For a night of lakeside dining in a festival of colors and authentic flavors, Don Jose Mexican Restaurant in Sebring, Florida cannot be beat. The atmosphere is always lively, and the service is exceptionally fast, even during the dreaded dinner rush.

A wide variety of unique steak dishes are available at Don Jose, each served with rice and refried beans unless otherwise specified. The steak pueblo is one such incredible dish, a New York Strip sauteed with garlic and topped with melted cheese, beans, and green sauce. Likewise, the skirt steak is amazing, marinated with fresh garlic, lemon, and olive oil, then grilled and served with cheese enchiladas, black beans, and rice.

The chimichangas are majestic creations at Don Jose’s, deep-fried perfectly crispy, and topped with creamy delicious queso. Available in chicken, steak, shrimp, or beef varieties, each chimichanga comes with fresh pico de gallo, refried beans, and rice on the side, a perfect harmony of flavors sure to satisfy any hunger.

Likewise, the seafood Vera Cruz is available in tilapia, salmon, or cod varieties, each broiled with butter and garlic, then covered in plum tomato sauce, onions, red peppers, zucchini, olives, cilantro, and just a splash of beer.
