“Excellent Mexican, recommended by a local.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2010

Ate at Big Donkey twice in a week visit to SPI. First time the food and service were great. The second time the service was not good but the service was still great. Highly recommend the Blackened Fish Tacos, outstanding!

“Service was slow, food was average...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2010

Service was slow, food was average, nothing spectacular. The only thing I did love was the $3 Margaritas in a variety of flavors! The sangria flavor was the best!

“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..
