“Big Donkey South Padre TX”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

We've been frequenting Big Donkey for several years while 'snow birding'. They have good daily specials. Friendly staff. Prompt service. Fun happy hour with live music. Also, check out local authentic Mex places in Pt Isabel..just across the causeway. A couple of the cafes are especially good & cheap. Look for the ones with lots of cars outside!

“Cool Name, nothing special inside”

Atmosphere was more like a large banquet room inside. kinda boring. Food was just ok, nothing special.

“Poor Service, food so-so.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2012

I didn't care for the food. However the Frajitas was a good value because there was so much chicken. Our waiter was nice but took awhile to get what we wanted. Asked the waiter at the next table to get more water & he said it wasn't his table & ignored us. They nickled and dimed us too. Charging a $1 for a small ramiken of cheese and a $1 for some extra limes. I won't be going back.
