“EXCELLENT choice for families!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2011

The location is convenient to hotels on the N. end of the island, and the atmosphere is great for families and couples alike. Very unassuming, the food blew us away with it's authentic mexican flavors and the LARGE portion sizes! The Big Donkey Rita is worth every penny - more of a savory vs. sweet take on the Texas fav...the bathrooms are very clean and the staff friendly and approachable. The AUTHENTIC SOPAPILLS brought back loads of happy childhood memories...Can't say enough...so try it already!!!

“Best Mexican Food in the area!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2011

Quite a few people locals and visitors said if you want the real deal go to The Big Donkey.....they were right! If you like authentic and spicy go to this place!!! We loved it. We went twice in one week! But if you're truly a lover of Mexican food like I am, be prepared to drink a lot of water and/or margaritas! Hot!! The only thing I could say I didn't like but its just my personal preference is to tell them to hold back on the cilantro. Otherwise, this place is great!
