meal and their margaritas are Awesome.

Husband and I had a late lunch out on the deck overlooking the water, Lake Jackson. My burrito supreme was good and hubby raved about his steak quesadillas.

While there was nothing overly exciting or unusual in the food, it was good and came it good-sized portions.

Visited Don Jose for dinner whilst staying in Sebring with some trepidation as my previous experiences with Mexican food were not good. This is lively restaurant and at 6.15 was busy with diners. We had excellent guacamole and margaritas whilst we looked over the menu. I chose a Chicken garlic dish which was well cooked - lovely tender chicken breasts... More

Wow! My husband and I just returned from dinner at Don Jose's, but we won't return. First of all, it was so noisy we could hardly converse. The porch would have been more quiet, but it was full. Then, they only had a red sauce for their burritos...no cheese sauce. The waiter said there was cheese on top of the... More

Located on Lake Jackson, this restaurant is the perfect setting for a nice evening out. The ambiance is pleasant and the food is really good. The only negative is they nickel and dime you with up-charges if you want a little something extra on your food, like jalapenos.

For a quick lunch and plenty of food, Don Jose in Sebring has that taken care of easily. Steaks, burrito, tacos, chimichanga, ceviche, great salsa-hot and mild. Reasonably priced. Clean dining areas. Huge screened in porch on Lake Jackson. Great view.

Thank Michael M E W
