Very tasty food and a fun atmosphere. We had a rather large group and we were served very well. My husband is not crazy about Tex-Mex but the Mexican fajita seafood dish was something he really loved.

Coming from this region, I can only say that the food here is not the most authentic representation of regional dishes ... it's worth the drive to nearby Brownsville to try the Taco Palenque

We ate here for supper last night. We thought the food easy delicious. There was so much food we could not eat all of it. We also enjoyed the frozen Margareta s. We might eat here again. The waitress was frendly and efficient. The price was about average for a good Mexican resturant.

Came here for some Tex Mex and was not disappointed. Enjoyed the meal. I got a massive margarita thing and it was good as well.

The Salsa and chips were great! Was disappointed in ground beef chimichanga. Was half refried beans inside! Drinks were good

We were wondering if we should go eat here because there were not many cars in the parking lot. But we went in and had a great dinner and they have good service. I would go back again.

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!
