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,...

My husband and I had dinner here. The salsas (red and green) were very good as was the guacamole. The pork chunk tacos were also good, the pastor and chorizo tacos were just okay. We really wanted to love it, but we were a little disappointed.

Went based on a TA search for authentic Mexican food and they didn't disappoint. The guacamole was great, not that smooth liquefied kind that you get in the not so authentic places but chunky and fresh. I had the tacos, one pollo, one carnitas and one carne asada. They come with the usual fare of cilantro and onions and they... More

I lived 10 years in San Antonio, Texas before moving to Fort Lauderdale and I have struggled to find authentic Mexican food here in South Floirda - NOT Tex-Mex but serious authentic Mexican cooking. I am a huge fan on Mole. I have tried many, many different reciopes and consider myself somewhat of a Mole connoisseur (or whatever the Spanish... More

Living in Boston, we really crave authentic Mexican food and this showed up upon search. I don't have enough words to tell you how awesome the food was. Great flavors and great service. Our waitress was very patient, helpful and genuine. I don't drink beer but loved their michelada - must try! Overall, I highly recommend this to anyone looking... More
