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

Whenever I travel in the U.S. I look for tacos. Not just any tacos, but the tacos I ate when I was young in the slums of the Distrito Federal, Mexico City. Those tacos were made of mysterious meats roasted over roaring fires, surrounded by yelling men, calling out their commands. While the scene is never like what I experienced... More

As close as it can get to Mexican food. Good flavors, real Mexican. Not texmex. Service is very good too.
