There are some great dishes here. Not for those seeking a plate of junk smothered with cheese. Some serious heat in one of the salsas. Very authentic feel too.

I like the authenticity of this place. Servers are fast and speak both english and Spanish fluently. Not so fast service but it is fresh, understandable.

What a good surprise when my friend told me I know a Mexican restaurant not far from here. At first I was undecided, Mexican restaurant in South Florida... As we were parking I realize that it was going to be good. The parking was full, and that always a good sign. Inside you are back in Mexico, decoration, food and... More

Doña Raquel is the way traditional Mexican taquerias are set up and the quality of the food doesn't disappoint. This is not the place for Americanized Mexican food. This place is not fancy, it is not elegant, it is nothing except good food and good service at very moderate prices! Whenever I am homesick I go to Doña Raquel and... More

This place has very good Mexican food. If its ambience you are looking for ... perhaps not the place. It definitely makes up for the ambience with flavor. Servers are very helpful and friendly. Tacos are the best! You can get multiple tacos (soft shell) as they are only around $2.50 each. We got 6 different ones; personally liked the... More

For once a rather authentic Mexican restaurant. Unpretentious. Good service. In the USA almost impossible to find a good mexican fare, as most are tex-mex. Given the quality of food in Mexico, here it pales in comparison. But Dona Raquel is up to the challenger and compares to a popular joint in the streets of Mexico. The carnitas are excellent,...
