We came because of the convenience of proximity to our hotel. A friend had recommended the "fish tacos". We had one order blackened and one order fried. They were very good. Although we enjoyed our dining experience, we think the lady that had a few Margaritas enjoyed it even more...lol

The delicious salsa started it all! The food was so good and authentic! The fajitas portions were large and very tasty. Their chalupas were nice and crispy! And the beef Mexican plate was delicious and BIG! Will definitely return!!

Two of us split a combo fajitas with chicken, beef and shrimp. There was lots of chicken and steak, only 3 shrimp. It came with the usual fixings (above average rice) and homemade tortillas. Even with two of us, we were unable to eat it all. Good chips and warm salsa to start.

We had lunch here and enjoyed it very much. One of our party was Mexican and thought the food authentic with a home cooked taste.

OK, now you are intrigued right? Well the wreck it bit was as I sat down, i found out that the tables were not bolted down or that heavy, and I tipped one over, distributing the table contents (napkins, salt, pepper, sauce, etc) over the floor. Not a real issue, until you understand that two of South Padre's finest were... More

Food was salty. Lots in our group had the half of chicken, roasted. Lots of food but everything was salty. The chips and salsa is good. The salsa is heated. Only vegetarian option is cheese enchiladas but change the chilli con carne to green sauce or cheese sauce. The beans are not vegetarian but the rice is.

Looking for a a place to eat and have a few drinks with friends. I heard about Senor Donkeys from friends I work with. The food was good and drinks great. My husband and I could have shared a meal. There was so much food. The chips and salsa were to die for. That salsa is addicting. Enjoy

The first good sign was the salsa- amazing- they serve it warm like my grandma did & the chips were the best I've had in a long time. The margarita with the coronita was very tasty. Had the lunch special blackened fish tacos- WOW. For $7.99 I got 5 tacos with good charro beans, you can't beat that deal. The... More
