“NOT SO GOOD”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

The food isn't TexMex or Mexican. It's just bland food. Can get better Mexican in Mansfield, PA.
There are too many other good restaurants in this part of the country to waste your money here.

“Bait and switch tactics On drink specials!!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

We had dinner at The Big Donkey. Our disappointment came from the very beginning when the salsa arrived with steam coming out of it! Hot salsa??

One of the main reasons we chose to go there was due to their advertised happy hour special,$3 margaritas!! Their website plus the local newspaper advertisement stated $3margaritas specials Monday through Friday.
However, Our server informed us that because it was Monday the special was FIVE Dollar margaritas! Even after I Requested the advertised $3 margaritas specials I was told they were not available Because it was Monday!

Next came the main course which was a mixed grill fajita.
It was just average. The Pico de Gallo That accompanied it appeared to be a few days old.

All in all the big donkey was disappointing!

“Food was excellent, not a value choice”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

The atmosphere was very fun, sports bar meets mexican restaurant. The food was very good, awesome queso. The average meal was about $12-15, but we got plenty to eat at that price.

“fun Facebook tag in”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

I honestly went here for lunch because of the name. The place is ok, atmosphere is fun, service was good, but the food was not what I was looking for. Mexican food is my favorite and I wasnt that impressed, It wasnt bad, wasnt great..just average. Im a pretty tough critic when it comes to mexican food though. Worth going just to say you were there

Great Mexican food at a reasonable price. Wonderful decor, clean and friendly staff. We always make it a point to visit TBD while on the Island.
