Great service! Food was good and reasonably priced. We went for dinner on a Saturday night. The wait was not too long.

4 kids and I enjoyed a night out at Senor Donkey's restaurant. It was a nice relaxing dinner with bright Mexican decor and family atmosphere with very reasonable prices. The food was very good, but did not like the salsa; maybe it was just missing our NM green chile:). We will be back next year!

This is a cute Mexican place that serves a lot of different things besides Mexican. My enchilladas were some of the best I've had and the rice & beans were very tasty. My husband got a shrimp basket and said it was really delicious. I can't comment on the drinks because I only had a draft beer but it was... More

The drinks were fabulous. The guacamole and chips was delicious. The food was hit and miss. We ordered the shrimp de ablo, shrimp enchiladas, chicken quesadilla and chicken tacos. Both shrimp dishes were barely edible. In fact, we didn't eat them. If we weren't heading out and getting on the road we would have took it back. The shrimp was... More

I enjoyed the food but nothing over average. Service was OK, had to ask for drink refills. The staff while very nice, seemed a bit bored. I would give this place another chance at a busier time.

We had just made it over to SPI for our trip and wanted a good lunch. Normally, I'll consult Trip advisor before choosing a place to eat but everyone was hungry so there was no time. We have really good authentic Mexican food at home, not the chain commercial stuff so we aren't easy to please when it comes to... More

So my girl and I were headed to the island and she was in the mood for Mexican food. All I kept thinking was, "Mexican food at the island"? Fine. She found Señor Donkey on the Internet so we headed there. We walked in at about 9:00 p.m. and they close at 10:00 p.m. we were greeted with a smile... More
