“Good food, good service, good for birthday celebration”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

We arrived to celebrate our granddaughter's birthday. I asked the manager if they did anything for birthdays and he said they would fix up some chalupas and the staff would sing. They also brought out a huge sombrero for the birthday girl and led us all in a rousing Happy Birthday song!! The food was good and the service was fine. Laid back place and good place for large family outings.

“Great Salsa”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

Big Donkey has excellent homemade chips and salsa and very affordable peel-n-eat shrimp. Steak tacos were fresh and delicious. I would definitely go there again!

“Good enough for two visits!”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

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.

“Decent food. Friendly staff.”
Reviewed March 20, 2013 via mobile

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.
