I usually judge the quality of Mexican Food with their chips. DonKey's chips are awesome! Thin & crisp. I didn't really like their salsa at first (it was warmed instead of cold) which I thought was a little odd, but it was good. The queso was my favorite. Good service and pretty good prices too.

Many visits to the Don'Key over the years, and still enjoy it. The Don'key ritas really do live up to their reputation---they will kick your donkey! They were in the middle of a remodel last time we ventured to Pasadena, and the service and food were the same, really good. The food is solid Tex-Mex, the chips and salsa fresh and spicy. All the standards like tacos and enchiladas are great. The shrimp are pretty donkeylishous too. If you are looking for someplace different than the run of the mill chain, give it a try.

Had lunch here last week and really enjoyed the authentic tex-mex food but the outstanding deal was the wonderful Margaritas. Well worth the hour drive to invite. Frozen delight in a glass so good we had a second one.

Looks like they are doing major renovations. Very busy place. I might have ordered the wrong thing. I was a little disappointed by the lack of flavor. The margarita, not sure if there was any Tequila in it. Texas has much better places for great food.

It has been years since we visited and thought why not try again? We took out family and friends for a good time. Margaritas were mixed without tequila. Tortillas were under cooked, yuck!
