Off the beaten tourist path but well worth the drive. Traditional Mexican menu items -tacos, enchiladas, fajitas, carnitas, flautas, etc. - are prepared in an open kitchen. Our party of 5 agreed it was the best Mexican food outside of Mexico. Service was outstanding. This is not a fancy place but oh so good. Beverages limited to bottled beer, margaritas... More

If you are looking for Tex-Mex, keep looking - this is not your place. This "hole in the wall" is authentic Mexican food. We started with the chips and salsa that they serve to all tables. Not your chunky salsa but a spicy red sauce and a flavorful green sauce. 2 in our party got street tacos. They have a... More

There are some great dishes here. Not for those seeking a plate of junk smothered with cheese. Some serious heat in one of the salsas. Very authentic feel too.

I like the authenticity of this place. Servers are fast and speak both english and Spanish fluently. Not so fast service but it is fresh, understandable.

What a good surprise when my friend told me I know a Mexican restaurant not far from here. At first I was undecided, Mexican restaurant in South Florida... As we were parking I realize that it was going to be good. The parking was full, and that always a good sign. Inside you are back in Mexico, decoration, food and... More

Doña Raquel is the way traditional Mexican taquerias are set up and the quality of the food doesn't disappoint. This is not the place for Americanized Mexican food. This place is not fancy, it is not elegant, it is nothing except good food and good service at very moderate prices! Whenever I am homesick I go to Doña Raquel and... More
