My friends and I were in South Padre Island for a friend's wedding. We wanted an authentic Mexican meal while on the Island and this restaurant came highly recommended. I noticed on their menu that they didn't have Churros, but the friendly waiter said their drinks were like dessert! That said, I ordered the biggest strawberry margarita I had ever... More

We have eaten here several times and the food is always so delicious. The staff is friendly and so informative about what they have to offer in food choices as well as upcoming events to be held there.

Went here after a long day at the beach. The food was good and the service was good; however, when we received the bill I was a little disappointed. Considering the cost of living in the Rio Grande Valley I was very surprised at how much the meal cost. For much less I would travel to Emelias in Brownsville, or... More

I had the beef tacos with extra fresh jalapenos with a Dos Equis beer and it sure was tasty. The salsa was just right and they served warm chips at the table when we set down. The service was good and the price was reasonable.

We were looking for a fun location for dinner and definitely found it! The atmosphere was vibrant and there was no shortage of tvs to watch your favorite team. The service was superb and reasonably priced!

Just so-so. On the good side, chips are good and super crispy, service friendly and attentive. Huge margaritas. I ordered the dish I always get at a Mexican restaurant, chicken chile rellenos , but could not finish. Meal served at lukewarm temperature, refried beans already had cooled. Shredded chicken had an off flavor, perhaps marinaded in a smokey BBQ sauce,... More

If you are craving authentic Mexican food, try Senor Donkey . The atmosphere is great, the food is amazing and the margaritas are stout.😊

Very good Mexican. Large portions and I wished I could've taken home my leftovers, but left town too soon. Unfortunately, margaritas were watered down.

One of our favorite places to eat on the Island! Food is always great, service is good, never have to wait. They have a Seafood Botana that feeds the whole family. I usually go for my favorite when we go there though, I Luv the Mexican Taquitos! They are soooooo good! Definitely a must if you want Mexican food.
