Yummy eclectic food. Great service as well. It has an interesting mix of Mexican and Greek food so it's perfect if you can't decide what kind of dinner you feel like. The prices are reasonable for a nice dinner and the atmosphere is very fun. We eat there at least once every visit.

Cute little restaurant...interesting mix of Greek and Mexican cuisine. Not sure if it works though. I had the lamb fajitas with lemon rice and roasted veggies. The veggies were tasty but the rice was hard (undercooked or kept on the stove to long) there was at most 3 tablespoons of meat. No joke!!! My companion had the beef fajitas with beans and rice. The was plate was almost full with the beans and rice and a TINY bit of beef. We didn't order anything to drink and this small lunch was nearly $40.00. Way way to much$$$...when you can get far better at Chevy's. Service was friendly, but we won't back and don't recommend The Wild Donkey. Too expensive for what you get and certainly not unique enough to justify the cost.

Wild Donkey has become our go to local eatery. My personal favorites are the Stuffed Pablano
Peppers and the Moussaka. If not overly hungry, the Peasant Bowl is a tasty option. Restaurant is small so it can typically be crowded. Gluten free options. Service has always been above average.

Honestly the best Greek food in town is Petra and for almost half the price. This restaurant is nothing to write home about. It is small and crowded for lunch. Only one person serving, and way over priced for lunch. Downtown places like the Habit and Firestone are a better bite for you buck.
