This place was just another Mexican place just like every other. The waitress spoke very little English and we had a hard time communicating with her. My wife asked for a plain margarita and got a mango margarita, also she ordered Enchiladas made with floured tortillas instead of corn and was told they couldn't do that we asked why not... More

Señor Donkey was recommended by our condo staff. Everything was delicious! The salsa was awesome and served with fresh chips. My daughters said it was the best enchiladas and taquitos they have had. Usually, the rice and beans are an after thought thrown on the plate but even that was great! Everyone enjoyed their meal!

Our group of six was seated promptly for lunch today and the service was excellent! The daily lunch special was a blackened fish with garlic served with rice, but they substituted beans at our request. The blackened fish taquitos were a favorite, although my nephew preferred the special. I opted for the fried oysters and shrimp, which were good but... More

Went for lunch and this place was packed! The staff was short staffed when we went and they were still really nice and very helpful. Did not have to wait long for anything. And the food was AMAZING!

Really expected more this far south of Texas and close to the border. Agree with one reviewer who mentioned the salsa was to much like tomato sauce - my husband compared it to tomato soup. No hint of heat. Tried the queso - don't. It's just Velveeta like product with no heat either. Hubby ordered blackened fish dish. He said... More

Loved the Salas it was hot and warm. I had the Fajita Torta and it was huge! My wife loved the Cheese Enchiladas. The waiter was great! We had fast service even with it being busy. The waiter was very attentive to both myself and my wife. We will be back again!!

As usual in many Mexican restaurants, you receive chips and salsa at the start. This salsa tasted as if it were made with a canned tomato soup. However, the menu was greatly varied and the food itself was very tasty! We're going back here before we leave the area because we so greatly enjoyed the food and we received great... More
