Sat outside on the lanai overlooking Lake Jackson and had very good meal. Drinks and salsa excellent, enchiladas were good not great.

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.

Small town without alot of choices.. Location is great looking out to Lake Jackson. Drinks, good. Chips and salsa, good. Food, sadly disappointed. Ordered burrito. Not good. Better off stopping by a local vender on the side of the road. Ill give it another try one day.

We have never been disappointed at Don Jose's ... The Shrimp Don Jose is my new favorite, with the Shrimp Garlic Acero coming in a close second. Great service is a plus.

We winter in Sebring and get to Don Jose as often as possible. Mexican food is not something we grew up with but I am a convert. The frozen Margarita is wonderful but I had a bit of hubby's Dos Equi tonight and it was perfect. Service has been top notch every time I have been there and tonight was... More

I have visited this restaurant a half-dozen times, and it's always a treat. On my most-recent visit, I asked if they had anything hotter than the standard salsa they serve with chips. They brought me a small bowl of salsa with fresh chopped jalepenos in it. And during the meal, when they noticed that I was drinking a lot of... More
