“Horrible place, keep going to your next choice”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2010

We were seated right away and then nothing for 15 minutes at 2 in the afternoon and hardly anyone in the place. Our food order was tasteless and not anything what was expected based on the menu description. There is really nothing big about this donkey!!!!

“Great Mexican Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2010

I had a chili relleno like no other last night. Shrimp stuffed- this thing is not a flat relleno, it is about 3" in diameter and so good.
My wife had beef enchiladas and enjoyed her meal as well.
The salsa could have had more flavor but other than that it was a great dining experience. I highly recommend you give it a try. And I love Mexican food..

“Nice atmosphere, good food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2010

Both my husband and I had their Mexican plate (one with chicken and one with beef). It was good. The waitress could have been friendlier. It was a typical Mexican decor which was nice.

“Great shrimp and fresh fish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2010

Had fried shrimp and another dish which was shrimp in a spicy cream sauce.
Very large helping of large shrimp for $10. By far the largest serving we have gotten on the island.
I had fillet of flounder topped with cheese and spinach which was excellant for $8
Daily happy hour is 3-7 with 22 oz marguarita for $3.
Located next to Super 8 hotel.
