We liked this resturant enough to go back the next day. In that time, the name appeared to change from Big Donkey Restaurant to Senor Donkey Restaurant! Prices were extremely reasonable - a $5 order of calamari off the starters section would have been enough for a meal, especially with the delicious salsa and tortilla chips. Service was very good. On another visit I would look for something not deep fried, Had deep fried entrees both nights and found the oysters especially too crisp and thus dry.

Service was quick. Authentic Mexican cuisine. Food was fresh and tasty. Not out of the world but good enough. The portions were huge, so it's a big meal. We tried the taquitos and quesadilla.

Many people rave about the Big Donkey but I like some other of Dirty Al's restaurants better. Good food but slightly overpriced. Seems smaller than old place even though a hugh building.

My guests liked this place so much that we ended up eating there twice for dinner and one time for breakfast! They just started serving breakfast not long ago, and it was very good.

We had great service and very good food each time. The salsa was too hot for all of us but other than that the food was great. The 4 of us tried lots of different items from the menu and all was very good.

Started off with a good bloody mary with chips and salsa. And got even better when the food got there. It was authentic Mexican cuisine. Plenty to eat. Reasonable prices. Very tasty place on the Island to enjoy a night out. Would recommend this establishment to any one visiting the Island.
