Pretty Authentic Mexican Cuisine

We were looking for a Mexican restaurant nearby our timeshare. We used Trip Advisor to find this little gem. The prices were very reasonable. The beans and rice were some of the best I have had. The tamale...ehh...too much masa. I had the carnitas taco...yumm! We also purchased for $5 the... read more

Living in Boston, we really crave authentic Mexican food and this showed up upon search. I don't have enough words to tell you how awesome the food was. Great flavors and great service. Our waitress was very patient, helpful and genuine. I don't drink beer but loved their michelada - must try! Overall, I highly recommend this to anyone looking... More

This is a hidden gem! I love eating here because the flavors are authentic. From their tacos to moles, everything that I tried in this restaurant is great.

minimal decor.....but that's not why you're there. You seat yourself at a numbered table and brought a small bowl of fresh chips and GREAT salsa's......not american style with chunks of tomato and onion. These salsa's are puree's. One is a tomato based and the other is a tomatillo and cilantro....both DELISH!!!.....my friend and I split a jalapeno and cheese tamale... More

The food at Taqueria Dona Raquel is very good and as you walk in the food is being prepared in full view of its clients. The mole was very, very good and the party of 12 was very happy. The restaurant's location it's not very appealing neither is the restaurant but the food makes up for it and definitely visit... More

We were looking for authentic Mexican food, it is authentic and very inexpensive. We ordered tacos, tostadas....everything just tasted the same. the chips and salsa were good, they had beer as well. Was a Friday night, was on the empty side at 8pm, a singer was entertaining us. Probably will keep looking for another place.

I spent some time in San Antonio and got a real feel for TexMex. My favorite place there was Taco Cabana with their cabrito tacos. I felt that I was in a waste land for really good Mexican food until I discovered Casa Frida in Fort Lauderdale - that is, until yesterday when I ate at Taqueria Dona Raquel in... More

However the service was quick, friendly - they speak english and spanish. the... More

Doña Raquel is about the best, affordable Mexican restaurant in this area. Service is always very good and all the wait staff is personable and friendly. They usually address me in English so I conclude that all are bi-lingual. One unusual aspect of this place is that if you don't see what you want on the menu, ask. If they... More
